    I don't think so. It doesn't have the "GS" thing in it. :lol3

    Very nice. Will be interested to hear real world testing. Have to say, however, that the Xmax 300 actually appeals more to me at this point (based on specs only), mainly for the weight savings and the dealer support. Getting my R1200GS serviced was not for the faint of heart.

    Wonder what the maintenance schedule/costs are like. Primary reason I declined to go for a used c600 sport.

    I hear you. Intervals should be good but it looks like there's lots of plastic to remove.

    It is a BMW. If you have to ask you can't afford it.

    It took me 4 hours to get to the dealer. They have since gone bankrupt and a closer dealer has opened. I might have to go have a look once they get to Canada and it warms up in about 4 months.

    So 350cc and 425/450 lbs.
    No doubt more $ than the 300Nmax.
    I'd still say Yamaha is the winner for 2018.

    Pics of it looked smallish, until seeing a rider on-board. Good looking scoot!

    No price yet? Bet $$$

    I would guess the price will be close to $8,000. Perhaps $7,800? Who knows. The thing is you have to factor in all the options so I am sure it will be a lot more expensive than the base price.

    BMW over $12,000 CDN my guess. But the Canadian dollar is not worth much.

    As I agreed the same performance may be found elsewhere for less bucks thats not what BMW is about.
    They are well aware they are far more pricey than Japans offerings and they don’t care.

    Their market is well defined and thats who they pitch to. They know going in that they wont be the winner in number of units sold.
    Doing that would defeat their purpose.
