Good point... Like it or not this bike will be seen on the streets and should not be disrespected...

I love everything about that bike except that particular color scheme. Metallic puke green? Come on!

I know lots of folks hat ethe headlights but it remonds me of what yiou might see on the front end of a bike in Japanese Manga. Love it!

I fcukin love the new BMW!!!! If I had the $14k to toss around, this would be my next track hoe!!!!
As far as the headlights.........I think they look badass. 90% of sportbike riders (and MH members) are too narrow minded to branch away from their particular brand of bike/style and that is the reason this bike won't outsell any other litre bike out there. With the power/weight ratio and then that price tag, why would anyone buy a litre bike other than this one?!?!?

totally agree. I think the bike is bad a looking. The only thing I don't like is the color. But I don't judge bikes by something silly as the color. I like it.

werd............I kinda like the color though. Don't get me wrong, the color is ugly, but I like that!!! Plus, I would make it my track hoe and Ralph would the paint up with stickers again and it wouldn't really matter!!!

I especially like it in black. One of their Ads show it at an angle, looking at the front left side, and it really does look bad*ss! The technical specs are amazing, and I believe BMW will everything it's got to make this bike a force to be reckoned with.

As far as Mark954's comment that this bike has "WAY MORE electronics" than is really needed... Wow, and I thought I was old school. The sportbikes of today would not be what they are had it not been for the ingenuity and engineering behind the advanced technologies developed since my old school days.

I like stickers. While the paint is ugly I would definetely ride that bike. I wonder how it " feels" compared to japaneese bikes?
