Today's Dealer Scuttle'butt......

Sources tell me that a new cruiser from BMW is definitely in the pipeline.
4 cylinder boxer? or some sorta 3 cylinder. Hmmmmmm?
Also a GS model paying homage? to the P/D bikes of past???....which will be based on the R-Nine T platform.
And......RS models should be hitting showrooms like "real quick". They've been stateside sitting in a warehouse for almost a month now.
......carry on.......

There was a story not far back on them working up some 3-cylinder ideas that were kind of neat-o.

maybe a derivative of the new B-series engine family? BMW has a history of using car engines in bikes (K75/100)

My dealer also mentioned a "W-3" engine in the works.

I liked the look of this Guzzi prototype from the '80s




No telling how it would be mounted in the bike frame, but this looks kinda cool.

The guys at BMW already know something is coming and will shake their planet. The GS will remain an excellent touring bike, but for off-roading, people will most likely opt for the new Africa Twin.
