But some details are damn good. So i wonder who draw this picture...

Brilliantly put. And like everything else, you buy so long as the "balance" is acceptable.

I don't understand what the problem and all the hoo haa is...moto cross bikes are all watercooled now, when they made the cross over from air to water cooled they didn't get heavier...I think you will see water cooled twin motors for the BMW actually get smaller in capacity, they will be lighter and more powerful and more efficient.
You don't see the Paris Dakar bikes getting held up with watercooling and less capacity.
Apply the technology asap.
1000cc water cooled twin with 150rwhp and the blue and white badge and coming across the scales under 200kg.
Winner.
