Not bad, but why the belt if thy are the big boys on shaft's? is it the size of the motor?

my first impression is - nice!

but upon closer inspection one starts to see telltale signs of photoshop:
. the bashplate doesnt cast a shadow/reflection onto the exhaust header.
. the bashplate doesnt serve a purpose as it doesnt go underneith the bike at all, and who would make an offroader with header running underneith? one hard nock or bump and it is clamped shut and the motor dies.
. the yellow painted section on the side panel of the tank doesnt reflect light.
. the front light looks like a drawn picture if you zoom in.
. the front rim has a light source reflecting off it that the rest of the bike doesnt have.
. the bottom fork clamp, fork, and sliders share a vanishing point much lower than that of the rest of the bike (looking at a bike at a downwards angle like this, the furthest slider would be higher than the nearest one, and the fork clamp would run diagonally upwards not downwards as shown  - this is the biggest give away.


so there you have it - - - - - FAKE

Are you kidding? It screams photoshop from my screen

and it looks crap too - I am certain the actual bike will look nothing like this just like the actual HP2 turned out nothing like this:

There is no way that a belt drive will be designed for a GS, ask any BMW engineer. The belt will not last a 1000km's (Except if it has a dust tight cover) Definately Photoshop. Hope BMW comes with a good design, instead of a modified F800S design!!

I do like the design.



It looks like a f650 "rear ended" a R1200.
I like it, but would be worried about the belt offroad!!!
