    Race fairings will need to be enclosed so there should be stuff available.

    It's because cats run hot, better to cool them like this. Function over form.

    Just been looking at that, base model at £15k looks very good vfm, will be interesting to hear how the std suspension compares to latest DDC

    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.
