    I'm surprised the HP and Torque on the 2020 S1000XR is the same as the 2019.
    I wonder if that's correct?

    Another video of the 4 new bikes.
    The F900XR and R has bags like the R1200RS/R but the mount looks different. I see they also changed the bag mount on the S1000XR.
    The F900XR/R bikes have two different bag options. One looks like a semi rigid bag.

    Did the 2018 F850 have twin counter balancers?

    Some pretty neat stuff. Have to hand it to BMW for some nice designs there.

    I don't buy into the "experience driven brand" baloney. But I'm sure that has more to do with expensive marketing gurus than engineering.

    These new +/-900cc parallel twins... Any word on whether these are a Lorcim engines built in China like the 850cc used in the F750/850GS models?

    This is 21 pounds less than the F850GS. Both have a 4 gallon tank.

    You can probably bet on one thing with BMW. If the crankshaft is longitudinal (front-back) like a boxer you will find a shaft drive. If the crankshaft is transverse (side to side) you will find a chain or a belt. Those are the cost effective ways to connect the transmission to the wheel, to the tire, to the pavement.
