  • New 2010-11 BMW 600cc Supersport

    So if you've got the latest AMCN i guess you've seen this VVVVVV

    And this VVVVV


    Now obviously the top photo is just a computer mock up...but if I worked for beemer....I'd draw it like that.....how good to the spy shots look?

    Stuff the s1000RR........deposit paid for the S600RR......in my pants!

    Better or worse that the thou?
    Front axle? Spank or spew?
    I got a fever.......and the only prescription is more cowbell!

    Hub centre = fail.
    It's a much better setup than forks in theory but apparently offers no feedback.
    It has been tried that many times and never taken off.

      Looks good, but you obviously lose half your braking with only 1 disc, and the existing disc looks a bit weedy. And the bodywork has been stolen from MV Augusta (especially the headlight).

      But of course this is a CGI mockup, if the production model looks anything like that I'll eat my own underpants.

        I'm curious how the weight of the front and rear arms are offset to balance the handling.

        Or does it just work.. ?

          if its anything like the s1000 then much want :O Not sure about the hub center thing, what are the benifits? or is it just technological wanking?

            Cant see the front end being any better, as others above mentioned.
            Would be cool to see another manufacturer in this class though.

              Oh well now that you ask, single sided front linkage suspension is all about centrifugal and centripetal forces, working with the gyroscopic pull of earth's gravitational pull of the orbit around the sun....

              I think it looks awesome.....maybe they found the dead smelly horse out in the beemer spare parts shed and thought they might try and flog it one more time to see if it comes back to life...

              Good point on the disc....I didn't think of that. Obviously doesn't matter at the back.

              Underpants? Fresh or soiled?

                As was mentioned previously the front brake looks pretty pathetic, would have to be a mean ass caliper to make up for it. Shame they didn't do a radial mounted disc to help a bit.

                  Looking at it more closely, the front disc is exactly the same size as the rear. I think the CGI artiste just got a bit lazy and did a bit of copy pasta of the rear end to the front.

                        Of course not Ben.
                        Us lowly everyday riders have absolutely no concept of how things work, and have no rights to question how things are built.
                        We aren't smart enough to question things and don't posses the mental aptitude to understand complex mechanical systems.
                        Seriously Ben, I love you to bits, top bloke, but fuck me if sometimes you don't come across as a condescending twat, especially about stuff like this.
                        There is a reason hub centre steering hasn't been adopted by every single motorcycle manufacturer and forks have.
                        Hub centre provides outstanding suspension geometry, but affords nil feedback to the rider due to it's setup.
                        Is it wrong as an active motorcyclist to question this?

                          Was more the one disc = half braking power thing, but if you want me to say it was in reply to you, then I can happily oblige ^_^

                            Hey, I never thought it was in reply to me, just that fact you seem to love hating on people who have what you percieve as a negative view on anything.
                            Single disk = double caliper.
                            Problem solved.

                              I just get tired of seeing almost every thread fill with people sniping, picking, and criticising everything that comes up.
                              Kinda makes me wonder why I come back.

                              I'd love to play tag all over the forum some more Jim, but I need my sleep.
                              I am going to a pub tomorrow night to socialise with my friends.
                              Enjoy your night scowling and foaming over a clattering keyboard
