Unique, but dammit Jim, she's UGLY!! Besides, aren't 'motards supposed to be lightweight, fairly powerful, and ridiculously overbraked? This thing certainly can't be lightweight, especially with the boxer 1150 lump.

That is a very wierd lookin toy. It is a lightweight machine if you don't fill the gas tank all the way.

This BMW would have an advantage in Endurance Supermotard racing, it can go for 3 hours before refuelling

It's really ugly

Hopefully BMW will make a better job. There again, you can't count on Jerrys taste, they did build that silly C1 scooter.
