Yes... there is a HUGE market for a 15K race bred 600 V4... BMW should noteIs there a market for a $15K 600?
The last 600 I4 to tackle the Japanese strong hold was the Triumph...If it does get to market:
1- It will be an In Line 4, BMW wants to win races. BMW does not want to satisfy a small niche market. BMW wants to sell a significant number of bikes and compete head to head with the best in class, not create a second class V4.
2- It will be a tough sell against the established brands at anything too much above the current market price point. It will also be harder to be significantly better than the current Japanese offerings. Triumph sets itself apart with the I3 and it looks like MV is doing the same but targeting a different market demographic.
Because whoever came up with the concept had this in mind:Why is a single sided hub impressive if you're not an endurance racer?

Speedzilla's poll... people want Vees over the status quo I4... and since no
600 V2 would ever be competitive that only leaves the V4... just make it a
90º V4 with 360º Big Bang crank and I would have to have one as a track
Wow, really? Because the 675 triple did win a British Supersport championship running against good teams on every Japanese brand. Not bad for a "no hoper".but the I3
is no hoper for the championship... its engine reciprocating mass are
too heavy and it just don't have enough top end power to win
consistently against the 4 cylinders machines...
