Here's some engineering drawings from the patent application.
The swing arm pivot bolt runs through the countershaft sprocket.Imagine that.

Their clutch may have something novel allowing for a patent, but primary clutches aren't new. My friend had a 1972(?) Puch 175 with a primary clutch - it was about the size of a tuna can.

Yes, also the Montessa 250 VR of the late '70s used a crank mounted clutch. Pretty slick, we'lll see though. I thought about the oil thing too, maybe they have another pump for it. Cannondale had a transmission/clutch oil pump as well.

I thought crankshaft mounted clutches went out with the sixties. Too many problems to name here. Maybe BMW has fixed all of them? Not likely.

Salminen looks to have his sorted out.

Knight had early successes at home, but some machine failures and bad luck have kept him off the WEC podium.

Dirt Rider magazine pretty well trashed the bike in a recent enduro shoot out article.

I must say as a mechanical engineer, the BMW fascinates me. Would I buy one to race? Pretty doubtful. It's got a long ways to go to compete with the major players in enduro.
