I found their article to be a bit misleading. In Germany's BMW website the old model is priced at 17650 Euro and the new one at 18750 Euro. So about a 1000 Euro increase, and a lower price than mentioned in the article (19550 Euro). So we should expect an increase in US prices, but only about 1000-2000 US dollars...Hopefully!

If you look at the canadian pricing on their website they show $18,990 canadian dollars for a base model. Translated to US prices that is merely $14,158. Historically, however, Canadian prices will be lower. As such, we shall see. I am guessing at max a $1,000 increase in price. It seems like BMW has released pricing everywhere except the US.

Some observations. The temp read out is not shown on the dash other than the bike status screen which is separate from the main screen. I also like to have engine temp shown. The integrated brake lights and indicators are actually very hard to differentiate from. If you are indicating to turn and have the brake lights on. You have trouble seeing the indicator because although it flashes, the brake lights are just way too bright and take all your focus.

Damn. I was afraid of that would be the case.
At least they’re easy fixes.

The engine is very quiet and smooth. It is not loud and rattly like the current bikes. It's almost like a jap bike. It has the RR sound to it but it is very quiet. The exhaust has the inline cats and collector box. So it's pretty muffled. Bars vibrate a tad. Not much room in the tail. Seat has 1 bolt which is a lot better than the older bikes. Could strip them if you weren't careful.

That really sucks about the engine temperature. They really need to update that. Otherwise, I picture myself switching between the screens constantly while riding to check. On my current bikes, I always carefully watch the engine temperature.

Actually, I am coming from my ass is on fire Aprilia. I always kept an eye on the gauge. Plus, if the bike is not running at the temperature that it normally does, it is indicative that there may be a problem for you to find. This is ridiculous that the temp display does not show in the ride screen. I hope there is a way to somehow change that.

I'm sure you'll get "un-conditioned" constantly staring at the temp gauge on a bike that doesn't overheat.
