Sigh, now there are about 201 PTWs that are on my wish list. If I only was younger and had more money.

After watching that video, I still know almost nothing about the bike. Lots of hand-waving, no technical details at all.

That's the arrogance of BMW for ya.

Looks a bit too much like a Barcalounger for my taste.

Well now THERE'S a mighty good reason to go to the Motorcycle Show in January!

My 84beemer lasted 16 years, over 160k miles (because the odometer died at that point) and the only downside was that it ATE mufflers every 2/3 years. But I'm sure they have that kink worked out by now.

As soon as BMW can match Yamaha’s Manufacturers Championships in Moto GP, then they might be considered – until then, the Morphous will be the ride.

In as far as the video is concerned; we all heard a lot that told us nothing.

Cool looking, with neat features, but the 3 biggest questions come to my mind, with no answers....
how big is the engine?
how much does it weigh?
how much will it cost?

The video said "horsepower and torque in the top of it's class" so I'd imagine it would be in the maxi-scooter 400-650cc neighborhood.

As for price, I'm saying $10,000 range

The rear view video feature is huge. Something we all need.

I agree Sandy, now I have to go and see it with my own eyes!!! :o
I like the cameras showing you what is happening behind the scooter, and replacing the rear view mirrors, as well as the blue tires... AWESOME!!! :!:

I just want to see who's coming up behind me, and how fast they're coming up behind me.

I dunno, it reminds me of how NASA came up with a million-dollar pen with compressed nitrogen to write in space, and the Russians just used a pencil.
