Any news on BMW's dual spark boxers from europe? Accordingly to a recent dealer report, all U.S. 2004 boxer motors will be dual spark and have enhanced performance.

Captain, I remember reading somwhere that the new dual spark engines would not make any more power than the single plug motors. They would however be cleaner running. VWW

My dealer told me that hp and torque will be the same as current models. Reduced emissions and better throttle response are the official answers given for the change to twin sparks. Dealers are NOT to mention that twin spark engines should finally be free of surging. (That would be admitting that surging is a problem. "Officially" surging doesn't exist.)

We certainly know BMW could not be hiding any problem with any of their motorcycles. Only the dastardly Harley-Davidson Corp. is capable of shenanigans of this magnitude.

Remember also that any problems that Hondas have aren't really problems, since they will be promptly recalled when they can no longer be ignored. We should all write letters to Honda thanking them for being forced to recall their defective products.
