Now we just need a "when."

I'm in. Inline 6 is the sweetest, vibe-free motor.

Even when you subtract BMW's over-rated HP and torque figures, this will still be one fine motor.

K1300GT for sale!

I'm only in if it's the concept bike they built. I don't need an uber-tourer.

Anyone know how to put an "umlaut" on the "u" in "uber"?

A few crayon drawings are a preview? Next thing we know someone will be hawking electric bikes here with less than 30 mile ranges as "real bikes".

I shudder to consider the maintenance costs on a bike with an "adaptive" headlight.

Tucker had adaptive headlights on cars in the late 40's. Bet the cost of the servos are cheap in reality. It changes pitch and angle based on lean angle instead of being mechanical. Pretty cool.

I'm talking about what BMW is going to charge owners to maintain it. You can bet it will be a lot. A major service on a BMW LT costs in the range of $2K now at a dealer.
