BMWs S1000xr Deisgner Bernd Scherer own XR bike

Apparently he was one of the key original designers and this his his own version of the XR

Its got some very interesting bespoke design touches  of which quite a few I would buy if they were available !

I like the exhaust he has put on and that's about it. The belly pan is a nice addition but looks a bit too big for me. Colour scheme, hhmmm not sure.

 :001: :001: I actually like the bellypan. But hate the Akra end can, its just to big.   :034: :034: just my opinion.

I think BMW did a pretty good job of selecting what to include and what to exclude. 

The only thing I'd change is the platypus nose, but even the designer kept that or couldn't find a way to change it...maybe it was his idea....

Needs more carbon fiber , wonder if he’s running stock gearing. Very nicely done.
