Worthy of a test ride for sure. If just for the fun of it alone. I still have an itch after testing the Tuono last year. I will say that I do love the inline 4 screamer on the s1k and the longer into ownership I go, the more I am convinced I bought the right bike for me.

 :0461: me too especially the part about the longer I have my bike the more I like it.

Both of those bikes will likely priced far outside of the rest of the market, IMO.

Light reminds me of Bender from Futurama...



and 240kg is too heavy for me on a roadbike nowadays, no matter the power.

The only positive I take from it and the other newer supernakeds is that it may help "push" BMW into making the "R" replacement with at least 180+BHP...

Looks like the V4 Street starts at £20k, the Kwak is tbc but I can’t see it south of £14/15k

I can't be the only one that thinks that thing was fattened up for the slaughter beaten with a ugly stick.

If pricing on the H2/H2SX are anything to go by, I bet the Kwak will be more like £18-20.

All of the H2 lineup look like they were designed by a blind man being told what to sketch by a psychopath.

Uk dealer update - ‘preorder now & expect to take delivery February 2020 with a price circa £15400’

It comes with a lot of electronics but not semi active suspension - I’d guess a premium version might come along at say £17k with electronic suspension and extra bling 

Out of my price range either way !
