WaterHeads likely. Although if they have even one major cooling problem early on they might as well be called WasserBombs.

Thumb R1200GS New Water Boxer Engine Specs

Here is a link to the Pelican Forum discussing the new water boxer based on an article from BMW MOTORCYCLE MAGAZINE

http://forums.pelicanparts.com/bmw-r...ct-design.html

This is a quote from the member "Dr Curve" about the new GS.
Sounds promising!!

"I forgot to mention that the first model year to be offered will be a 2013 GS and they have released the basic figures for it to be 125 HP at 7500 RPMs with 90 foot pounds of torque at 5500rpms. It has a three bearing crank shaft and (at least to me in looking at the pictures for a hour) four radially arranged valves per cylinder (I thought non radial at first, but now think they are like the HP2S). They are saying this first model will have a 100/75mm bore and stroke, 1178cc's, drive by wire throttle control, shaft drive on the left, single center 10mm plug, with 39-mm intake and 33-mm exhaust valves. Get ready guys.........these are going to be fun and some of us are already talking to dealers about the "first ones."

read that same article yesterday and was excited as well. I kinda wish they were producing a bit more horse power maybe closer to the multistrata numbers. I also thought the article said it could be a 2012 or probably a 2013 model year. Just splitting hairs i guess.

Oh boy......here we go......already whining about something that we have never seen, heard or ridden...........

Here are my whines...it doesn't resemble the old oilhead closely engough, it looks like it will be pretty noisy at cold start (whole engine is cast in 2 pieces), it will be too expensive and made in China? Oh no!

All I wanna know is.....what kind of oil does it use, synthetic or non-synthetic?

Since it's water cooled, I think it will pull to the right.

still burning oil in 2013?

Will this "new'' design also require 20,000 break in & then maybe it will STOP using oil?

There was an out cry about the KLR650 08 using oil & no one really cares about something that cost 3 & 4 times (BMW) as much burning the same amount of oil for 20,000 miles.

NO, I will not sell my GS. I like deseil motorcycles from Germany.
