The pegs are more grippy. They look the same but have more grip because they do seem machined.

OK, I am sure many of you remember the thread about 'veering' . I will tell you my 15 did so bad, it was pitiful. You take your hands off the grips and it shot right immediately up to about 5000 miles with cruise control on so there was no engine decel effecting the bikes balance. We all discussed... clutch cable positions, muffler weight, rear wheel alignment, front wheel in forks alignment.. the list goes on. BMW did not want to acknowledge to most people that there was even a veering issue. There was in fact a PuMA report entered into the system November 17 2015 on veering. What to look for, and what to tell the customer. Here it is, and as you can see, it is mostly off center of gravity based on design.

Now, BMW indicates to blame it on exhaust components change, but in fact, if you put a lighter full exhaust, most felt it was better and lessened the veering.

On a positive note. Lets hope the new 2019/20 ( K67 ) comes out balanced and straight as a arrow...

To summarise, those that don't experience veering are too fat.

Casey and Nicky made it popular, but if you read the article pretty much everyone and anyone now uses this technique at the higher levels of racing (still most likely above anyone here, but I've seen plenty of people trying). My original question was if you could still be on the throttle and the rear brake without intervention.

Good to hear! Hope that translates to better grip in the wet. Current pegs suck in the wet!

Dylan, thanks for taking the time to share all the info re the new DoubleR. I saw you already mounted Dunlops--what did your mechanic think about changing tires on the new carbon wheels? Please let us know how that rear Q4 lasts at the track on the new bike

I see the reason for your question, as it would interfere with that style.

Hello regarding the veering subject as i understand with my 2017 hp forged wheels i had alot of veering due to the wheels have les mass so they will not produce enough centrifugal force to overcome the rotation of the engine so the bike start to veer and as i know they have addressed this problem in 2019/20 model as you can see in the YouTube video at 5:20 i advice to watch the whole video lots of good info enjoy excuse my English language and lack of knowledge thank you all

Email from BMW says they're going to be at COTA during the MotoGP race there next month and will be making all their "new" bikes available to ride. Be interesting if one or more of the expert riding members here, who can evaluate a bike objectively, are going to the race and plan to take the new RR out for a trial ride and report back. A "real world" perspective from the saddle would be worth more than hundreds of speculative posts. Not to take anything away from Dylan's posts, but an evaluation from someone who plans to plunk down his own discretionary capital to buy one of these would be very interesting. I'm no longer looking to buy one of the new bikes, as I purchased a BMW sport-tourer to complement my '17 (which is still the best sport bike I've ever owned, and is set up perfectly for my needs), but still curious about the "real world" feel of the new RR.

Anyone going? Planning to ride the new bike?
