Not sure how accurate the websites are, but for Canada, it is showing 207 hp and USA, 204 Hp. Maybe the Canadian bikes won’t have the flat spot issue. As they shouldn’t cause we are not governed by the EPA

Time will tell.

Let’s hope we don’t have this flat spot issue 3 more weeks of waiting ?

I just got a phone call from a racer in Canada that just got his ///M..... so sorry to say it is restricted. He even has it on the dyno and looks worse than most USA graphs he as seen.

Are you still supposed to receive your bike this week, Fbto? Myself, I have a hard time getting a straight answer from my dealership:serious:

Only different to the US for paperwork, you'll get an owner's manual in French as well as English.

Seriously considering the 2020 S1000RM but buying a restricted ECU is a deal-breaker.
Have Canadian dealers offered to supply a European ECU?
Any new development about the Canadian version and the notorious US flat spot?

Afraid your deal is broken. Canada is no different on this restriction issue. Its North America and too many deals are cut between Mexico, USA, and Canada. Flash ECU options take care of it. PM me if you like.

Thanks for the update. Much appreciated. I'm not against flashing as I had some bikes Rexxer'd including my current Monster 1200R.
Unfortunately, I would never consider flashing an ECU right off the showroom floor.
Still looking from Canadian buyers and if any Canadian dealer solutions were offered.

No dealer will offer to make a bike noncompliant. Unfortunately you're on your own.

I could be wrong but that would be only non-compliant in the USA.
Canada, as far as I know, has no such regulations requiring a downgrade in the mid-range.

Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer will go to the costly lengths of making a different bike just for Canada. If that were the case they have to make a different version for every country with different regulations. So they just play is safe and cost efficient by having fewer versions.

You are correct. We don't need a different bike for Canada. Let's just import the same one that's sold in Europe.

Sorry DarR, but the bike is only compliant if it is "as delivered" regardless of the country. In Canada, that means the same as the US, so you will see the EPA compliance sticker somewhere on the bike, even though it means nothing to us.
Most, if not all, of the dealers in this area will not give you a safety compliance certificate if the cat is missing or if there are other obvious signs of modification. The OEMs are very careful with this, they don't want or need the Government adding more regulations to the industry. Others may not be as discerning in their inspection.
If you'd like to investigate importation, check the RIV government site, there's a list of allowable vehicles. And if you decide to pick the bike up at the factory and bring it to Canada, they will make sure you have a Canadian (North America) bike so that you won't get stopped at import.

I know next to nothing about the BMW S1000RR which is why I'm here.
Notwithstanding, I do know a thing or two about Ducati. What's ironic are the regulation variances between CAN/US and Europe namely; the latter has stricter environmental constraints. Not sure about emissions but I do know the bikes are louder with different exhausts here than they are there. As a result, North American Ducati's have a slight power advantage over European models. Slight being the operative word.
