Frans Verhoeven crashed 3 engines this year, the BMW engine is not made for long distance rallys !!!
not so in 2009 Dakar all 3 BMW 450's lasted well with no mechanical failure, 1 as unspported marathon class, also this year others made it with no issues, Franz's bike was not the only G450X here

to me is seems a package with a lot of potential, it looks a very light and agile rallye bike
