Good grief... $26k? No thanks.

Not bad. I can buy a Hayabusa and a ZX-14 plus have enough gas money to run both for 3 years for the cost of one 'high-performance' BMW. Nice.

Maybe a little on the spendy side........

Cycle World referred to the BMW effort at Daytona this year as "bringing a triplane to a Top-Gun competition." And you Beemerphiles reaching for the keyboard to say "they placed 5th and 6th," skip it. LR could place in that range on his Knucklehead if it didn't break and he didn't crash. I think the whole Daytona effort was a way to sell these HP2 ridiculously overpriced technology throwbacks.

Uh, yeah, good luck with that BMW... Does it come with bags for that price?

Plus, the Knuck would look bytchin' while it was circling Daytona!

They have a discount on the bags option. Only 3 grand for the 'high performance' ones. That doesn't include the mounts though, which will run you another $1500, and of course, they need to be installed at an Official Authorized BMW dealer for the discounted price of $2000 bucks. So for a mere $6500, you have a set of BMW bags. Nice.

It might even win, as all the other bikes crashed out on the oil slicks it left in it's wake!
