Watercooled, electronic suspension, traction control and ABS? Bring it on, make it hard for me to decide between Multistrada or now the Multistrudle.

I read the line under the picture:

"the switch to liquid cooling may also alienate some of BMW's core customers."

where have I heard that before?

Capable of anything from trips to Alaska to the morning commute make it look pretty bad ass to me.

Probably takes up the garage space of two ulys.....

With the sudden onset of competition, they're going to have to be mighty careful with the price point.

Uh, yeah. You're in the Uly department.

I've always liked the utilitarian look of the GS's, and adventure bikes in general, but that thing does
Look a bit out of control. Hopefully it's more of the urban camo to hide its true prototype nature.
