R18 Concept Bike

I'm not a fan of bobbers, but BMW is onto something here. This is a pretty awesome looking bike.

Re: R18 Concept Bike

Probably just being the weird guy again but I like the thing. A touring version would be, for me, worth checking out. I love the R247/249 look of the engine. Less impressed by the, apparently, Peterbilt like wheelbase.

Well, to be Frank,

That wheel base and fork angle sure makes it a cruiser. Hub caps for valve covers. Twenty-six inch seat height. Plenty of torque. Bet it runs about 80 Hp. Only down side I see is the tube type wheels. I hope they are sealed. Production version out late next year.

I change your tires $40, you buy them on the web.

Personally I love the front view. Those huge jugs hanging out in the wind look awesome.
