M SPORT MAKEOVER FOR SPORT SE!!
« on: June 28, 2017, 09:46:32 AM »
Found this Cyprus decal supplier who makes high quality (and high priced) M Sport stickers for the XR.  Judge for yourself, but for me this takes 'White Beauty' to another level.   She gets lots of high compliments!

Hi Gatso - here's the link to the supplier: https://www.signaturecd.com/product-category/bmw/bmw-s1000xr-styling-kit/    Price is listed at €185 + VAT + Dely.  As soon as I registered (but before my order was shipped) an email came offering 20% on next purchase.   I wrote and pressed for the offer to apply to my order - and they agreed.  Total payment €161.   The quality of the product reflects high design and manufacturing costs, hence the price I guess.   Do you like?

I like it a lot, very eye catching, I went for the Grey, White and Red coloured bike for the same reasons, felt the white to be just too plain, I wouldn't be surprised to see Motor Sport colours on the 2018 models,
That said its an amazing bike in any colour  :062:

They also do them for the red "slower" bike.

the white was just as fast as the red, not faster, until one hangs heavy vinyl stickers all over it that mess up the aerodynamics, creating additional drag, it then becomes much slower than the smooth red :082:.

I took out a demo bike from a UK dealer today.

When I was chatting about the bike with the dealership, they told me that a new M Sport colour way was being introduced and available to order in the next week or so.

Should look good, all M Sport colour way bikes from BMW have looked good in my opinion.

I liked the bike but there was still quite a buzz between 4-5k rpm.  Decisions decisions!

wow, bmw motorsport colors have always an awesome look. If they add some new upgrades (for example, ecall, RDC ...) I will be tempted to trade my 2015 XR

Only color changes for the XR
BMW S 1000 XR.

    Style HP: new HP Motorsport colours (Light white/Racing blue metallic/Racing red) including Pro seat with stitched XR-logo (from 09/2017).
    The paint finish Light white/Granite grey metallic/Racing red will no longer be available.

In this case, not the best color scheme for me

I purchased the same one, just in dark blue and red, well, what looked like red on the website.  In person the red was almost orange, and definitely didn't match the red XR emblem.  I just took off the red decals and left the blue.
