I read that the new BMW will be competitively priced with the Japanese liter bikes (within $1000). Anybody have the inside scoop if this is true? With Ohlins and Brembos all around for that price

Dang, wouldn't that be something!

Regarding the test times, I am really pleased with Ben Spies! I was optimistic, but wasn't completely sure he could pull it off! Even his p-8 on day two is only .8 off Fabrizio! And what, Fabrizio is in his 2nd year on the 1098? Third year with Ducati? That sound right?

Cycle World reported this an issue or two ago. They also mentioned that China (I think it was China, but if not, it was an Asian country nearby) is onboard with fabrication and assembly of motor components (and probably more). That's a bummer since I'm a bit of a purist in that I like my bikes designed and built in Germany, Austria, Italy, Japan and New Zealand. Sourcing parts is okay as long as the parts are top shelf. Still, I believe Germany is just the latest to jump abord the "Let's create some sound engineering and have someone else produce it for us for cheap" bandwagon.
