    Personally as you have a low mileage Gen 3 I think it would be wise to wait one more year and see what the 19 model S1K is like.

    What other manufactures are you considering, specially?

    I think if you want to try something else then go for it. Fact of the matter is the s1k is arguably the best bike in its class so you are unlikely to be moving up to something better. You can always get another bmw when you find that out.

    From what I can gather from the comments made by MacRR on the other thread, he wanted a newish bike but due to budget wasnt able to hold out for the ‘19 bike so bought some jap crap instead, so you could always downgrade and do something like that. Lol.....

    If it's an itch you want to scratch , scratch it. Doubt if you'll find anything any better than what you've got though.
