I looked into it a little,
something about a seal or gasket between the transmission and engine that tends to leak oil on this bike, and a couple other things,
and the overall low rating that owners reported to consumer reports on the frequent need to take BMW bikes to the dealer for service and repair.
They rate lower than HD on overall reliability.
From a mechanical design perspective a 2 cylinder boxer engine is very smooth and balanced, but the rest of it... not too sure.
The bike was $15,000 new back in 2001, now its averaging $2k with that kind of low mileage. I'm pretty sure I have never seen one.
