I’m with Roy ok this; while I really rate the BMW boxer engine, etc I just can’t “like” this bike. Maybe it’s the headlight cowl that ruins the lines for me.
Anyway, nice concept - just not to my taste.

Agree, the first concept model is great, this one I don't like it either. Maybe it will have different options...….

My heart lies with things that look like older bikes but are actually modern tech. This is a bit gor-blimey-guv'nor for me (ask @Roy). Certainly impressive, and I'll bet it's a blast to ride.

To me, the thing that ruins the look is the big smooth wad of metal under the tank. I know it's the motor, but to me it looks like a chunk of Rubbermaid garbage can with cylinders sticking out the sides. I guess my eyes appreciate a more traditional-looking motor.

It’s a actually traditional motor design. Old school BMW.

The more I look at this bike, the more I like. The engine takes a bit of getting used to but jeez, it certainly has presence - those jutting cylinders look huge! The styling is nice and clean too.

Wouldn’t want my trouser leg getting caught in that shaft drive though!

I'd have to see it in person. I actually like the BMW motor look, and the jugs hanging out.

To be honest, if you were to put a Vtwin in it, at a glance it would look just like another HD.

Again, have to see it in person.

Oh, and that weird flashing bit of the video with the upside down frames, yah, I needed that seizure inducing moment on Friday morning.....
