Thanks to the collaboration with BMW Designworks in California, the new 8R is easy to spot with its boxy roof, daytime running lights and colourcoded mirrors; it's just a shame the size of the mirror glass seems to have been sacrificed as part of the styling makeover. In contrast, if you look at the big mudguard extensions from behind, you'll notice that no functionality has been lost here.
