What do you want to see in the new S1000R?
« on: February 05, 2020, 11:15:15 PM »
What will it be, a 2022 year model, avail in Q3-Q4 2021?

Here is the list I send BMW Motorrad Customer Relations:
Lighter and more power
LED lights all around and no low beam shut off when the high beam is on
TPM and battery voltage in the cluster
External temp display in the cluster
TFT + companion app for navigation
Keyless start
4 straps/ anchors instead of 2 under the passenger seat
No wiggling in the handlebars controls
Address the handlebars vibrations in low gears and mid-range RPM
Better quality plastics surrounding the radiator
A little bigger space under the passenger seat for storage usability

I'm not in love with keyless ignitions, but other than that the list looks good.

$9,999.00 price :) but that won't happen. You list seems reasonable but honestly I'm fine with my 2015.

These days I'm enjoying my 2014 bought new last year as much as the S1000R the V4 makes a fine rumble to ride atop.

The list above looks good but honestly my only real wish is for better headlights at night. Other than that I think the bike (mine is a MY '18) is perfectly fine as is  :305:

Brushed metal silver swing arm or thicker paint on the matt black frame and belly pan to cover the cat.

More Power
Configurable engine and TC settings.
LED headlights and that's it.

They can keep keyless ignition, TPS and TFT screens for me though.

The bike as it stands is pretty much perfect and only needs a couple of minor things to bring it back in line with the likes of the Tuono.

In no particular order:
- LED lights (or just better lights at any rate)
- TFT dash with connectivity
- More adjustable damping
- More adjustable ergos (seat, bars, foot pegs)
- More low and mid-range torque

I dont believe the R needs any more power, other than for pub bragging rights. This article explores that particular chestnut... https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocial/news-and-views/blog/how-much-horsepower-does-my-bike-use?cid=sm_000010
