Well, they've managed a couple wins but I wouldn't call that success, yet especially with their budget.

The water cooled GS looks interesting but I would give them a year to find all the issues the clutch and transmission are going to have before I bought one. BMW has a poor record with wet clutches and transmissions. The GS design looks like it has all sorts of interesting ways to go wrong when the end user has it.
