Haha... that box cost me $662 (very expensive for BMW box) :(

Yes, everything is original. It was design in this way, so that the seat can be raise-up.

I used to the noise, i think my VFR 1200 is more noisier but it cover-up by wind noise when travel 70km above. This scooter has the same noise output infront as TMAX.

Guess no choice then .. I will have to endure the noise then.

Now can only hope that it is super comfort ... so comfort that I can forget about the stupid engine noise.

Dont mind a SW engine with a BMW casing with Honda/Yamaha logo .. hahaha ...

Morimoto Bi-Xenon Lights Conversion

 

News extract from webbikeworld....

 

This time, A.Z. ripped out the stock BMW headlights and replaced them with a pair of Morimoto Bi-Xenon lights! How cool is that?!

 

I don't have any other information but I've asked A.Z. to let us know more. In the meantime, here are some pics. And if you want to try it yourself (I have no idea how!), here are some Morimoto Bi-Xenon Lights you can buy...but until I find out more, you're on your own!

There is a cheaper way to do it. BM 3 series bi xenon lights. German has done it.

 

I wouldn't try it since it has something to do with can bus.

New Owner Report.

 

I bought the bike without test riding the showroom piece, so i thought i could share some genuine personal comments about the scooter here.

 

 

Fuel consumption.

 

Collected my GT 3 days ago. Travelled for 367km so far on first full tank until reserve light on. And I pump another 11.25 L into it today. I have not care too much of the so-called recommended "run in" by BMW. So my wacky style of riding average speed of 110-130km/h can get the 367km milleage which I think it is rather good for a bike on a small 16L tank.

 

Riding & Handling

 

My house to my office is quite far and I have to travel by ECP to AYE every morning, so you know hows the traffic. I have no problem squeezing through all inconsiderate cars that leave only a small channel for me to sandwich through. And I have not even hit the bike's mirror with any cars' side mirror yet. My average squeezing speed is min. 80km/h.

 

I somehow feel that the bike is very fond in high speed cornering, everytime I get nears to the corner, the bike will just prep for the best lean angle for the fastest speed to pass through that corner, which makes me a very happy rider.

 

Bike is rather heavy when stationary, guess i will not even try to push it when the engine stop.

 

Btw, the throttle is very responsive and the pick up is instant.

 

Wind & noise protection

 

Wind and noise protection is good only the windshield is raise by 50% up. I will not recomend to ride it without raising the shield. Rain will not wet your trouses while you are on the move, hands are dry too during raining.

 

Others

 

The 2 front plastic compartment is somehow filmsy, although they serve the purpose well and waterproof. The LED really look very cool and the only one you have on the road and it attracts envy looks from car owners and other bike owners.

 

That is all my comments about the scooter so far, but I am really surprise that a 2 cylinders engine didnt produce that kind of vibraation I expect it will. I cant really feel the vibration comparing to the Tmax I rode before that I still can feel vibration although it is well supressed.

 

My recommendation to buy this scooter is 8/ 10, exemptional value for a BMW badge scooter comparing to other japs marque.
