If you were working with San Jose BMW in California, you might be in luck...
Are ppl lining upto buy what is essentially overpriced machinery for street use? Unless they are racing, even regular track day goers won’t get much more from the m1000 than the s1000. This forum might also just have a handful of riders (like Dylan and Speedfinn) capable of extracting performance from the m. What is even the point for others?
Agreed. And so well put.It's not about that @gmten . It never is. Motorcycles are complete wank. They are the poor mans sports car. Its all about image. That is most of the sales of the more expensive limited edition models. A few track guys with money will strip them and actually race or track them. Most are lounge room pieces or Sunday cruisers. Its the nature of the industry.
With this line of thought most should stay away from any superbike and just buy a naked instead...Are ppl lining upto buy what is essentially overpriced machinery for street use?

How is it quicker exactly ? Can you post some data to back it up ? Lap times ?The M1000RR is a sexy bike. Compared to my 2017 S1RR, the M1RR will be more precise, quicker, and possess refined engineering features. Echoing the earlier sentiment, @bennymx statement rings true for me - I don't have the coin for a new red Ferrari. The M1RR is the next best thing
Stickers, yes (there is another topic with pictures where the OP applied on his).Serious question: will the fairings and sticker for the m1000rr fit the s1000rr? I don't care for the m1000rr specs, financially speaking, but I do love the looks... Can I get an s1000rr with the looks of the m1000rr??
The China plastic with that look has been done for a bit now. It’s the cheapest way price wise to make your s look like the m. Well let me take that back. It might be cheaper to just buy the stickers and replace on your oem fairings. Buy some rpm carbon replica winglets and your basically there look wise minus some engine covers, and different color subframe. I personally wouldn’t wanna drill holes in new bmw plastic for the winglets which is why I would get the China set if someone wants go that routeI am sure the Chinese will copy the M1000 body for S1000 application by the end of summer. Dont knock the chinese plastic too much, it fits really well and the tabs are very thick and dont break like they did in the past on the GSXR's.
You can get the S1000 body parts from BMW dealers in base white only. Then order the M1000 decals and apply those to the base white parts.
