Saweet!!! Great colour choice. The seat height seems pretty low like the previous models. How does she handle?

Thanks guys


BMW cars are made to HANDLE and be luxury. I.E. a lexus isolates you from the road and the world.....BMW makes you APPART of the road while also pampering your bottom


This bike is much the same. If you select SPORT on the ride control it's very tight...rough almost, but you feel everything. NORMAL is a good mix...like My blackbird...COMFORT is like riding a lay-z-boy :phatyo

On any of the settings it handles great and FEELS like a long 600SS

All the weight is in the lower half so it really is nothing to transition from side to side


Hard as hell to wheelie...it'll do a burnout before it rises unless you give it a yank (but that was the demo...not mine)

Starts at $15800

Heated grips:$200
ESA: $950
ABS: $990
Security: $300
Center Stand $250
Luggage rack: $150
Tinted Screen: $100


Mine retailed at over $18500 plus side bags....and typically YES they are hard to come by. The R I ordered was going to be more than 3 months away :rolleyes This one HAPPENED to be there.

Also, the S is BMW's HOTTEST seller right now and this dealer has sold 14 S models and 7 R models in the last 6 months.....so it's hard as hell to GET one...harder to KEEP it.

He had a DEMO S model (grey) and made me a great deal on IT because #1 he felt bad because he told me no less than 60 days initially #2 it was the demo but at the last second I switched it to the brand new blue. And he was cool and honored the same deal :banana

great bike!

my m3 had that sport mode button...except it didnt change the suspension, it was like a little afterburner that when you pushed it the car jumped like you had dug spurs into its side. it was jedi mind trick though, it just remapped the fly-by-wire throttle. I think this ride control is much more useful, dont have to bust out the screwdriver to mess with suspension settings...changes it in real time? very nice feature.

I'm glad to see bmw still lures you in with the sticker and then proceeds to nickel and dime you with costly options. still a beautiful bike I sat on one of these at the dealer, I liked it a lot so much lighter compared to the usual bimmer pigs. I'll stick with the lightweight supersports, but if I was in the market for an open-classer I would be insane not to consider this one.

that rear light has got to go though, a small detail but IMHO it looks like a baboon's ass.
