Sounds like it might be able to keep up with my 1989 airhead!

I want to see it, after rideing in-line4's , I tried being a Beemer pilot,[1150RS ], after rideing a year, although I got used to the different weight and balance, it just wasn't what I wanted, went to a 2000 X11 Honda,[lovin' life]. I'd be interested in this bike, when you [MO]get the info on the bike, break down the tech on the bike,[as well as the test ride], and I'm sure you could persuade BMW to make a sport version , with ABS and an anti-dive front end that is under 500lbs wet,[don't forget the half-fairing], with at least 85lbs torque

Could work for me. First BMW was a first-year K100RS, fairly competitive in the day against the Japanese competition, and an excellent all-round machine (for the day).



Don't like the boxers, had an R11, not enough power, too much vibration and surging.



I'd just have to get over my issues with weak reliability and poor, expensive service.

Go to www.motonline.com for pretty good, fairing off shots. You might have to register on this FREE website to see the details though.

Crappy site! When I learn to read Spanish I MIGHT be able to log on. I thought that I filled in all the fields correctly, and I stillv could NOT see any more pics. They showed one thumbnail though. Pretty freaky looking. Nice KTM sportbike too!

A German colleague of mine showed me pics of the new BMW sportbike in a German magazine, I believe it was Motorrad. Looks neat that 's for sure. But, like all BMW's, they will be overpriced, overweight, underpowered....

There are a few more pictures of the RC8 on the KTM website.

We,, there's your problem - it's not Spanish, it's Italian. Go back and try again.
