I see the boxer having three big disadvantages. Width, port shape and a very long valve train times two not to mention all the trouble BMW has gone to to get a handle on crank case pressure.
Probably why they didn't ask you to engineer it!! That was meant as a small poke, not trying to piss off anyone.

Give it a couple of years in the wild, buy the third revision and I bet it'll be a great bike.........if not the other manufactures are catching up!! I'm sure they'll be a lot of cool bikes to choose from if you don't like the wet-boxer.
