I assume it is the base price? Does BMW actually make a profit from these bikes or are they leading losers? Eye candy to bring folks to the dealerships so they can then sell them a GS, or "just" and R or RR.
That is not the base price. You can go on bmwmotorad website and configure one. $21k base, $29k above is fully loaded which undoubtedly most if not all of the ones coming to the US will be anyway鈥.. that鈥檚 a staggering $9k less than equivalent M1000RR which you also cannot find not fully loaded here in US. So seems like a deal when you look at it from that perspective.

May be they changed their mind. It鈥檚 for the better however. I was excited when it came on the the K67 but unfortunately it is simply not fit for this application. Probably why they removed it. The bike will show an orange light on the dash if the tire is 2-3 psi below the recommended pressure. Which in the case of RR (and R I鈥檓 sure) is an absolutely insane 42 psi of pressure in the rear. Mind you that鈥檚 cold so once you hit it up you鈥檇 be at 45 psi and up (36 to 39 and up in front). Which is fine to save tires on long freeway ride ( why did you buy an R, RR??????) but also incredibly slippery and probably enables around 40-50ft.lbs to be put to the ground. No fun in the straights and try to do canyon carving with that I dare you, let alone track days! In other words you have to accept that if you have the system on, you will have the dash light on at all times for the tire pressure. That鈥檚 not ok with me and I turned the system off permanently on the K67. That鈥檚 ok that I won鈥檛 have to do that on this new one. Would be nice to have for detecting slow leaks but can live without it. Only mad that for the money it won鈥檛 have it but it鈥檚 of no material consequence.

Come to think of it they had to make the MR and MRR under 200kg and the useless stuff had to go. They well know no one in their right mind will ride one of these bikes with 42psi in the rear and 36 in the front so that was probably an easy decision for them. Doesn鈥檛 seem it would be a lot of weight that system but every onces count when you get down to the last few grams鈥..
Glad they chose to remove this instead of the grip warmers 馃槉馃槉馃槉

Just happened to me on the tuono. No warning as no tmps on the tuono and it sure was pretty squishy by the time I figured it out in the middle of i70 high rolling traffic. And these supercorsa 200/55 have nothing on the walls. Nothing! Once you鈥檙e out of air you ain鈥檛 moving. As you said and guessed I was 鈥渋n town鈥 about 10 miles from my house and got home with the bike within an hour. That鈥檚 the only of the 5 mishap with the tuono which is not to blame on the tuono 馃槉

Ordered a base MR 3 weeks ago. According to my dealer's regional rep, builds start in January with US deliveries in early Q3 2023. I hope he's wrong....
You鈥檇 be lucky (and I) if he is right鈥.

for me end of Q1 would be perfect. Street bike is in the garage until at least mid April typically due to weather/cold in the fun spots鈥.

Few more show up every day. I鈥檓 most curious about 44teeth one. They have released their test of the 2023 RR (which they were invited to test in Spain same time as well) but they have not released anything about the MR just yet.

With the warning turned off in the settings you shouldn't get any massage except if there is a leak
I had one of the first k67 and back then it wasn鈥檛 possible. You were getting the messages if system was on and iirc it couldn鈥檛 not be turned off. I鈥檓 glad that鈥檚 changed. If you can turn off initial messages but still be warned if there is pressure loss that would be awesome.
btw I would bet good money that the M1000R will have the system. They didn鈥檛 go like the MRR lightest possible with non electronic suspension, no RDC, etc.It seems the MR will have it all

If similar to the cars, if you reset the tire's baseline after adding or removing air it should only warn when the delta is exceeded.

Happens in winter when the temps drop causing the air to condense. If I add air I will continue to get messages until I perform a reset.
The bmw system uses a temp pressure sensor (measures temperature and pressure) and thus gives a temperature adjusted pressure which in return means you don鈥檛 get the low pressure just because temperature drops.

I also don鈥檛 recall an option in setting like in the bmw cars to reset the sensors/tire after adjusting pressure.
