Everyone wants a BMW

BMW Motorrad UK is all over the news at the moment. They've had their most successful year in racing with Dunlop championing the roads and Ryuichi Kiyonari finishing a close second in the MCE British Superbikes.

This brings me onto 2015... Dunlop has apparently split from BMW commenting, "I have 11 TT trophies on my mantelpiece and only three were won on a BMW, so I plan to be back with another manufacturer. I will wait and see what happens, but I can assure you I will be back to win more TTs and North West 200s next season and beyond." - So with Dunlop out, who do they replace him with?

His brother perhaps? Yes rumours have been flying that Tyco may switch machinery to the BMW for 2015 and also become the factory set up in MCE BSB. Tas Mackenzie has left the squad sparking rumours as there wouldn't be a 600 ride available for him in the BMW arsenal. Tyco have yet to comment and BMW are just as secretive.

Paul Bird of PBM has also expressed an interest in BMW; you know he'd want to be the factory squad in MCE BSB and he's also signed up Ian Hutchinson for his roads campaign.

Whatever happens I predict we'll be seeing a lot more BMWs in the MCE BSB paddock plus on the roads as everyone tries to grab a piece of the growing success of the German make.

We'll see how this one plays out.
