From MCN...


This is the first official image of the Sportboxer and the closest thing to a Superbike BMW has ever built. The 140bhp, 195kg (fully-fuelled) Sportboxer is leading BMWs assault on an all out, no compromises sports machine. This weekend it will be competing in one of the worlds toughest endurance races, the Le Mans 24-hour. On track the Sport Boxer will be up against Yamaha R1s, Suzuki GSX-R1000s and Honda Fireblades; no small feat for an air-cooled, twin-cylinder giving away the best part of 50bhp. The final production version of the Sport Boxer will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motorcycle Show.....

Wow! that looks sexy.

How do you fit the ally panniers and sheep skin seat cover though?? And do you rest your GSers belly on the tank or is there an aftermarket mount available?

Seriously - No compromise bikes always have an appeal :cool:

Well it just pitted in 21st place at 1h 20m for routine fuel - it has changed colour!! We have sat here looking for a black bike and it is in Motorrad colours :blast

Not bad really to say iots just in the 'open' class.

Not bad really to say iots just in the 'open' class. I may be mistaken but I have a feeling the open class is quite low in numbers so look our for a "B*W finish first in class" PR thing shortly.

It was in 36th when the first coverage finished but it has the advantage of fueling less than the top sprot bikes, they were saying it may save up to 25% of the stops made by the top teams.

Yep, it's in a class of 2 so should at least come 2nd:) Nice looking bit of kit - I want one already :thumb

First in class and 16th overall - not a bad result given the lack of power :thumb
