I just bought a 2016 with 2500 miles and all options, as well as dealer installed Akra slipon and BMW Sport screen for $8500. Bike is in showroom condition literally minus the tires which had literally 3" chicken strips on both sides (how is that even possible)

I've got a '15RR with 18,100-ish miles, and the only problem I had was dust in the dash, which they replaced under warranty.

Don't believe what you hear about "engine problems", they are few and far between. The '17's and later have the ginormous catbox, and reduced performance due to the euro 4 emissions.

It's a small pic on my phone but that looks like a brand new tyre to me. the strips are because it's got harder rubber down the centre for durability and soft grippy rubber on the edges for cornering.

Dual compound tyre

Look at the feathered line created from the tire releasing from the mold at the side. At least 2-3 inches on each side meaning tire wasn't used there

Look at the line from the mold release going across the tire. When that part of the tire gets used, it gets rubbed off

In my experience, the 2015 is the best of the current generation.
