BMW Boxer Cup Replaced By Power Cup - In Europe

Jeez, I was getting all Boxer Cup Prepped to watch the new BMW's shunting each other around at Laguna Seca in July.

But noooooooo. Only in Europe do ve haff ze Cup.

The design looks a little forced in photos; I'm interested to see one in the flesh. One thing's for sure and that is that BMW has entered the power wars in a big way. I wouldn't expect the top end of that 160 crank horsepower to be useable on a naked bike.

At least the long wheelbase will give the rider a chance of keeping the front wheel in reasonable proximity to the ground.

Did they leave the rear footpeg hangers on or is that just the support for the exhaust can??

Here's a new twist: Power Cup Racing TWO-UP!!

After all, BMW has that "real-world" image; every Beemer has a decent back seat. I say bring it on. I think MR ALLCAPS would approve.
