TFT, LED lights and more adjustability in suspension (front in particular) would be appreciated. Nothing else really needed.

+1 on that. I would definitely consider trading up towards the end of my extended warranty.

I also agree on the few improvements. However I will add my two cents worth on the subject... I would ask BMW to just stay in the hunt with regards to horse power and torque with the competition. I never once purchased a motorcycle because it was the fastest in it's given class. The S1000R in it's current trim is very much a performance machine with an ample amount of power combined with good handling. And regardless if we can come to terms with it, the horse power did at least in part, draw us to this choice when we made our purchase. In my humble opinion, naked bikes are gaining in popularity for many reasons in my area and possibly the US. It would behoove BMW to maintain its status as one of the premium bikes to purchase that offers a generous combination of power and handling, as the bar is raised.

Let the rock throwing begin...  :173: :173:
