BMW Lo Rider

Just saw pics for the first time today and I love it.

I really want to know more about the motor. This could be a very fun bike to ride and it certainly is unique. I like where BMW is going

Looks like a cross between a harley dirt tracker and an industrial air conditioning unit.

The headlight, wheels and bobber seat don't gel to me.

Good try, but needs work.

Just IMO.

Here's a partially completed custom bike that looks awesome

'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda

Thats the interesting part, BMW is going to have several headlights, seats and exhaust systems and you get to choose what you like the most. "Factory Custom" bikes

Is this going to be one of those "factory custom" types of deals where the dealer stocks 4-5 of a few variants, and that's it?

i'm really diggin' it too. looks old school with the luxury of modern components. it appears in the drawing that ohlins front and back, wondering if that is standard. what kind of brakes also?

BMW Lo Rider

Just two weeks ago I saw a stripped down version of a K1100RS that reminds me of the bike in the picture up on Ortega Hwy here in SoCal. All of the plastic was removed from the bike. It had a large regular shaped bicycle seat. The gas tank was coated with the stuff you make bedliners out of. Very unusual looking bike for sure.
