The bigger question to me is if the Terra/Strada are actually money makers or only good sellers partially due to their pricing.

Assuming they can source the numerous BMW parts bin components.
Are they currently priced at a realistic and profitable level or priced to get them into the market?

Why was the X-Challenge a $9000 bike in 2007?
Why are the similar yet long in the tooth (design long paid for) 650 GS's $7900 and Sertao $8700
The price difference between the GS/Sertao even questions if the basic GS is a loser or break even bike to hook new customers.
