    I know.
    It still exists.
    It's not discontinued (as you stated).

    It's just not imported where you live.

    A couple of the magazines are already saying it will be in showrooms as early as THIS ('14) summer as an early '15 model!

    No chance. BMW preview new models at Garmisch, then the winter bike shows, ready for launches the following March.

    If it were only red....

    That is one sweet looking bike. Maybe a 19" front wheel would make it a bit more off road worthy?

    Why troll an obvious BMW thread if you're a hater? The Jap threads are down the hall. :deal

    Not trolling at all. I still like BM's, having owned about 15 BMW's in the last 20 yrs. So i have some experience with BMW reliability. Just stating that the 'new' BMW 1000F looks like a carbon copy of the Honda CB1000f & the Honda is just as good. Maybe less HP, but who needs a 150HP touring bike?
    I know the Honda wasn't sold in Yankee Land so I actually think the Beemer will sell well there.

    Looks like a 1050 tiger to me.

    That's a good thing and hopefully Triumph will update the 1050 and sell it over here. I'd own another modernized one in a heartbeat.

    The Tiger 1050 was a good formula for an upright, 95%-pavement sport-tourer. Hopefully, BMW's iteration will be lighter, a lot more powerful, have great accessories and electronics, be priced correctly, and not have the weird "swayback" profile of the Tiger.

    The whole key to this bike for me is the weight. Bring it in within 25-lbs of the S1000RR (sub 475 lbs wet) and I'm there. But if it balloons up to 525 or higher, no interest whatsoever. And BMW, please give us some fuel range. I'm not asking for 6+, just a solid gallon or so more than the S1000RR.

    I think next year could be a good year for the tall rounder class.

    The BM, a possible Triumph Tiger 1200 sport and new Versys 1000 and possibly a replacement for the TDM 900 from Yamaha.

    Good times.
