    I know the F800R is in a different market segment but this article about their S1000RR superbike may offer some insight into the current mode of thought at BMW Motorrad.

    Quote from VP of BMW Motorrad USA, Pieter de Waal:

    “We had a big reality check in the company,” said de Waal candidly. “Basically, BMW did things to be different, not necessarily because it works better. Now, if anything is done differently, it’s because it works better,” he said, referencing the new G450X dirtbike whose clutch is directly connected to the crankshaft to create an ultra-short engine with its cylinder inclined 30 degrees.

    Hmmm... I kinda dig it, but I wonder if that headlight is as "good" as its 1200GS cousin.

    It's vitally important to know the correct name for all parts of a vehicle so that you can curse them accurately when they break.

    Yeah, the jar on top and the cream paint gotta be changed. Otherwise, I like the looks of the bike; however, once you change the color and move the jar on the handlebars, then the bike does not look very distinctive from some other bikes like that.

    It kinda looks like a police bike.

    No. It's just got more street cred/poser value to have CF accoutrements on streetbikes au natural.

    On a racebike, the teams colors and sponsor logos are more important.
