The Gen4 is the bike that is going to pull me into the 21st century, technologically speaking. Been thinking of downsizing my collection of vehicles lately and the specs and photos of the Gen4 bike have sealed my decision.

My 2010 S1000RR and 1999 BMW M-Coupe will be going up for sale soon and the plan is to have a new Gen4 with the Race Package in my garage by mid to late summer of 2019 alongside my Jeep Cherokee and a to-be-purchased 2016/2017 Husqvarna 701 Enduro.

Yes. IMHO, Upgraded bike is good but is underwhelming, especially looks, compared to the V4R. And this isn’t the conclusion I wanted.

I had a series of Ducati's 1099S, 1198S, ST3S after a K1200RS and a R1100RS. When the S1000RR came out I said no way could I own that, it's too ugly. Asymmetrical headlights are you kidding me, fish gills UGH. The Ducati was a nice bike (somedays) but their dealer network leaved a lot to be desired, at least where I live so I sold all the Duc's and bought a S1000RR and actually warmed up to the aesthetics. I decked it out to be a sport tourer. Traded up to a 2016 and I was able to transfer most of the accessories to keep it a sport tourer. Don't see the possibility of transferring anything to this new bike. All the comparisons made me look at the Ducati website and I noticed that the Super Sport has factory hard bags. HMMMM Unfortunately the dealers are the same. It does beg the question what happened to Sport tourers with the emphasis on sport, I do hand it to Ducati for having one. I probably will warm up to the new S1000RR but I'm in no hurry, the 2016 I have now is still more capable than me, so no reason to move on, yet?

The small lobe being used at cruising throttle and the larger cam used at full throttle or times of full load. One inlet valve is also advanced. Opening one before the other creates a vortex inside the cylinder to more efficiently burn

@BTB I will be getting the full spec version including M pack and carbon wheels.

I may also let you guys know that we will be getting RDC (tyre pressure monitoring) as an option. Much like HSC (hill start control) some say its not needed. But it is offered. Maybe this was already communicated I can't remember.

The engine is definitely the counter rotating crank set up.

Modes are Rain, Sport, Dynamic (this is RACE on the current bikes) and Race (this is SLICK on the current bikes). Ride modes pro adds another 3 completely customizable modes.

DTC is indeed audible from what I know via an ignition cut. Will need to double check. Currently we shut throttle bodies hence the jerk. The ignition cut on the HP4 is literally seamless. It makes the current DTC feel so jerky. Practically 0 drive hindrance.

TFT will integrate with your phone using the BMW Motorrad app. You have bluetooth to your phone for calls, phone book etc. You have bluetooth to your helmet com system. You also have turn by turn navigation on the dash using your phone. This is not a graphic map only turn by turn. The BMW NAV still remains the main GPS system. You also have music available through the dash from your phone.

Scroll wheel on the left operates this. Same as other models.

Clutch cable moved to right hand side.

Water pump moved to left.

All new M accessories like rearsets and levers etc.

New boots, gloves and suit coming.

I will post wheel weights soon. 3 variants. Someone already mentioned though I think.

Probably tons of other stuff I need to go have a read when I'm back at work. Currently on a riding holiday. See I look after you guys! Working on my holidays!
Thanks mate great info on all optional extras and safe riding where ever you are.

Water pump going to need some protection (frame sliders). Where is the heated grips button located ?

Some pics of shiftcam & others

@bennymx when will they announce US pricing? Also, maybe I missed it but is the 200/60 rear tire one of the available options?

Heated grip button is in the same place it always was. Right hand switch above the mode button.
