    BMWs 5 New Motorcycles @ Intermot 2006

    Today BMW introduced their new motorcycles to the press at the Intermot exhibition in Germany. Quite a surprise, since no-one was expecting the new G-series of motorcycles. Not often you see manufacturers able to hide their recent developments.

    Here are the official photos of the new motorcycles. Note the K1200 Sport is basically a naked K1200R like Tatoodles, with a bikini fairing. No belt drive on the 650's either.

    They are as follows:

    G-650 Xchallenge
    G-650 Xcountry
    G-650 Xmoto
    HP2 Megamoto
    K1200R Sport

    The G-Series boasts three models, which are all a variation on the enduro/supermoto theme.

    The G650 Xchallenge is the enduro version with longer travel suspension and 21-inch front wheel giving it real off-road potential.

    The Xmoto is the supermoto version designed to take on the likes of the KTM duke II with 17-inch allow wheels front and rear.

    And half way between the two is the Xcountry, a trial-styled city bike with a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear.

    All the G bikes are around 160kg, will make 53bhp

    The megamoto looks interesting, except for the asymmetrical headlight. Kinda ruins it.

    The G-650 Xmoto dosen't just take on, it almost duplicates it.

    I'm just here for the intelligent conversation.
    Looks like it's an HP3 for the next year.

    Cool new bikes, but I'm not diggin' the headlights either.
