I had a S1000RR order for 2023 model with 2022 year production but I have recevied a notification from the Motorrad dealer that all second half production for the next year models are canceled due to model update and changes. I was informed that I will be able to receive the motorcycle earliest 2023 Feb-March time frame. Irony is I have already ordered all carbon fibers from Ilmberger that worths 4000 euro. Now I am wondering what to do with the carbon parts since BMW is not announcing what will be changed for 2023 models yet. Meanwhile I am also wondering why they have the 50th years anniversary M1000RR announced which doesn't have major changes from the previous M model.

Most probably they will announce the changes either this July or in November at EICMA but canceling all orders for the second half of the year doesn't make any sense.
Anyone wanna buy carbon parts ? :)

Was your order in already with BMW Corporate? Maybe your dealership plans to sell the one that was meant for you for a higher profit margin. I've heard of dealerships doing this when the markets get tighter.

I wouldn't expect big changes for 2023, other than color options and maybe an engine tune for performance/emissions.

Bummer they're jerkin you around. My buddy at MAX BMW in CT has a few different 22's if that's good enough for ya!

Also, I need the front fairing (surrounding the gauge screen, not the side fairings) CF panels, if you've got em.

I totally agree with you. I live in Stuttgart and I bought my 2022 s1k from the dealer here. The only thing I heard is new colors for M1K and GS 1300 which will be released on 2024. Other than that, I believe new colors.

Yes it was already in with BMW Corporate. Could be big changes since this is 100th year anniversary.

August is model year change over at the factory. MY22 are probably sold out and now the focus shifts to MY23 where you will get one early 23.
I bought my GS the same way, gave the purchase order in May and received the bike on mid September. And I was told by Motorrad dealer that model changes will be applied on July as usual and I will be able to receive the motorcycle latest September. Considering my order was in place in April and now the delivery will happen in Feb-March timeframe this is almost a year of delay on this purchase. How tight and small is the production of BMW if all of their bikes are sold out even when you give a purchase order in the first quarter of the year.

not cheap to fix either i would imagine.
That's if it can be fixed. My friend with the KTM Superduke has had times where his fob is right next to the dash and the thing won't start. Having these intermittent issues is a troubleshooting nightmare.

Not to mention, the ease of theft that will eventually happen. Owning a BMW car with comfort access which is the fancy term for keyless ignition, there has been known issues of thieves being able to snoop the transmissions between the key and the car.

Heard from a dealership recently who came back from Germany and he told me the 2023 model is supposed have winglets like the M1000rr but smaller and some other updates to it. Also told me they didn't give out the color combinations yet. Bike expected to come around March next year.
