    The new BMW diet.
    Basically it's eat all you want and still make weight.

    114 kg is 251 lbs. I really don't think that this BMW weights the same as a 525.

    114kg = 251lbs not bad if its a 6 speed, fuel injected bike with OEM muffler that can shave another 5-10lbs with the aftermarket and maybe find another 2-3 hp. Was also hoping for a Vtwin 450 like the Aprillia, maybe down the road.

    I agree with Hair, there is no way that this weighs in at 251#. Looks good though! I hope that they have really gone serious and addressed some of the issues like the air filter. If they did and can hold some kind of price point, it will be a hit.

    Cool. That could be a great DS bike. Especially for my girlfriend. Light weight and small looking. I wonder how much$$$

    Ya right...

    I REALLY like the supermoto version. Could be an eventual replacement for my R6 when my body tells me I just can't ride repli-racers anymore. Or at least when I start listening.
