Another BIG problem down the track due to the major recall on 2012 models
So as it stands, the current 2012 model has already been upgraded with the HP4 depreciating our 2012 s1000rr's even more.
I'm not overly concerned about that as when I purchased my 2012 model, I intended to own it long term, and won't be considering selling it for at least 5 to 6 years from now.
The problem is that when any of us do in fact try to sell our perfectly good bikes, we will be getting all sorts of minimal (somewhat offensive) offers from assholes in the general public as the 2012 model has a lemon reputation as manipulated by all jealous wankers who do not own one just because of the major recall, as a way to get the price down and frustrate us fellow 2012 riders.
How annoyed do you get when you've gotta keep explaining to jealous dickheads that the recalled con-rod bolts issue was rectified?
Well.... just saying. Good luck to all when eventually selling.....
