S1000R 2015
« on: January 30, 2019, 02:38:35 PM »
Good day all,

New member here from Cyprus.
Just wanted to ask a question and wanted an honest answer so the best option was this forum
I just came back from the dealer here and they have a used 2015 BMW S1000R. The motorcycle has all the bells and whistles, and the white paint is in good condition. fork seals look OK, the steering was moving freely from side to side  and all the buttons worked.
The only visible damage the bike has is the oil cooler and some minor fin damages on the water radiator . All fins in the centre of the oil cooler are bend from rock chips the front tyre was picking up.
The final price was 13500 Euros cash.
Do you think the oil cooler might be a problem in the long run or the price its just to steep for that year ?

Thanks in advance

PS. I did not test drive the bike because i was on my lunch break.

I am not sure want used bikes go for in Cyprus, but that price looks very high for a 2015 model year bike, unless it was in perfect condition.

That price seems very high for a 2015 bike, but as taxation and market forces vary from one country to the next, its hard to say whether its a high price for Cyprus. FWIW, the official BMW dealer network in the UK currently has a number of 2015 bikes in stock, ranging from 8600 to 10900 in price.

Unfortunately yes taxation is a big problem here in Cyprus.
The charged too much per CC.
I see the UK stock is very cheap but the transport expenses to import one +clearing fees and TAX will save you nothing in the end.
Except the oil cooler what else should i check? Will try and book a test ride this Saturday

Bring a small pocket flashlight.
Check condition of the tires.
Check the brake pads front and rear.
Carefully inspect both sides of both rims.
Check condition of sprocket and chain.
Pull in the clutch and throw an eye on the clutch cable then look under and check condition of the micro switches. Check the condition of the clutch cable on the other end.
Check the pivot points on the clutch, gearshift lever and front and rear brakes.
Check level of coolant and oil.
While on the test ride check that the quick shifter, cruise control and heated grips work flawlessly.
Hope this helps, have fun!
You should remember that its peace of mind youre after and not just a fixed machine.

I'm coming up to a year of ownership on my 15 S1kr, same spec as you have described but without the oil cooler damage.  Had 7k miles on the clock

I paid 8400 for mine last April.  As you say, tax etc is pushing the price up, but might be worth working out by how much as to if the dealer is pushing their luck with it or not.

Or, go in a point out the cooler damage, use it as a bargaining point to get some off.

At the end of the day, if you are happy with your purchase, doesn't matter how much you paid!

I bought my 2015 S1000RR new in 2015. It now has about 12,400 miles and never had a problem. If that bike was well maintained it should be OK. Cant comment on the price.

If you do buy it, you can very carefully straighten the cooling fins with a dental pick. They are soft so care is the key. Then an aftermarket gravel guard. The 15 only up shifts with the quick shift and don't bother with the 1 to 2 shift try it at upper gears and quickly moving and accelerating. It should be priced about 60% of a new one.
