Rumors about this started over 2 years ago - never heard anything about "spy photos of a mule testing in Arizona." Is there a source for that?

I want to believe, but for eh moment I do not...

An embarrassingly heavy and ridiculously overpowered naked that is also hideously expensive?

Sounds like the perfect bike for today's fantasy driven high-end market. Check that eight-inch rear tyre.

I wish they'd just import the K1300R they are already building and selling elsewhere:

I think roadsters as a category are a problem for BMW in the states, and things are going to only get worse as the big four start to bring in roadsters with electronic gizmos (If a Z1000 with abs, TC, and optional heated grips shows up next month and I think my r12r might be for sale).

I only ever saw a k1200r once, and had over 50k on it. I liked it, but I'm weird.

Looks too massive for me. Also 6 cylinders=lots of valves to adjust! I'm still stoked about the KTM 1290 Superduke R. I really like the v-twin engine.

I agree, this engine, uncorked a bit, sounds crazy fantastic.

I just can't stand that they hide this gorgeous thing behind all that shrouding and radiator gunk. I want to see six pipes, ala the CBX, and not a big plastic bug-catcher. Somehow, I would hope they could expose a bit of this beauty.
