As others have said, upgraded electronics including:
- Data logging
- Ability to tune riding modes via a computer or phone app
- Full color, customizable dash

Turn signals that don't protrude (any more than they have to)

Auto-dimming mirrors that have integrated graphics (maybe put the turn signals in the mirror body ?)

Rear mounted video camera with either dedicated display or in-dash display
- Bonus points for programmable start/stop recording and download to PC/phone app

Brake light modulator

As others have said, high performance headlights and LED lighting all around but maybe we can get auto angle adjusting head lights as well.

FULL integration with that nifty new helmet BMW is talking about

Last but not least, programmable fan turn on and a smart fan algorithm for those of us who live in hot climates.
I think you're confusing this with the S1000XR forum

Heh, maybe. I do a mostly streets and twisties so a stripped down track configuration is not necessarily my thing. I like high performance and I like the gadgets.

From the responses here, gadgets are of greatest interest to the majority. Interesting.

Track oriented please, and add more lightness. Get it under 400 so I don't have to buy a Suter after all.

Gadgets are what sell bikes. They will do what is needed to sell them. Out doing the competition is a must.

Data logging is already available since the original bike debuted, so the evolution of the system to work with cellphones like other OEM's would be welcome.

Dropping 30--40 lbs might be a stretch, but certainly welcome, especially if they do it AND eliminate so many (if not all) one time use fasteners.

Finally, all updates moving forward are available as retrofit items for 3rd generation bikes, with the obvious exception being the main frame assembly.

They appear to do so for many in this group.

Look at channel 12 here:

BMW part: 61 35 8 546 524

It does however miss a pitchhing sensor, but uses a vertical accelerometer in the front to sence this.

(In other words not a true six axis IMU, as I think you wanted to point out)
Correct, I was referring to/meant the six axis yaw control which is what the Kawi and Yami's have. Makes a huge difference on the road course.
