Dang, I actually think its quite the looker.

I can see it being beautiful with the right tail/exhaust combination. And some bar end mirrors, of course.

Nice work, BMW.

Any one notice the overuse of 3/4 helmets, flannel and urban settings in the press shots?

I see that in a lot of press shots nowadays .

Still, that bike is awesome. I'd take one in the blue from the current 1200r, please.

Yup. The new LC motor is one sweet power unit. Might be worth hanging on to see what the R1200R LC is like.

It's the first BMW that doesn't look like ass to me.

Priced at $10K I'd consider it, but I think it may cost a wee bit more.

Yeah, but the whole point is to blow out old stock of the camhead motor before the roadster goes water cooled in ~2015.

With BMW on board, we can now declare the 'cafe' shark well and truly jumped.
