    To me, no scrambler is complete without high pipes... and the front tire is too fat; it looks like a Yamaha PW.

    My Honda 90 and 305 Scrambler had high pipes...the ground clearance however sucked Look at those now and chuckle

    Looks like a flattrack dirt thrower to me...I still like it....even though it's NOT a BMW by old school standards....

    Just kiddin Y'all!!! And you know who you are!

    I think the camera lens has caused the shot to be fore-shortened. That's why the tire is out of proportion compared to the bike.

    Len, compare the rubber to the wheel diameter, or the fork legs. It looks like a reversed rear tire on a 17" rim; where a proper 100/90-19 ought to be.

    +1 on the wheels and tires! Nice to see some meat on the front!

    It's not a photo angle at all...check out the short video...in German however!

    Based on the new 800R model. Nice tank angles like the K12R lines ...for those of us that like that kind of stuff anyways!
