Think you will find that we all have 2015 models.  Lets face it, is actually is 2015, and most were ordered in 2014.  I think almost everyone's bikes were built in June and July.

The 2016 model has just be released, and does have the flashing dynamic brake light.  Normally 'next year' models appear on the market around November-December

I would guess that those recently ordered bikes stand a chance of being 2016 models.

Picked up my 2016 on 4th Sept.

I believe they started manufacture August.

Nope, BMW launched the XR as a 2016 model, slightly earlier than they normally release the next year models. They said that there wouldn't be a 2015 model of XR. The flashing brake light is regarded as an additional feature, just like heated grips that work, and a bike with less vibrations will be another updated feature later in the year! :008:
