    I like it, plenty of styling cues that go way back in beemer history.
    But.... As someone wrote earlier, once you add all the shit for rego and compliance it could look a lot different.
    1.8 litre flat twin ......sounds like a good idea to me.

    I love it......if they actually bring it to market, and it looks that good, I’m getting one bar an adverse test ride.....

    Yes it would. I’d need to extend the shed to fit them all in though!

    Went into Wackers BMW to enquire about the R18.....they tell me there will likely be 3 versions, from the stripped down bobber as seen in this thread, along with two more touring style versions. 

    Deposits were being taken.....guesstimate of the Bobber price was around 40K. I left with my deposit in my pocket.

    BMW would be ill advised to market it at that price. It has some opposition in the segment and is not going to be a limited edition run. My personal guess would be a fair bit less retail.

    Agreed. I was very surprised. And disappointed. I’ve wanted a boxer for ages and this one seemed perfect. But whilst the price info is coming from a dealer, it’s only their guess....hope it’s way wrong.....not buying one at anything near 40K.

    The big problem BMW boxers have, and Guzzi's is that due to the engine configuration it is really difficult to put forward controls  on them.
    Who wants a laid back style bike, when your feet are sitting centimetres below your arse?. Unless you are a dwarf.

    You seem to be the only one that finds that a deal breaker
    At 193cm, it's a deal breaker for me.

    Really just the first minute or so. Other gems of wisdom further along if you are patient.

    I’ve been waiting patiently for one of these, was a concept they put out a couple of years back based on the Gaston rahier Dakar R80

    An old style basic R80 GS would be tempting.
