    Maybe BMW are splitting the launch for Europe and America, because according to Kevin Ash (UK journalist) he is heading to SA in January.

    I knew this bike was in the pipeline but only this week have seen pictures.

    then I saw a walk around on youtube. holy cow this thing is wild looking.

    the side shots do it no justice but man from the front or this angle. :huh

    I'll bite :D

    That is basically a "side shot."

    What is it that you're trying/wanting to say?

    You had said that the side shot did it no justice and then commented with a curious emote on what is basically a side shot.

    Yes, you say that it's "wild looking;" have you formed an opinion whether you like what you see or not yet?

    no that is basically a 3/4 shot.

    this is a side shot and you can't see the dynamics of the entire nose from the side.

    Has anyone seen pictures of the full bare naked frame with forks and telelever attached? The vid above shows the front and rear subframes attached to an engine case, but no forks or 'lever. All the other pictures hide the telelever with those cheeky radiator guards.
