Interesting new news on the BMW K1000 superbike
So, rumors of this bike have been around for a while. Just ran across this. Very impressive bike. 190Bhp?! only 190Kg wow!!

BMW also took ownership of huskavarnia, prooving its interest in many types of motocycle racing

I think all of the K bike crowd is anxiously looking at the next best thing in K bikes. I sure enjoy my flying brick, but could be persuaded to make changes in my garage if they come out with something truly improved that is reasonably affordable. I'm just not so big on thie idea that this sort of bike will be in excess of $20K on the street.

More information than you probably wanted to know about at http://www.i-bmw.com/showthread.php?t=9541

It must be a great bike. The test rider is wearing yellow leathers.
