IMS Long Beach 2015

I'm at media day here at the IMS show. Just heard BMW and Yamaha but I'm most interested in Honda's Africa Twin and whatever KTM has to share later today.

A couple pics so far...

A bit odd how the engine sticks out on the right, huh? (above)02dfbc0a46776028483ebeda5f922946.jpg

I'll throw my scoot up against it! BMW lose its patent on the externally laced rims? 

 

Eric, PM sent. 

Is the engine sticking out how it's supposed to look? What did you think Eric?

I thought it looked odd, which is why I snapped a photo.  I'm told that was to balance the bike due to the drive being on the left side.  It didn't hit my knee, so I didn't sweat it.  I would think a cover of some kind might be warranted if you're going to do any serious off-roading with it but then again it's more of a Starbucks bike.

So you aren't buying the "Dakar" wanna be hype for the AF? The 1200 just like any other big street bike?
