RSV4 1100 seems to be the bike to get this year if you are not willing to deal with the small imperfections of the new RR and the enormous travesty that the RR got for fuel delivery and keep your warranty.

The RSV4 can get a simple $800 Akro can (that removes exhaust flap and cat, no need for full exhaust) and get flashed BY THE DEALER, retain full warranty and put out 205-209rwhp. Handles like a dream, and will sh1t all over the 2020 S1000RR, deristricted or not :-) You can get GPS on it, phone, music, just like the RR, without the useless tire pressure monitoring thing. The app will let you adjust all electronics turn by turn at the track using the app. Very cool just tried it today couple of hours after letting go of the 2020 S1000RR. If you need a bike right now, that's the way to go. The 2021 or possibly 2022 S1000RR will still be a bike to get at that point. Not right now.....

If we had an Aprilia dealer here, I'd be tempted when my '17 warranty expires to go that route. But since we don't, I'll keep the best RR BMW ever made for a while longer.

Id stick it out a little longer at the very least. I have ridden the RSV4 1100 and the 18RR and a 20RR back to back. While the RSV4 is quite confidence inspiring the 18 is a banshee on the track and smashes it in the straits. the 20 will beat the 18 above 9K all day.

ECU fixed and you are good to go.

Aprilia got it right. The 1100 is strong on all fronts right out of the box. So long as you are not planning on entering 1000cc class races all is good. I was planning on only having 1 race bike next year and was hoping it would be the S1000RR. But may need to go with 2 bike approach again and get a RSV4 1100 as well....

Let me get this straight the advertised 204hp or what ever it is for the 2020, is not the case since the older RR (2015 and up) are quicker? Or is the older RR just quicker depending on the gear you're in?

no, it makes the advertised 204hp and then some. Just everything below peak in the first 4 gears is restricted heavily

I feel your pain. Aprilia has been on my mind as well. No major changes except for the engine and the bike is still a top contender. I cant wait to see a redesign though.
