Yea, this one still baffles me.
I wonder what the alternator output is going to be.
Awesome! I love the look and you wait until you see one on the road. It's going to be a very eye catching bike. I'm not about to give up my Multistrada but that's the first GS since the 1150ADV I've desired.
I bought my 2009 in Jan. 2010 because there were no 2010's yet.
Great pics RL. Thanks for posting them!
Great photos, thanks! As previously mentioned, a lot of good updates and improvements, such as:
-Wet clutch, accessible from front
-Higher air intakes for deeper water crossings
-Exhaust moved to right side of bike, leaving more space in the most-used left side pannier.
I'm not really digging the "spork" beak shape, however
clutch is in the front
all 293 high res photo's in one place
Anyone else seeing a little of this from the front of the bike?
I'm sure it will look better in person. And this...
This is a hot mess right here: "No I don't want to see how much fuel is left, I just need to.. aw shit I've turned on my flashers.. could I just.. WHERE THE FUCK IS THE HIGH BEAM!?!?!!!"
Pretty sure the Adventure came out in 2006 and was white and had servo brakes.
Side stand on the left and oil sight glass on the right can only mean two things:
-a sudden (and long overdue) pickup in business for the motor oil industry
-inflation of 'help, my boxer is burning oil!' threads
Assuming this thing still uses oil for the motor; or is it all water?
On the right side bar.
As for all the complaining, I am not at all surprised. Afterall, we are BMW owners!
Wouldn't that be more fitting if the bike were actually a submarine?
Aside from the front fender/beak, which I hope someone comes up with a good cover for like the Adv models, I think it looks good. Reminds me a bit of the new Triumph. So much so that I wonder if designers are in bed together. It looks heavy though. Any specs on operating weight yet?
wasserboxer or waterboxer
I'm surprised there is no heated seat option. The Triumph explorer has the option. It shouldn't add any weight really. Oh well, not really a big deal. Maybe they thought it would be too candy ass for a GS.
Well, the MS is not a new model and given the number of multis vs. GS's out there (fyi there are more GS's sold in Italy than all Ducati's put together) it would be expected that there would be more complaints, but frankly my GS has been rock solid and has not been in the shop. I'm sure the new GS will have some teething problems, but I doubt they'll be anywhere near those of the multi which has been around for years. And actually the dynamic ESA on the GS is made by Sachs which has been making dynamic suspension for BMW autos for years, so it's much more proven than the dynamic Ohlins that Ducati went with and then ditched when they couldn't figure out how to fix it and stuck the owners with having to spend $3k to replace the whole thing.
I disagree that MS doesn't compete with GS.
If you take BMW Germany figures, for ex the length & height, BMW USA is not corresponding.
I trust much more BMW Germany (Technische daten) than BMW USA...

Well, this is the first side on picture I actually like. I want mine to look like that.
Those body braces must be a Touratech option to stop rider fatigue, I bet they deploy out when you engage cruise control.
Having the air intake at the top and the exhaust at the bottom must make it a lot easier to retrieve any items dropped down the air intake during service. I always drop stuff, so I think it's a great improvement.
