I haven't even received my bike and already upset it won't be coming with an outside temp sensor.
Can a sensor be retrofitted & coded? comes with cruise control & heated grips, bluetooth etc, but no outside temp, very strange given the tourers with the same 6.5" display have an air temp sensor.
There is a air intake temp sensor on the bike but no display on the dash. They obviously didn't think the RR needed one.
This is one thing I really like on the K46 is the temp read out of the IAT.
@bennymx - does the R1250GS have this on the TFT display? I have not spent enough time at the dealer playing with the R1250 to see if it is there. If it is, then I might can turn this on with my engineering software. The bad is it is an undefined parameter and very hard to find if it is there.
Riding and loving my 2020 K67 with the custom XWORKS ECU
Check out MotoMillion ( forum Vendor section ) for all your needs in ECU work
Check out MotoMillion also has programming for RCK3 / HP power Kit enables now
Programmer for MotoMillion is myself ( BMW_388 )
I personally own the 2014, 2015, 2018, 2020 S1000RR
This makes for checking my ECU work is perfect every time sold by MotoMillion
I would miss the readout; checking the temperature can be amusing when riding while rapidly changing altitude, etc.
I miss the temp sensor. But given the TPM, I'm more surprised that there is no tire temperature indicator. That would be super useful, and I think most/all tire pressure sensors measure temperature too.
I am going to friggin crash if someone can't figure out how to get an engine temp guage on the main screen. I cycle back and force 10000 times during a ride looking at engine temp. This is such a massive oversight it is not funny. Give me my engine temp!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Given the sensor is actually installed, surely the dealer should have the means to code this on.
I'm guessing 3 years from now with its lifecycle facelift model, BMW will eventually display the air temp and increase the power by approx 7hp

I, too, would like the engine temperature (is it oil or coolant? I assume coolant) on the main screen. It is annoying on the earlier models when the Service message comes up over the temperature readout.
But I do not find this troubling as I know at what temperature the bike runs under various conditions and thus know it is fine.
Why do find a need to check so often? Is the temperature varying in ways you do not expect? Does your bike routinely overheat?
