With the new engine this bike is even better than before.Add a few extras and you have a great do pretty much anything ride.It also has shaft drive and available with every option offered from BMW.It may be the best value of all the Beemer's.

Not that BMW would do it at this point, but bringing back the cruiser with the current motor should would be interesting. The roadster is a nice looking bike, however.

I like the wire-spoked version better. It looks more... authentic.

When is the world going to stop giving BMW a pass on the decrepit "Boxer Twin" engine design and stop buying those pieces of crap? They are slow, low powered, have terrible torque effect, and stick their heads in the pavement when you take a corner hard. They're crap, nothing but crap.
