Wet clutch, cases split vertically, cylinders are now part of the crank case, engine & tranny use the same oil etc.

At least the leaking tranny input and CS rear seals will be a thing of the past!

One strange thing about that pic, though, is that it seems to have a set of gears AND a chain up front that appear to be driving the same shaft - which would be a serious problem, since they would be trying to drive the shaft in two directions at once!. Also, the starter motor looks like it's INSIDE the tranny. Probably totally bogus, but who knows...

Crank is on the back and is a wet clutch. Transmission is in the case instead of in a separate case.

The media announcement actually just refers to it as the "BMW R 1200 GS successor model" -- no mention of displacement or model name. Here's the link.

Bearing in mind that it is an artist's rendering so won't be totally dimensionally accurate, I think the forward chain turns the shaft that the cam chains run off of, and the forward gear is on a shaft running through the crank that is keyed to the clutch in the back, and drives the gear on a transmission shaft on the front ! Does that make any sense at all?

Marki here in the states we pay almost 5 bucks for premium or diesel...
A lot of VW TDI's here...
Ricardo I remember your bike but it was a short suspended R1100S...
I know the pictures and wet clutch but still don't know how many hp and if the clutch sits in front of the engine or on top of the tranny?!
In 14 days we'll know...
Can't wait,exiting times for bmw fans !!!

The gears up front run the counterbalance shaft and the chain drive up front runs the cam countershaft, along the same axis, just as they do in the present design. The alternator IMO will be internal and up front of the engine. The clutch is on the aft of the crankshaft, operating at crankshaft speed, thus can be smaller than say the clutch pack of a K bike.

Sounds good like the first engine drawings in MOTORRAD thought.
I just wonder what is behind the way-out front cover ?
The clutch maybe if MOTORRAD was wrong...

Agreed, you won't find the quote I provided there, however
BMW has more than one link

For example:
http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/index.html
Check the news section, under the heading "experience"
Excerpt from BMW international news:

" The launch will be made at INTERMOT in Cologne: On 37 October BMW Motorrad will be celebrating the world premiere of the new R 1200 GS. "

Verbatim from BMW.

Was going to make the same reply about the coax balance shaft and cam drive.

I've always wondered why they usually run bike clutches after the primary reduction. I suppose it's just a necessity of packaging.

That picture shows the clutch in front but it was a "Motorrad R95 G/S" study in February and not the new engine.

I'd make the same bet. Perhaps it's for the GSA, optional on the GSA, or someone said "hey lets put a 21-incher on and ride it by the spy photographers"...or maybe it *is* just photographic perspective.

I still think it'd be funnier than hell if the R1201GS was actually air cooled and they'd just stuck fake radiators to all the mules.

The front wheel is definately a 19' and that is good so !
The rear is a 170 or 180 I would say,definately wider than the current 150 which indicates the new one will be a torquey beast...!
First speculations had the clutch sitting on top of the tranny but I wonder why there is such a big bulge in the front cover?
I would not bet against the clutch siiting behind it...
Feel like 8 years again.
December 10th and still haven't found all the presents...
