    They are already sourcing motors there. Kymco (Taiwan) makes the motor for the G450X and Loncin is making the G650 motor.

    Sounds like if folks want German made, they’ll need to stay clear of some models…

    World economy…the times they are a changin’!

    There was an article in the MOA mag a few years back that listed the country of manufacture for all the major components of the GS. If I rememebr right there were a lot of eastern European sources.

    The bike was only assembled by BMW. Made abroad by many sources.

    I read somewhere, and I can’t remember where, that they are building a plant for auto’s in China, as are just about every major car co. It stands to reason that they (BMW) would want a piece of the bike market also. China’s economy is really taking off, even with the present problems with the world markets.
