Is that a UK specific thing? According to my dealer BMW have a couple of different models at hand so production won't grind to a halt in case they experience availability issues with one tyre. Which sounds about right based on my personal experiences.

At said dealer I've seen both the Dunlops and the Rosso Corsas in the past -- which were also present in the promo videos from BMW prior to release. And when I paid them a visit last Monday I saw that one of the bikes from the latest batch had come with Bridgestone S22s (the other one had the Dunlops). So apparently they have at least three different tyre models that the bikes can come with now. Unless the Bridgestones have replaced the Pirellis for whatever reason -- only seen one bike with Pirellis I think.

Mine came with Dunlop Sport Smart 3 on standard wheels and a buddy of mine got Diablo Rosso 2 for his M package with forged wheels.

Still Dunlop Sport Smart 3 tyres for the S1000R and S1000R Sport in the UK as far for a new bike from October 2021

As already said for the M Sport package with the forged or carbon wheels you get the 200 tyre being the Pirellis.

Once my Dunlops are done going straight back to the Pirellis Diablo Corsa II...for me the best tyre
