Complaint to BMW about the 2020 power delivery

Hey you guys,
Going to write a letter to the higher ups at BMW tomorrow. Will be in darn good English but without cutting corners. These guys need to know how much of a **** up they have released to the public. I'm even wondering if the current stop delivery/ bike unavailability for a while has anything to do with it. They could have a flash in the works, it's be nice to know.....
Anyhow if anybody wants to join me in the letter PM me we should put as many people behind it as possible, see what they do.

I don’t have the bike, neither have ridden one yet, but wondering what exactly you are going to write them and complain about, the flat power zones? Vibrations? Ticking?

I hear where you are coming from. Although global automotive manufacturers are at the mercy of the local government's with regards to emission laws they still must be able to produce a engine that delivers power to a certain level. You can't produce a motorcycle and have it be worse than the previous model. Although the emissions laws and standards are getting stricter with each year you must be able to take that into account and still achieve the original goal. After all that is the job the manufacturer. I have not ridden the US spec bike but if it is as bad as what many have said. Then a mass of complaints may be the only way to get a software update to fix it. Of course the original rules and regulations must be followed but surely the bike can be tuned to fit within those guidelines and still maintain an acceptable quality that a superbike should have. You can be sure that if I was involved in BMW NA then I'd be following this up asap. @wfo439 did the guy who races the new bike have any issues?

Clearly missing the point. Let's keep the thread on track and not start arguments.

Flat power in 2nd and 3rd obviously. Bikes has got a few other issues but that are minor and manageable. The power delivery is the shocking misery on this bike.
