Rudy Liyanto says:

I always like bmw machine , body shape etc. but never a fan of its exhaust pipe. Too fat.

Firestarter says:

You can easily make metal be strong in one direction and flex in another. Take a fucking engineering course.

Buildings are designed with beams that are incredibly strong, yet flex to handle vibration.

You make it tall and skinny and it’ll have exceptional flex resistance for the suspension yet allow plenty of flex in the direction you desire.

171 kg wet (376 lbs) , 215 hp , put it this way if it was a 1363 kg ( 3000 lb) car it would need to have 1715 hp to have the same power to weight ratio .

Seems to be stuttering a lot around the corners doesn’t it? . . . Doubt that an Audi would have done that. 😛

The audible traction control sounds like something from star wars, so Good!

Ronan Rogers says:

The headstock of my S1000rr metal frame snapped just from some dickhead who knocked it off its stand when it was parked in front of my house…needless to say he did a runner before i got there. Cost an absolute fortune to fix, covered by insurance. Otherwise a brilliant bike.

cr8ive says:

Great,   if its not hand made and they can mass produce them . . .they should be cheap then . . . . . . . . NOT!!

Jimmy Neutron says:

John Keckley says:

Oh, audible traction control. I thought it had an ignition problem.


BMW have so much technology available to them. Would be amazing if they make a prototype MotoGP bike
