Looks dorky but I bet it's a winner for BMW, provided there aren't too many new-model glitches.

It is a step towards the Multistrada/Triumph Explorer concept, with wider rubber, a bit more power and a higher rev ceiling.

Elecronic cruise and full LED lighting will be very handy. The motor will likely be quieter. The on-road handling and braking will be better and the bike will feel more secure in turns. One hundred and twenty five horsepower is more than enough and the torque output now matches the Multi's.

Off the tarmac, we'll see. Can't imagine more weight (if it is more), vulnerable radiators, more grunt or wider rubber will help a lot there. Although there IS 8mm more ground clearance!

Wonder how big the fuel tank is? They are saving that up. And as said, the fuel efficiency.

Really? Damn! Hoped they'd give us 24 and match the new KTM.

The new bike is live on BMW's International website, which is struggling ...

Dorsicano, thanks for posting the specs.

Just chatted with Chris Pfeiffer at the show, he has been riding it a fair bit, the best feature he says is the narrowness of the bike and the TBs being moved on top out of the way gives lots of room for the legs to move around. Moving the shaft to the left side has also eliminated any residual driveline pull to one side for some reason. LED lights are an option. Weighs about the same as the current GS.

Here's a good question. Has the new GS been designed to run on ethanol-laced fuel. Since Germany is now beginning to endorced such foolishness, I would expect the Germans to build a bike that can handle at least 10% ratio.

The engine ...

Nice tech piece of the new engine design here at moto.it - Google translate does a good job.

Tidbits:

- the water cooling adds 2.7kg (about 6 lbs)

- it contributes only 35 per cent of the overall cooling (up from 22 per cent for the oil cooling)

- compression up half a point

- each cylinder cast with its vertically split crankcase half

- crankshaft is stiffer

- crankpins are closer together

- hence cylinders offset less

- vertical intake path facilitates equal-length intake ducts, which helps with throttle sync

- valve overlap is reduced, as Ducati has done on the Multistrada (cf the 1198), which should mean more low-rev grunt.

- intake and exhaust valves get their own camshafts (rather than half and half as before)

- which opens the way for variable valve timing on THE NEXT GS

(Thanks to inmate luca9277 for posting the link in another thread.)

Apparently no info on pricing yet, wonder how that will turn out. The Configurator still seems to be the old GS, if I'm not mistaken.

Looks quite decent imo.
