Re: motorcycle-usa LT development rumors
This is from the same Rag.
("Despite initially denying it, BMW has now admitted that they have the engines for the G650Xcountry made in China. This has enabled them to reduce the price of this model in the German dealers by 100 Euros. However, people are now asking if other models will be similarly outsourced, risking quality control issues, which might explain the rumor about cheap Boxer-engined bikes that is circulating. Apparently, the idea is to offer lower-spec machines as an entry level to the brand which has, up to now, been acknowledged as a premium one. (If this is true perhaps they should just by out Ural and stick a roundel on the tank!").
What a bummer.
