    I doubt there will be much comparison, if any, to read about in the bike press. I suspect all the S1000RRs at the track launch will be fitted with the latest DDC system. I will be pleasantly surprised if they arenít. The new standard OEM suspension will likely just be generic kit anyway which I imagine will be perfectly adequate once tweaked.

    Yep, although the bike press have run 'base model' tests in the last couple of years as manufacturers now seem to release 2 (or more) versions of their litre sportsbikes

    Itís just a shame that BMW didnít adopt the latest ÷hlins electronic suspension for 2019. In my opinion, having spent a day on track riding an R1M, the ÷hlins kit is far better than the Sachs DDC system. Hopefully the new version will be on par with it. As much as I really like DDC, I am tempted to fit aftermarket suspension before the bike even leaves the showroom floor this time.

    Hopefully the latest DDC has the 'feel' I felt was missing from the gen3 but regardless I'd have though aftermarket passive suspension would be the way to go for you Ryan? I see the V4R doesn't have the active Ohlins of the S model..

    Once I had changed fork springs, oil, air gap, and fitted a 2D potentiometer, the DDC system was fine for trackday use. Not having to count clicks is rather nice! That said if the new system isnít much improved I will likely just fit ÷hlins or K-Tech as the bike will only be used on track. It didnít cost a lot to sort the DDC, and Iím glad I persevered with it, but Iím currently undecided if I will go with it again.

    I was down at my dealer at the weekend and got told now they were expecting the first batch July/August.
    So glad I pulled the plug to be honest, I'll buy one when they're in stock.

    I was told a week back, if ordered now, would be June delivery. Dealer had 19 orders placed - all M spec.

    Not sure how much of that was "sales speak".
