The new BMW diet.
Basically it's eat all you want and still make weight.

114 kg is 251 lbs. I really don't think that this BMW weights the same as a 525.

114kg = 251lbs not bad if its a 6 speed, fuel injected bike with OEM muffler that can shave another 5-10lbs with the aftermarket and maybe find another 2-3 hp. Was also hoping for a Vtwin 450 like the Aprillia, maybe down the road.

I agree with Hair, there is no way that this weighs in at 251#. Looks good though! I hope that they have really gone serious and addressed some of the issues like the air filter. If they did and can hold some kind of price point, it will be a hit.

Ya right...

I REALLY like the supermoto version. Could be an eventual replacement for my R6 when my body tells me I just can't ride repli-racers anymore. Or at least when I start listening.

So, TT was able to do this 5 years ago, using bolt-ons. Your right, there is no way it could be done now.

Chill out dude... drop your ass on one when it shows up and make your call then. Unlike alot of bikes out there, when it hits the dealers floor you can take it for a spin to your local truck scale and declare loudly "I was right! It weighs 260 pounds with less then a gallon of gas!"

I just read the Enduro is 156 kg = 343 lbs.

This sounds more like it. Not great, but not too bad either.

Knowing BMW it can certainly be trimmed down by dumping a few parts (muffler etc...).

Scrambler seat looks comfy, the others dont look too bad either.
I like the underseat gas idea, pretty clean.
Although if you want a bigger tank your options will be limited.

I hate BMW. Just when I thought I could be content with my Dakar a few more years they pull this crap.

No axe to grind. I am on board with everyone here. The more bikes the better. But if you are going to list specs then try to get them correct.
