I may have a few people jump on me for saying this, but here it goes...

It is well known that BMW uses particular print schemes for particular production years. Well, while searching then net I came across a picture of what is said to be a 2008 Sports Boxer with a particular paint scheme.



http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/...163707-16.html

Now look at what is now being called the G450, notice the paint scheme.



http://www.motorcycledaily.com/24april07_bmw_g450.htm

Is this an indication that just maybe the G450 will be a 2008 model. Makes one think. NO.

P.S. I have to apologize to Uther, as he was the first person to post the same story I took credit for. I honestly did not recall seeing it before I posted. Note sure if this was a result of a merge or not. ;-)

Don't get me wrong I love seeing it everytime someone thinks they've found something new, but that pic has been floating around for 2 weeks now as part of a press release that's a tad on the 205 side.

Your thread will most likely be merged in shortly with the BMW 450 Threadfest/merge.

The paint scheme you refer to is BMW's racing colors, that's all. It's not an indication that it will be used on a particular year. And if this bike makes it into general production, I doubt it will produced in this color scheme.

Check out how far back into the frame the engine is pushed. Looks like, if you have big feet and put your heels on the pegs, your toes might be sticking out past the engine!

450

I understand they are serious about taking on the world enduro championship and the prototype is the first step.
Front sprocket is on the swing arm so no more chain adjustment - BMW engine don't think it's a Rotax.

Heard good things about the Xchallneg 650 too
