Broke out Photoshop and blanked off the stock graphics (and blacked off the CAT and headers). All ready to play with a new livery! Any ideas? Race Rep? Tyco?



That's close to perfect, bruddah.

I like it with the Red but can live without the big 1000 on the side. And I prefer the black subframe

I find the big 1000 on the side a bit naff. The R could look great if it was a little more in keeping with the colour of the panels. Maybe a little more bronze/magnesium to tie in the clutch cover and subframe could work well?

Been playing in Photoshop. Lose the S1000 on the lower part of the main fairing and enlarge the R to go across the two panels instead. Also lose the yellow and replace with a nice dark grey instead.

What do you reckon?

Iíll hopefully hear from Pidcock BMW this week. Iíll keep the thread updates
Dealer confirmed that they have informed BMW of the number of pre-orders they have. They do not expect the system to allow them to spec individually until March and expect them to arrive in May.

Morning 👋
I had a call from my BMW dealership yesterday and they said my build date is in two weeks, the same as their demo bike. They said a delivery date could be as early as March 🤞🏼

Wow, that's insanely fast. When BMW said the bike would launch in May I wasn't expecting customer bikes to arrive until beginning of June at the earliest. Fingers crossed yours actually arrives that early! Might also mean there might be a press launch fairly soon. Gonna keep my fingers crossed for that too.
