Looks interesting. Different style frame for sure. I wonder how that would stand up to casing it over a set of doubles?

BMW has got a real hard on for KTM right now. I think KTM may take a little of BMWs market share now, but BMW is looking at the future and how strong KTM is becoming. I think they are worried.

I hope BMW does not try to be too innovative. Cannondale really showed the Japanese how it's done. If I were BMW I would throw all the 450 off-road bike's specs in a blender, average them out, and shoot right down the middle. They can bring innovation later, they better bring a bike that works first.

lets put it this way... if BMW sells as many 450's as have been posted in this forum... theyd be set for years to come.

Is BMW really making a true enduro?

Won't it be weird to see BMW and Buell competing in Enduro?
It's gonna happen sooner or later, just wait.
I like it.

Does any other manufacturer currently offer FI on a 450 enduro ?

The foot Pegs are exactly the same as used on the HP2, 1200ADV and G650 X.
Yes it was done on the cannondale and is still available as a rebadged ATK.

I keep hearing peeps talkin bout a Buell Enduro I googled it but all i found was the Ulysis . I did find one promising looking motard cross looking bike on a dutch or german site. I used a translator but some things are lost in the translation. I will post in both launguages and i do not know how to post photos so if one of you kind gents would go there and clip it i would be greatful. the photo is three quarters of the page down http://www.rohrrahmen.de/faq/index.html

Gab es! Aber die wurde von Buell Hannover zur Super-Moto umgebaut ;-)
Die XB9 gibt es in einer Version mit Handschützern. Sieht crossig aus, ist es aber nicht.
Die seit 2005 erhältlich XB12 Ulysses reitet auch nur auf dem GS-Erfolg, geht beim Sturz im Gelände ganz fürchterlich kaputt und kopiert auf 2 Rädern das, was Mutti auf 4 Rädern bewegt: Den Cayenne zum Kinder-in-Hort-Fahren.

It gave! But that was rebuilt of Buell Hanover to the super-Moto; -) the XB9 there is in a version with Handschützern. Crossig looks, it is not however. That XB12 Ulysses available since 2005 rides also only on the GS-success, goes in the slump in the terrain entirely terrible broken and copies that on 2 wheels what mom moves on 4 wheels: The Cayenne to the child-in-heard-going.

The Buell 450 was announced to dealers but no images, no design info has been released yet.
