Kinda makes me wonder if BMW should really try to revamp the R; as it is now it seems like people are asking the question "why go for a R over the RR?" I think BMW needs to go back to the drawing board w/the R and differentiate it from the RR. Same question I have asked myself about the Tuono vs the RSV4.

Well thats just me trying to spark maybe more conversation. This is a great bike don't take this thread the wrong way but to me it is not a "keep forever" kind of bike.

Why are you selling it? A used S1000R however new won't sell for more than 11K.

Sorry for not responding earlier but it is a great bike but just circumstances in my life right now, the Beemer is unfortunately a luxury that I don't really need right now :(

edit: If I can't sell I guess I will just trade it in towards a Tiger 800 or something eventually.

Check with Cross Country BMW. They had 2 of them last time I was there.

As far as the RR's go. They hold their value better, even if you look at the original ones they are still up there compared to an R with 5k+ miles on it. However I do know they will bumping up the incentives to clear inventory on RR's since the new ones will be available in the spring. IDK if you saw the patent pics of the new RR but im not a fan.

O yes, I saw a black one on their website about a month ago asking price of $10,600. It was a 2015 or 2016 with 6k-ish miles. It was only on their website for couple days before it showed "sale pending". I was considering picking it up and was in contact with the salesman. Not sure if you've seen the same bike but that's a massive difference in price between 2 similar bikes at the same dealership ($10,600 vs $7500)

I do not agree with you at all.  How many people ride a RR more than 100 miles in a day?  The ergos and powerband make the R a true street bike that can be ridden several hundred miles in a day painfree.  My normal day is 350 miles. I have a Panigale and I have done a few 350-375 mile days on it. I was damn glad to get off it and wished the last 100 miles I was home.  On my R I could have gone farther with no problem.

Ask yourself another question, and it has been discussed here. How many people go from an R to an RR versus the other way around?  Not many.  Everyone is different, but like you said, just good topic of conversation.

Really good points - sportsbikes are great until you hit slow moving or standing traffic which can be often ! Once you get going the S1R has some of the best 0-100 times on the road, handles superbly and has the best all round road based electronics package by far  - easy to do the miles on !

I believe one of the reason it doesn't sell well used is because for these premium bikes, a lot of purchasers decide to spend a bit more to get a new one with the most up to date technology.   With the cost of insurance, gear, maintenance, ...  paying a bit more to get the bike "new" isn't breaking the bank for most.
