8 mins riding like that & I’d need knee, neck and shoulder surgery.

Nice bike, though.

Wow... Nice Job copying all the good elements of the Triumph Bobber ��
Ich highly doubt that we will see this exact model on the road without some major changes to meet German regulations. Just look at the open cardan transmission...

The ergos seem similar to the Triumph with the foot controls coming back just a bit further to account for the engine.

I think it looks good, but I think we all know where they got most of their ideas.

I've been a huge BMW fan all my life so I like it. However, I doubt that we will see it on the road. Even if we did I have my Bobber.

To me, the bike is attractive in several ways but the motor seems disproportionately large. On a naked sport/muscle bike that could be a cool thing, but on a machine like this with classic lines it is more of a visual distraction.

I think this is as close to a Bobber that BMW came on standard production. It’s my BMW Phoenix.

I confess I've never been too keen on BMW's but that is one I would ride. The nicest 'BMW' I think I have ever seen.
