Looks like thereís added riding mode adjustability in Dynamic Pro (engine braking, torque in lower gears etc) bit no more suspension adjustability?

Yeah the individual damping options of the RRs Race Pro modes don't seem to be present. I can only find info on the preset Road and Dynamic options that change automatically based on selected riding mode or manually from the button on the handlebars.

  When looking at the specs on the new bike I see that it's listed at 199kg.
 I wonder if that is with the standard or optional lithium battery?
 That's almost 13 lbs lighter than the old bike.
 Also the standard seat is over half an inch taller but there are low and high seat options.

Far as I know 199kg is with standard equipment. With the M Package and carbon wheels I think the weight is down to around 195kg. But that is also with everything else standard,  so no DDC etc -- just the basic bike with the M Package. A none M Package bike with all other packages ends up being just above 200kg. The forged wheels are 1kg lighter in total compared to the stock wheels and the carbon ones 2,8kg lighter than stock.

Edit: Went and had a look at the spotlight video from BMW and 199kg is indeed stock weight without any options or packages. so it goes like this:

Stock: 199kg
Stock + every packaged except M Package: 203,5kg
Stock + every other package + M Package: 200,3kg
Stock + every other package + M Package + carbon wheels: 198,5kg
Stock + M Package + carbon wheels: 195kg


(weight is at 5:32 and the wheels are mentioned during the chassis segment at 8:44)

New test video, and it's the first one with the Hockenheim Silver bike too:


Edit: Seems Georamage beat me to it.

Thanks for sharing.  Hopefully MCN Michael Neeves will get hold of a test bike soon, and put out a video in English.

I'm very much looking forward to his take on it, as well as the new Speed Triple 1200 RS.

Two more videos from the french test ride:



There's plenty of FPV track shots in the second video and from the looks of it the front end shake is still there and strong as ever. For an inexperienced person like myself the shaking looks borderline dangerous at times which is worrying unless I'm completely wrong -- which is highly possible. But I feel like I watch a lot of bike tests and I can't remember seeing other bikes shake as much. Would be interesting to hear what you guys think about it.

Thanks for sharing the two videos.  I also noticed the handlebar shake going through and exiting the corner.  Very unusual.  Have not seen the same in previous videos.  Wonder if itís rider, bike or track related.

Iíve got a decent amount of track riding experience and Iíd say it doesnít look too bad, if anything Iíd say the body mounted camera exaggerates the movement. Sometimes movement like this can be down to riding style and not necessarily the bike
