2007 launch for new BMW superbike!


BMW created a stir when they launched the radical K1 superbike in 1988. Twenty years on, can they do a repeat performance in 2007?

BMW are believed to be working on a new superbike for 2007. This bike will be powered by their 1200cc, air-cooled ‘Boxer’ engine, which could be making as much as 130 horsepower! BMW hope to compete against the Ducati 999 (which is also due to be replaced with a bigger-engined, more powerful machine) with this bike. The new super-BMW is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Cologne Motor Show in Germany.

BMW are also likely to be working on a big, fully automatic scooter, as well as an all-new cruiser. In 2007, the company is all set to go far more mainstream than they've ever been in the past. With their new 800 series motorcycles and HP versions of some of their existing bikes, BMW want to lure customers away from Japanese machines. Looks like there is no holding back the Germans this time!
