New BMW Adventure Bike Based on BMW S1000R Spied
Apparently not to be outdone by KTM, BMW is reportedly developing a “sportier” adventure bike based on their S1000R naked bike. Details are still fairly slim, but a spy photo has been posted on Motorcyclist Online. Looking more like s street bike than an “adventure” bike, the spy photo shows a 17″ front wheel a short screen and symmetrical headlights. Attached to the rear is a GS like subframe.
So here we have an apparent contender to the Ducati Multistrada. Depending on your definition of an “adventure bike” this machine might put BMW back into the high performance adventure game. For more info click HERE:
