is it just me that I felt lucky that I got the last of the air cool GSA.
The new look is :huh
And here is the link to the above
Looks interesting. Give them a couple years to shake it out and it could be fun!
The Wunderlich render of the Adventure at post 2275 looks much better.
First mod for me!
They look like street tires in the pics.
I see a viable aftermarket product in some kind of cowl or cover to replace those pointy radiator covers.
The addition of a slipper clutch is great. I have one on my 07, and would miss it.
Any word yet on final drive failures?
I'm excited to buy a used one in 3 or 4 years.
Damn, damn, damn. It looks better than I thought it would. Can't wait to ride one. g-
I wonder what the Adventure model would look like!
Well it's ugly, but I'll take one. There goes my 1000 dollar Russell day long. I lined it up axel nut to axel nut and triple tree To triple tree crudely on Photoshop and the seat looks to be a good 2 inches shorter than a gs low seat on the old model
What's with the "spork" on the front? The GS is starting to look like a Ducati Multistada
Specs look good but the bike not so much. The new KTM 1190 is looking better.
Looks like they ran out of room to put the 'all important' BMW logo.
That would be the FIRST thing to go to save weight.
Touratech's/Wunderlich's 'take' would probably be: We have a GUARD for that!
I don't like the oil filter location,it will be easy to get some oil on the header or skid plate
Too much plastic for me.
From Strom's post of the guts of the press pack, here:
Emphasis added. Unfortunately, it appears you have to pony up for the Dynamic ESA option, with computer controlled dampers, in order to get this.
Imagine ... the front and [rear] wheel brake operate entirely separately from one another!!!!
In other news:
Same wheelbase, two-inch longer swingarm.
Full slipper clutch.
The ride-by-wire automatically keeps the throttles in sync between services.
Steeper steering head.
Narrower seat-tank junction.
Isn't it about the same as the current GS is rated?
Fuel consumption per 100 km at constant 90 km/h 57 mpg at a constant 56 mph (4.1 l)
Stylistically everything in front of the logo is going to take some getting used to or require modification. Everything in back of the logo looks pretty good. I like the new tank treatment and the seat looks narrower at the front for us shorties. The tech looks pretty good too but the slipper clutch can be a mixed bag in off-road riding. I'm sure there's more power in the motor and BMW usually is pretty conservative with their power figures anyway. Asphaltandrubber.com lists the weight at 525# without fuel. But the BMW press release states 238kg ready to ride. So it gained about 20#. I 'd suspect most of that is the clutch relocation and drive transfer.
