that looks like total crap!
Give it a set of knobbies and a radiator guard, I'll be the official Oz test rider.
BMW? You listening??? I will be sure to try it in varied conditions.
A centralised fuel tank may give better balance for day to day riding, but will in my opinion stuff up the load carrying ability for big adventures. Too much rear tyre load would equal rapid rear tyre wear.
Whats with that beak? And that radiator will be full of mud in no time.
You can be the OZ tester, but I call dibs on NA. They need me as a tester.

Can someone please PM me those pics? I don't mind hosting them online for a bit and will certainly take them down promptly if asked by the copyright
Where are you guys saying that the new clutch is located? I am having a hard time understanding the architecture.
OTOH, if it were like, say, a CBR, it used to take me just a half hour to swap out clutch packs. Such ease of serviceability on a BMW would be wonderful.
That's one ugly artist rendering and the cooler looks like the new oversized oil cooler on the R1200R
BMW clones the Ducati beak. TT should get on this right away with a mask.
Proof again that you can be a "good Illustrator" (this dude is not even that good, bad shadows, scale, etc) and have no Clue about design, style and sense of proportion.
Pardon me, but is there confirmation this new engine is 1300 cc? Where did that figure come from?
On the first picture, I don't know if I'm mistaken, Plus with out the transmission to compare is hard to tell, But looks to me like the crank shaft is pretty High in relationship to the block (higher than on the current engines) If that is the case, do you guys think the Input for the tranny will be "Above" the gearbox making it far more compact, well shorter to accommodate a even longer swingarm and/or a shorter wheel base:eek1
Here it reads as follows:
75 stroke x 100 bore => 1178 cm³
75 x 102 => 1225
78 x 102 => 1274
"Confirmation"? You really ask for "confirmation" - by whom? BMW?
So the cylinders are part of the engine crankcase. OK. Can you imagine how the pistons are installed...? When & where shall the piston pins be pushed in...?
Overhauling... :eek1? You think that clutch changing is a MCA? You ain't seen nothing yet.
Well, since the Nikasil days way back in the airhead mesozoicum, the excessive wear of pistons / cylinders (meaning regular boring and oversized pistons) is more or less over. But think of all the tuning shops selling their "fablulous super hi-pro performance big-bang pistons" ... better think of something new, guys. Betta getta EPROM burner. Machining? Forget it - learn C#...
Yeah how do they do it....:huh
I was wondering about that too, Do they install them when the cases are "Split", Man what a pain in the butt, Even more if you ever need to work on them and/or replace anything even a job as simple as the rings.:eek1
Then again the target audience for this bike, Will not keep the bike for more than a few years (even A Year like you sadly see around here all the time) so is a None Issue at least for them....
Disposable Engines My ASs
You could be right, Ricardo. And, from an engineering standpoint, I suppose that not having to keep seals tight at joints between cylinders and blocks, is a plus for the idea, but who the hell wants to pull the motor and split the cases to re-ring or put in a new piston.
