Last year I was given the opportunity to ride a specially prepped Rooney Special Airhead BMW in the AustralAsian Safari Rally, touted as the “the toughest, most demanding off-road race in the Eastern Hemisphere.” It’s seven days and 1,500 miles through western Australia’s grand Outback. It was an opportunity I could not refuse. Plans were made over several months, support was garnered from a multitude of sources and in September I got on a plane with a bag full of gear in tow, bound for the other side of the world.
The next generation flat twin enduro will have a base Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $15,800. It became available for purchase through authorized BMW Motorrad dealers in March.
