    Re: New 2019 BMW S1000RR: Rumour, Gossip and Intrigue...

    Im very tempted by this new bike. I love the dash. Subframe. Compact shape. Lighter etc...
    More torque at lower revs.
    This is gonna blow the competition away.
    If its more road friendly than rsv4 and v4 panigale which i expect it will be then its got all others beat.
    Love no tail light too.
    Did anyone else notice what must be a first. There are no clipons!
    Bars are attatched to the top yoke.
    This could cause a problem for racers

    The new clip-on / yoke arrangement is certainly interesting but itís going to make buying aftermarket items considerably more expensive. Crashing with the new OEM setup on track (or road) could be quite expensive as well. Aesthetically I think it looks great.

    Looking at the pictures above the only other observation is that the bars look to be wider and flatter for better leverage which is a good indication that the new model is likely to be more track focused.

    there not as bad as i thought. the bar is part of the removable clamp. companies will just make different options to clamp on.

    I like how the mirrors are inside the housing, so when you fold them in to filter you donít stuff up your mirror arrangement.

    Bmw has done a great marketing job on this. They are selling it on it being lighter but is this really the case especially over the 2015 model. The specs say the 2019 model weighs 175kg dry (without the battery). My 2015 weighs 175.5kg dry with the battery (according to the brochure). Whilst the new model is clearly more technologically advanced, is it a step change from Gen 3? I will need to be convinced. I also think it has lost its unique styling and looks like it has been designed by the car m division.
