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.

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.
That model is the only BMW that came with a chrome valve cover therefor they are referred to as chrome heads. I'm sure you all needed to know this bit of trivia.:nerd:

BMW did a very similarly styled R5 homage in 2015, so probably not cribbing from the Bonneville Bobber. I can’t imagine it being a good idea for me to have 1800cc..😳. And the bike must be very heavy. But if someone offered to give me one I would not turn it down!

Personally I love those big F-ing cylinders sticking out not giving a ****.

I am a very big boxer twin fan, in case you couldn’t tell...>:)
From air cooled to liquid cooled, they just get better and better while still leaving lots to appreciate in the previous versions.

I'm just gonna say it: For the shear beauty of the bike overall, and using the boxer engine, I give it an A+ ! I love the looks, and I bet it's a beauty to ride.


For ergonomics, I give it a D . I can't see sitting on that bike for more than 30 minutes at a time. My legs ached looking at it.



For what it's worth, though I love the boxer engine being used, but it's the wrong engine for a cruiser. I rode a boxer engine for a day as a loner (R bike) and it was sweet! But the bike was configured for the engine and my legs didn't have an issue.

no room to stretch out. I wonder what the production cruiser will look like, and how they will get highway pegs to work, if at all?
