    Any ideas if this will be a real bike?

    I just found this image of a new boxer bike. I always fall for concept bikes that never come to fruition.

    BMW has already put out the PR on that model. I predict they will quickly sell every one they build.

    BMW Motorrad announces new boxer model. Multifaceted concept to mark 90th anniversary.

    The artwork was released with a BMW PressClub release during the EIMCA show at Milan. This was announcement that there would be an announcement about a new Boxer concept model celebrating BMW's 90th Anniversary.

    Visan started a thread discussing it. Is it the Lo Rider Concept or some variant - I don't know. No specs because we only have the announcement of the coming announcement. Stay tuned.

    Those will go quick, if the final version keeps this cafe racer profile. Hmmmm, I have to make room in the garage for one!...
