Thankfully the motors are based off the well proven G650GS bikes, but tweaked up a bit for more power. But yeah, how they do in the long haul is still to be seen.
Exactly. Jury still out but I predict it will be a BETTER motor than previous Berlin built F650 motors ... which had lots of problems. BMW have a lot riding on this to screw it up. Loncin is making motors for ALL their singles now. They will be good. Very good, IMHO.

I still believe the Terra may be out of the OP's price range ... it starts at $7000 ... but as we all know ... gets more expensive as it heads towards the door. Add some farkles? $$$ Cha Ching!
