Don't know if it was photoshopped or not, or how much cred it gets, but the fourth photo I see BMW's motorrad head of design on the background. What is missing is the boxer motor, but the competition from Japan has that nice six cylinder motor, so it makes sense for BMW to use their six.

Real baggers have floorboards not foot pegs. If you have not ridden with floorboards you don't know what you are missing

Motorcycles don't have a floor, cars do. Although it seems to me that the ugly exhaust on this bike doubles as a floor board / foot warmer.
Holy smokes, that thing is ugly.
I'll take the R9T.

Bagger, or Gagger? I'd rather have a bent walking stick.

Question

Hmm...

I've got a Honda F6B but this, seems stranger again. That front wheel looks bizarre. Might look better in the flesh, felt the same way about the R1200RT (14 model & up) hated the pics, looked ok when I finally got to see.

'Bagger' is such an unfortunate name.

Where are the mirrors?

It's taking cues from the custom baggers that are hot at the moment. The last thing they'd try and copy is a Honda product.

Needs some fuzzy dice on the dash.
