I don't think BMW has made a 6 cylinder motorcycle yet!! ie: Beemer = BMW motorcycle.

The reason for the fuss is a V6 configuration is inherently not balanced and NOT smooth, like the in-line 6 is or the V8.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
