You may be right, but I may be crazy.

I don't see a water pump or hose either, looks like maybe an oil cooler and line up front.
Some finning in front of cylinder/head also.... could still be called a "wethead"

Are you assuming that the tank is that thing in front of the rider? If BMW moved the air box forward for a straight shot to the heads the tank may be someplace else.

In looking at these pictures I do not understand why the exhaust pipe needs to be bent forward and then loop around back again. Seems needless bends, length weight. The place meant of the foot peg, brake or shifter seem far enough back so there would be not interference. Might it be a heat thing?

My guess, vote also be for the large wide tank thing is a combo radiator ducting, air box, with the fuel tank and battery under the seat and maybe further back like the F800s. The picture sure do make that tank/radiator thing wide...nearly as wide as the cylinders.

PS in the previous post I was not taking a shot at the GSA...just some fun at the parking lot ballerinas tip toeing around.

Dont know the exact #'s, but there is quite a significant difference between the 2 in the ability to shed heat.

The bar-design image shows a significantly different bike.


I'm refering to the picture Spoke reposted, not the first ones in the thread, of course

Well that's different. At 5'8" I am definitley tip-toeing around! I am definitely more graceful moving Vs. stopped!
