Interesting, but for some reason the 350 are not imported into the US, the UK or Europe.

I'm pleased to see the home market is still doing well, though I have to ask why the factory wants to cover so much of their bikes in that awful black powder coating.

Is that lump in the head pipe the catilist?

WTF?

Looks that way to me.  I don't know about BS6, but Euro 5 requires two different catalysts in the exhaust system. So there would be one in the head pipe and the standard one in the muffler.

I find it interesting that some of the bikes have the bulge in the exhaust pipe and some do not.  And I sure wouldn't want to clean the spokes on those new wheels with the million spokes.  I guess those wheels are for supporting the entire family when the bikes are fully loaded. Should do the job. ;)

There were some pictures of a prototype Bullet with the new engine which had its second cat box under the swinging arm pivot and a heat shield covering the pipe bends. Too expensive to produce, I suspect.

All those spokes appear to be fastened to the "outside" of the rim.   Does that mean tubeless tires?   Not that we could buy one here in the US!

The only wheels with spokes looked completely conventional. The rest are clearly cast. I hope cast wheels will become available for the 650s.

I do not think they are talking about the actual spoked tubed rims. I suspect what they are calling "spoked" is the cast (probably tubeless) fake spokes you see at 1:26 in the video.

CAST "SPOKED" WHEELS.  I was referring to the red one in the video with the 48 number plate and the black one behind it.

Yep. What most people call spoked are what the automotive world calls wire wheels. I have never seen a cast wheel that wasn't tubeless. It looks like Harley's new adventure bike will have tubeless (wire) spoked wheels like a BMW.

My daughter's 1981 BMW R65LS wheels are cast and appear to be airtight but require tubes and a tube-type tire for some reason.  Perhaps due to their interior design.   ???

Probably issues like this:



also see this https://bmwmotorcycletech.info/section6.htm which goes in to some detail on the lack of safety rims on early BMW cast wheels.

Are the 350s not sold in the UK?
Anyone got any tips on getting a kit for the 350, like the Hitchcocks version for the 500cc?
