This article on the new XR is interesting :
https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocial/news-and-views/news/2019/august/massive-update-for-2020-bmw-s1000xr


So it states that actually in the UK the total sales ranking (from launch) is XR/RR/R but by market and world wide its different with the rankings ending up XR/R/RR - the local dealer here said that RR sales are much slower (although there is a production delay).

I love my S1000R. Its the easiest to ride. And the most comfortable after a hangover lol. I think if a new model does come out it would be out in 2021 or 2022 at the latest. I hope they dont discontinue it like one of my favorite BMWs the K1300R. I kept putting off buying one and then it was discontinued.

IMO I dont think the SKR will be discontinued.  My dealer said he sold more R's than RR's in the last few years. But thats one dealer. If they do come out with a 2nd generation it will be a lot sleeker than the current model. And the reason I said if they did make a new one it would probably come out in either 2021 or 2022. Ducati came out with the V4 in 2018. Now they are releasing the Ducati Street fighter V4 sometime in the spring of 2020. Aprilia is rumored to be releasing its new RSV4 in 2021 and the tunono should follow a year or 2 later. Would BMW drop its SKR while Ducati and Aprilia come out with naked bikes? Who knows. I hope they make something to battle against Ducati and Aprilia.
