So they are indeed WP forks in 43mm, and both DE and international official BMW Motorrad pages are wrong, too.

One possible reason why they used those is that WP does not make a 45mm fork (that I am aware of) and their 43mm USD fork happens to share the same dimensions in the stanchions as the 45mm Zoke: 54mm diameter in the upper clamping area, and 57mm diameter in the lower. So they would still be able to use the same triple clamps.

Now the interesting question is if they are finally adjustable or at least have non-crimped cartridges, or if it's just a provider switch for the same cheap ass fork?
So the clamping diameter is the same and were used in a lot of KTM bikes. Interesting, and the wheels are turning. What model number are they?
