BMW announced yesterday that they were working with Honda and Yamaha to form something called the Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC) so brands could work together to standardize the intelligent systems they’re developing - much like what has happened with cars.

Rush 2SD to an oxygen tent then read all about it here.

Isn't it ironic that Mr Suzuki is the operating officer at Honda.

Last time they worked together till 1945, it did not turn out well for either.  Hope it goes better this time round
Thought so, tough behind a keyboard, but no balls.......

No need to rush me anywhere.......BMW, in this decision, displays wisdom.

We have seen recently how the Germans has to lie and cheat at vehicle development. :eek7:

And after '45 the rest of the world used the technology of these nations. Technology wise this joint venture is a brilliant idea (i.m.o)
