Some more details from the other article:
  • 3rd crankshaft bearing
  • camshafts driven by gear drives instead of chains?
  • gearbox from chinese factory ...

Give it a set of knobbies and a radiator guard, I'll be the official Oz test rider.

BMW? You listening??? I will be sure to try it in varied conditions.

It loses it's luster when you see the cost versus the existing industry leading tank.
A centralised fuel tank may give better balance for day to day riding, but will in my opinion stuff up the load carrying ability for big adventures. Too much rear tyre load would equal rapid rear tyre wear.

You can be the OZ tester, but I call dibs on NA. They need me as a tester.

Can someone please PM me those pics? I don't mind hosting them online for a bit and will certainly take them down promptly if asked by the copyright
holder.

Where are you guys saying that the new clutch is located? I am having a hard time understanding the architecture.

OTOH, if it were like, say, a CBR, it used to take me just a half hour to swap out clutch packs. Such ease of serviceability on a BMW would be wonderful.

That's one ugly artist rendering and the cooler looks like the new oversized oil cooler on the R1200R

BMW clones the Ducati beak. TT should get on this right away with a mask.

Proof again that you can be a "good Illustrator" (this dude is not even that good, bad shadows, scale, etc) and have no Clue about design, style and sense of proportion.

Pardon me, but is there confirmation this new engine is 1300 cc? Where did that figure come from?
