I'm sure the Gixxer is faster...I have a 600 and my brother has the R1100S and the Suzuki is faster as long as you are in the power band. The BMW does have a lot of torque though. You should bet him!

The R1100S and the K1200S are not the same bike.

This BMW may not out perform the very best the Japanese has to offer... but it sure as shit is not slow.

I dunno...still havent seen a BMW bike that hasnt made me wanna throw some traveling bags on it and go touring. I honestly wouldnt mind seeing them come out with a cool ass dedicated sportbike in the 600-750 class. I mean, the M3 or even the M5 are two of the best cars in the world and they cant just make 1 bike. Eh...I can dream.

Never thought I'd say this but that is a really nice looking bike :dblthumb

But i reckon they need to lose the shaft drive, make it shorter ... and put some forks on it. Would be interesting to see the specs in terms of horsepower, wheelbase, weight etc.

That has to be one of the most ugly bikes I've ever seen. Not a real BMW fan though.
