Never been a big BMW fan but it's pretty cool... like a 2 cylinder Rune
I'm liking the vintage styling and color scheme, but 1 BMW is enough for my wallet haha!

I've seen some custom 1 offs built like that before, but this is a factory bike with a functional rear suspension shaft drive and fuel injection. I'll bet we see these on the streets soon.

Don't think it's injected..from what I saw in the interview.. they have to do the "pass specs"(mirrors, tag clamp on levers) and I think he said injection due to environmental stuff...
we had a "new" manufacture here at a local show last year.. their bikes were carborators. If memory serves me, they were able to do this due to the low displacement of the motor ... that BMW has the biggest "box" motor ever made..
"Yes, my hands and nails have grease stains. I ride vintage!"
On my R1150RT I quickly learned about how blipping the throttle gets a good rocking motion going. Can't imagine what 1800 cc of horizontally opposed twin would do.
Definitely nothing like the GL1800 I had or even the GL1100A.
That retro BMW certainly has some nice lines.
Um... That IS a twin.

If they're gonna do all that they might as well lift the seat a bit with springs and put a big ol back wheel on like those sickest of early motorcycles.
Anyone? I think it's about time, or maybe I've been watching too many eps of Jay Leno's garage.
