For months now, we’ve seen spy shots and other gossip hinting at a new BMW sport tourer. Now, renderings filed for design protection in Brazil seem to indicate the bike is indeed coming, even if it’s taking its time.
Motorcycle.com found these shots filed away in South America, and they jive with what we’ve been seeing ever since the 9cento concept first appeared last year. BMW is taking its new 850 parallel twin engine and putting it into a sport tourer. Logical, really, and something we’ve expected ever since we first saw the F850 GS. Frankly, we expected this bike on last fall’s show circuit. We’d be shocked if it didn’t show up at EICMA this year, with availability next spring.
