    I think that would be a good name. Someone suggested Waterhead but I think that is a reference to a birth defect.

    The urban dictionary defines it as : The stupid feeling you get the day after a night of drinking where you can't think straight.

    Until there is some history this may or may not be an accurate definition. YMMV

    Well, I did not check the dictionary, but the definition of a hexhead, or an airhead, has some different meanings also? Wethead is sweet and to the point in trying to differentiate between the different power plants. I have referred to a few people as an airhead? But, I did not think of them as being a fine motorcycle engine...............

    Waterhead is a literal translation of the German word "Wasserkopf", which is a colloquial expression for "hydrocephalus" or "hydrocephaly". "Wethead" would translate to "Na?kopf' and is not a word in German (unless you think of someone who has jushed washed his/her hair and has not gotten around to use a blow-dryer)
    But the terms "Airhead" and "Flying Brick" , for example, were never used in Germany either to describe the specific BMW models. These monikers are American/English inventions.
