    I was kinda hoping for “4 new seats”.....plush, ultra plush, the “800 miler” and the “you never have to get off version.

    Thanks
    It will be interesting to see the final design of the F850RS.

    When is EICMA?

    The new bikes set to be released look great this year, though BMW is being tight-lipped about what they'll have--check out what is coming this year in our blog

    F 850 rs

    It is a chain drive! Saddlebags mount with electro magnets? COOL!
    I hope the wet weight is under 450 lbs.
    Stay tuned!

    It would be nice if they sold a S1000RS but I have a feeling the 2020 or 2021 XR will be very similar to the old XR but have the new engine.

    Think of it this way

    XR, ST and GT are synonyms of RS in the BMW language

    Electromagnets??? The 850GS has a 10 Ah battery and a 416 W alternator.... we'll see about that...
    And they want to lose weight? Not the way to get there; and this weight is likely high and to the rear.
    Have to wonder if the bags will actually stay in place when they're "typically over-loaded"...
