    I don't have a clue what BMW will do - the US is their biggest market, my guess is they'll be willing to accept smaller profit margins to sell the bike. They don't have a lot of options, raise the...

    From what I've read it's the 850 motor with 14 less HP. Why they call it a 650 is beyond me, must be some kind of half-assed marketing ploy.
