There seems to be a single seat option as well....

If you look at the pics of the bike in Kenya in offroad kit there is only one seat that goes far back.
The rest of the pics show 2 seats.

:drif:

Will there be an adventure model?
not yet all other aircooled bmw models will remain as is for now.

So by this statement you mean they are continuing with the CAMHEAD air-cooled in the same factory and assembly line, really?

Looks like the first demo model is going to sell pretty cheap when he is done with it. :imaposer:

So we know that bmw doesnt handele water too good, so we add some more electronics instead of just fixing the airbox problem  :thumleft: . Of is dit nogsteeds die engine wat ek nie like nie. Enjoy dit! Ek soek nogsteeds n 1100 of 1150 met mods op.
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

That motor is now perfect to fit into light sporting aircraft.
Fit a reduction gear to the output shaft and you're A for away.

I like the the way the header pipes are tucked in and not so exposed any more .The throttle bodies are also more out of harms (and chins) way with the air intakes in a more sensible place where less dust from the front wheel is picked up ,not to mention the snorkel effect it has  :thumleft: The cast, instrument cluster sub frame is also a nice touch.The wind shield mounts look stronger and it looks like the wind shield adjuster can be excessed while riding ? I also like the look of the instrument cluster and the headlights look snazzy. All in all one can see that a lot of engineering and thought went into the new bike ,what else would you expect from the Germans . :ricky:
I think I`m sold  :biggrin:  :ricky:

Looks like the rear brake is not linked to the front as per the current model, else he would not be able to do those rolling burnouts  :thumleft:

...unless they jippo'ed it for display purposes  ;)

he probably had the off road plug fitted - disables just about everything and un-links brakes
