We showed you this weeks ago – but it’s worth putting it up again – here’s a spy shot of BMW’s top secret big cruiser which appeared on German website Motorrad – courtesy of snapper Alen Tomovic.
Motorrad has been saying for quite some time that there’s a big Cruiser coming from BMW – and the German’s have finally been proved right, with a spy shot of the new machine out on the road appearing on its website. There’s no official information from BMW just yet – but looking closely at the image, we can glean a few things about the new machine.
First off, BMW’s cruiser is equipped with a big air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine. No news on capacity, but chances are it’ll be a seriously big unit. Motorrad reckons it’ll have around 1800cc – which makes sense when you look at BMW’s recently introduced Boxer engine which was fitted to a custom board tracker in December last year.
It comes with a chunky rear and front wheels, a big fairing and a windscreen – and as a result the new Cruiser is fairly reminiscent of a big Harley or an Indian. But it’s not. It’s a BMW. And knowing BMW’s track record for stepping out of its comfort zone and coming up trumps, we’re very excited to see the new Cruiser in the flesh. And considering the bike looks close to complete – chances are we won’t have to wait too long.
