Bragging rights aside of course. For me, the current R has more than enough get up and go for the street. If I was in the market for another naked, the updated version would certainly make my short list. I would even consider trading up my 18' in a couple of years.
Pony bragging rights will most likely go to the Duc Streetfighter.   

Have you seen the new MV Augusta Rush 1000?

The difference is, a Ducati will likely make it off of the lot before parts start falling off of it...  MV's make way better posters than actual motorcycles you would want to own, IMO.

Well the new S1000XR didnt get the new shiftcam engine so the new S1000R probably won't either. :(

Could be right - definitely TFT dash as well as a major styling exercise - the electronics will definitely get refined - even if it stays at ‘just’ 165 bhp and loses a few kilos it’ll remain a superb bike - hopefully the price point will pitch at its current bracket - I reckon this time next year will be any reveal

Yes but a bit of a letdown to not include the shiftcam, makes the XR and the R a bit of a underdog compared to the RR. Shiftcam gives more low end torque so bit strange to remove shift cam and tune the bike for low end torque instead. Feels a bit cheap. But we'll see. :)

Yes - shiftcam would be nice - a revised look could be exciting though - the XR is subtle but pretty good

BMW stand was one of the busiest at the NEC bike show , lots of interest in the new XR and the 900 twins, so I think they could be in for a busy 2020..I bumped into my local BMW rep and he seemed to think the 2021 R would have the shiftcam motor but we shall see, I hope so anyways.

Yes, the BM stand was impressive ! The bike handling displays in the middle were pretty good too !

Personally I don't think the R needs the shiftcam engine because if I need a 200hp bike it better have some fairings lol

A new TFT, more adjustments in the electronics, an updated look and 20lbs lighter with similar price tag would be awesome!
