I heard from my dealer yesterday and he said, the district manager for BMW told him there will be a limited number of bikes that will be going into production in September. He can not tell me who will be getting this limited amount. He also said that BMW will be emailing [me] direct in the near future. [They] gave them everyone's info who had ordered the S 1000 RR as per their request.

I also rode a 2020 at CotA last weekend, and wow is the 2nd/3rd gear restriction real. My 2015 S1000RR and '15 R1 pulled so much harder out of corners in that 4-8k rpm range. A 2020 will have to have the flash without question.

Interesting. Even today heard from mine that all is according to plan that the production is allocated to him (me). I cross fingers. Otherwise Iíll have to do with his demo bike when I get my sport riding craves.

On the riding on track. To overcome the restrictions you should have ridden in 1st above the 9krpm ranges, the bike has so much revs available! See Troy Corser videos and you will see what I mean.

My fingers crossed for you as well! On the track, agree that I made a mistake in not focusing more on keeping it above 8-9k with first, riding around the gap in power. Just spoiled? that I didn't have to with the other two bikes and this one is advertised as more power in mid range. There are definitely a lot of rider mods/improvements needed, but that's the fun part.

Well, I got a letter from BMW Motorrad today saying they were sorry for the delay, next production is in late Sept and gave me a credit to use towards accessories for the bike once it does show up. This means a lot seeing as in 2015 after the R1's transmission issue the bike sat for 3 months then they tore it apart and gave it back. Yamaha did not say sorry or offer any sort of compensation. Makes me happy to be a BMW customer.

As said production starts again.
Normally Iíve always had good after sales service from BMW in particular when I had failures on the bike. Immediately responded options solved quickly.

Agreed on BMW's after sales support. I've had good experiences also.

I ordered my new bike in March and is currently due for October production and December delivery at best I'm advised after dealer looked up the portal and build number. Just bought a 2015 model to tie me over until then. The delivery date keeps getting moved back all the time and I couldn't wait anymore to get back on the road.

2019/20/K67/Gen3 or whatever M Sport ordered

March ordered, that's hard to take, I recently ordered an M Sport and the dealer is saying Jan/Feb.

March and I thought my June was bad. I just keep filling my closet with upgrades for the bike whenever it does show. Buying a '15 isnt a bad idea though with your wait.

Just for curiosity you ordered the M with some of the other options? Which ones?
My dealer has an order that got pushed to next year wonder if the spec requested has anything to do with this.

Me too - $500 and a tank/tail bag if I read it right. It's a really nice gesture. That said, I'd pay an extra $500 to actually get the bike or to know when it will arrive!
