I wonder if it has anything to do with the tires? i.e. street-oriented tires like those would have, I would imagine, softer sidewalls. Not offering an excuse for BMW, just wondering if that contributed.
Nope,...I was running Mitas E09 Dakars with Over 30psi pressure and they still bent. I never aired down before and now I run even higher pressure like 36 front/38 rear. It bounces around a little more but oh well..

I used my adjustable wrench to interum fix mine. Works so far...

Mine came from the dealer looking like this with the tube pinched in the wheel...
