    R18 section name?

    So, what will the forum section for the R18 be named? Big head?

    My dealer told me it won't be until next year. We have plenty of time to settle on a section name but I'm partial to Fathead, too.

    The bike will be "revealed" on Friday...

    on FACEBOOK (sorry OmegaMan)

    Of course, the post was made last week... the reveal is this Friday, April 3rd.

    What a concept. Notice that if you put the seat far enough back from the engine you can imitate forward foot controls. Those pegs are not beneath any part of the seat.

    Seems like smart marketing would be a piece of this “available in the future” bike would be cross posted by BMW on the BMW MOA forum.......before KTM’s take over

    BMW is efficient with their ad spend... they know that are not going to buy this bike.

    Plus someone is just *bound* to bitch at them for spamming!

    The bike was supposed to be intro'd at the Handbuilt show, which was to be this weekend in Austin, in conjunction with MotoGP and MotoAmerica...
