This was my point -- they're not going to deliver a 2020 bike until the 2nd half of 2019 at the earliest. September would not surprise me at all.

This 2hp stuff reminds me of the V4R dyno thread...lol

The only thing to consider is that BMW has not been making the current 2019 bike for quite some time. As such, they need to get the new bike out so that dealers have inventory to sell. At least, that makes sense. I hope BMW sees it the same way.

As you can see in the calculation converting 207 metric hp to inches hp will give you 205 hp

There's 202 new 2018s and 2019s for sale on cycletrader. Doubt these are moving that quick, either...it's common knowledge there's a new bike coming at this point.

Without giving the VIN can you reveal if it is an official US production bike, or is it a grey market bike?
My understanding is that it is an “early production model”

Not a “mule” aka “production mule”

No, it gives you 204 HP - according to your own screenshot.

On the BMW build sheets is clearly marked

151kw / 205hp USA

152kw / 207hp ECE

For whatever reason, and it is most likely government related, there is a code difference between USA and ECE builds. Its no different than a stock S1000RR K46 being retuned with RCK3/HP Power Kit and getting 2-4 more HP with software only. That is on the stock pipe. Put the full exhaust and the rating is 8-12HP.

Now, the real catch to the HP ratings is that if you listen real closely to Nate, Josef, and other BMW associated people that work on the K67 project, you will hear them stress that USA is 205HP... but they can assure you that Europe ( ECE ) is an honest 207HP snicker or more. I am thinking we will see 210HP on ECE code.

I have provided ECE code to many RCK2 and RCK3 upgrades and everyone is very happy with my work and performance out comes. I like the ECE code. It feels crisper and smoother in operation.

I am already prepared with my ECE coded K67 ECU, EWS, 2 keys, and TFT cluster. Still waiting on the wiring harness. Then the testing will begin finally.

Thanks, sounds sweet. I had a feeling that they worked on improving the shifter but in all the presentations they never talked about it. Could you also comment on the vibrations if any?
