It’s a bit of a silly-season in the new bike world at the moment and with all the spy shots and teaser videos leaking out, it’s easy to miss a big future bike – but Motorrad in Germany have set their sites on this beauty – the GS 800 X.

It’s an uprated version of the current GS 800 but made more hardcore with better suspensionm a new face, more narrow bodywork and seat and a Dakar-esque look.

We don’t know anything else about this bike, but if Motorrad is interested in this, and they’re putting it on their cover then there’s probably something in this one. The chaps at the magazine have the best insiders at BMW, after all.
