I agree about the KTM exhaust. Way too ugly and exposed.

As for the BMW.... is that the ABS sensor comb I see on the front wheel? If so then there's a matching one on the rear? A motard with ABS??????? I think somebody's engineering department missed a few memos about how motards are intended to be ridden.... But if they lost the big blackboard panels on the sides of the Bimmer and the crap behind them I think it would be a nice bike..... oh wait.... I see a gas cap on the side of the saddle again. So that means underseat tank... Hmmmmm... not sure what that'll do for the handling. Maybe good, maybe bad.

The Benelli looks sweet.

The BMW looks a little raked out. I doubt it will turn the way a rider familiar with supermoto would want to ride it. I doubt that's who it was intended for though. Nice competitor for the DRZ, but I doubt it has the power or handling to make a true enthusiast happy.

The KTM, well.... mama always said if you don't have anything nice to say, then..............

Weight down low, and it's only around 10l, so it's going to make the bike even lighter.

And the ABS goes on and off with a switch, the people have spoken....

We are BMW, we ask the questions and know the answers. Now be quiet and give us your wallet.

I'd guess that's der Starbucks cruiser of whats mostly a partshelf bike. Not meant for Motarding but made to look good on the Strausse.

No real objection though, I've decided the Motard should be next so the more fish in the pool the better. Maybe the Japanese will ramp up some hot ones, and maybe that Benelli will clear customs in 2121.
