I'll believe it when I see it. This rollout has been very frustrating, but what are you going to do? No control over the matter.
I also ordered a red one, did you get a vin? I don't think anyone that ordered a red bike has received one yet?

Because I’m number 3 in Canada and haven’t received my bike yet. And the guy before me got his bike last week.

That ok, I’ll take the second batch. Just like making pancakes, the first batch is for testing the pan. The second one is perfect

"Moin guys, according to my source, there are problems with the build quality of the motor housing and another problem with a lid. He could not say anything to me, apparently the absolute engine - light construction also has disadvantages, I suspect material fatigue of the above parts."
From the german forum. It seams that BMW is having more than 1 problem with the new bike . No press people here that could contact BMW and ask some hard questions ?

S 1000 RR Order Status and Production Delays
Dear: __________________________
I am writing to you today to update you on the above topic; a topic that is as disappointing and frustrating for BMW Motorrad UK and its Retailers as it is for yourself.
First, please let me apologise on behalf of BMW for the extensive delay that you have had to endure so far. Secondly, please excuse the lack of personalisation on this letter which is due to the fact that your data is at this stage held by your Retailer and not BMW itself.
Unfortunately, I’m sorry to have to inform you that BMW’s Plant Berlin continues to experience ongoing production delays with this brand new model. These delays are the result of supply chain issues and the nature of these delays mean that confirming expected delivery dates is very challenging.
To put the topic in context, in advance of the new bike’s 1 June launch UK Retailers were holding several hundred confirmed orders, over half of which were placed in or before the last quarter of 2018; as at today we have delivered to UK customers less than ten bikes! In addition, last Friday we were informed that worldwide RR production in Berlin will virtually cease through June and July, while the plant builds the backlog of May’s production. Therefore, even the August and September delivery dates that many UK customers were given in good faith by their Retailer may not now be met. In fact, as we currently cannot obtain a guarantee that high volume production will definitely re-commence in August, there is still a small risk that we may not even deliver every one of the currently held orders this year.
The ‘supply chain issues’ referred to above apparently centre around a single component provided by a third party that has not been able to provide acceptable quality on 100% of parts supplied. As you would expect, Plant Berlin will simply not build bikes that in any way do not meet BMW’s exacting standards, hence the very slow rate of production so far.
Separately, in the UK we face an additional issue in that over 80% of our orders are for the top of the range M Sport specification while the factory currently has a maximum capacity of 35-40%.
We understand the anticipation for this model is extremely high and can only reassure you we are working as hard as possible in the background to achieve the earliest possible delivery date for you. I can also confirm that as bikes are received in the UK they will continue to be allocated as fairly as possible based on retailer order date.
In recognition of the further disappointment this announcement will cause we would like to offer you a £500 Retailer Credit which can be used towards servicing, parts ,accessories or BMW rider wear and which will be available upon collection of your ordered S 1000 RR.
Once again, please accept my apologies for the massive inconvenience and frustration caused by the delay you are experiencing and thank you in advance for your continued patience and loyalty to the BMW Motorrad brand.
Yours faithfully

I guess I should call up BMW NA customer service to see if I can get a $500 credit for the delay as well lol. However I'm curious and or worried about some of the bikes already with guys experiencing high vib issues. I may just pull the plug and wait till next year since I hate the current color options but suppose I'll wait and see more info trickle out.

I would assume with supply quality issues thats a delay for world wide distribution. I'm really curious as to the exact part, if it were wheels then you'd probably see reds trickling out. Seems its got to be a key mechanical or chassis part to delay all the bikes.

Like the rest of the world you guys dont get any bikes .
My understanding of this is that BMW will try to start with the bikes that was planed to be shipped in may. So if you have a delivery date for first week of June you may get your bike in jul or aug.if nothing else happens

But take my opinion with a grain of salt I'm 21 and this is my first real sportbike and first 1000cc motorcycle so I dont want to sound like an expert or like that guy comparing it to a GXR 750 LOL I love it though and congrats too all the other owners!
I took Delivery of my bike on 6-9-19 and have 480 miles on it now. I left to Mexico last week and have not had a chance to post my thoughts! I love the bike it feels lighter faster and stronger than my 18 is. The rev limiter is annoying but it will be gone soon

CONS: it is more buzzy than my 18 was but that seems to be bar ends. I removed the bar ends on my 18 and sure enough its significantly more buzzy than the 20 now.

Everything about the bike is an upgrade in my opinion. The display the suspension the power. I will have more details when I hit the track in August with it.

A guy in Ireland who already had his bike now received a recall notice. They are not sure yet if the bike can be fixed at the dealer or if it has to go back to the factory.

Word is also that BMW has put a worldwide delivery stop notice for all dealers.
