If BMW licensed set, then it had to be telelever front and paralever rear suspensions for authenticity :) Cardan shaft isnt on the left side of bike by the way. 

but it would be very difficult to "squeeze" this one inside, but let LEGO surprise us

they will make one with a spring inside like the new pneumatic pump if it has hidden suspension!

It make sense from financial point of view - one small shock absorber + several beams is cheaper that two bigger shock absorbers and when you calculate millions?? of sets produced, there is a lot of savings. It could be reason that LEGO went for BMW licence because of front suspension solution?:sceptic:

The shock absorber could be easily fitted inside the Gastank area, so telelever-kind of solution is possible. I hope they did it, + cardan driveshaft. If so, than instant buy for me.

 I like the plane (and all models), it looks cool, and be honest: not the visually "small" wings are the cause, that this thing will not fly. :tongue:

As the wings of the plane seems to be really odd, can it potentially have a variable sweep wing? I think it's fully retracted on the main picture, and the black section visible on the side could slide out to form a proper triangular shape with the back section when extended. That would be a cool function to control via PF :)

a Telelever is a concept for front suspension of a Motorbike. It was developed by BMW. 

A carden driveshaft is a commonly used to transfer power (torque and rotations) from one place to the over. It uses a joints similar to lego technic u-joints. For further reading I recommend the wikipedia article.

That is possible a lot.

I think there will be four motorized functions-Undercarriage, Cockpit, adjustable wings and VTOL.

Non motorized-Controls by joystick in cockpit and ejection seat.

I don't read this for a couple weeks, then come back to pictures? :grin: Everything is pretty much an instant buy for me, except maybe the boat, depending on the price.  An A model transport truck with trailer included?  YES PLEASE!

It's a bit disappointing that the BMW doesn't appear to have the new printed disc brakes from the Caterham Super 7; maybe there's still time to change that, because I think it would really add a lot to the looks. Maybe there's a functional need for the wedge-belt wheels in the B-model, though.

Most of those sets look a bit kiddish and functionless, but I do really like the BMW motorcycle, and the plane isn't bad.  The plane does seem a bit dissproportional and would've benefited from a set of canards, but I am a sucker for aviation related sets, so it's always nice to see another.

Can anyone estimate the parts count for the BMW motorbike ... I'd say around 650-700 ... is that realistic?
