Hi peeps
Just thought I’d introduce my self, live in not so sunny Brighton
Currently own z1000sx, looking to upgrade to the new s1000XR TE  next year, just need to sell my bike first,
I do have a couple of questions/favour to ask,
Where I store my bike is very narrow so I was wondering if anyone who has the new model , would you be able to tell me what the width of the bike is at the widest point which I believe is the handle bars,
 And my other question is do you have to buy the BMW panniers for the 2020 with them being intergrated fittings, or is anyone else  making panniers yet that fit on to the bike
Any advice would be great

The bars on the 2020 are narrower than on previous models, but I don’t have a figure for that.

Currently - only BMW panniers will fit, but you can expect Givi, Shad, SW Motech etc to have something by Spring 2021, I think.

I suspect their current panniers will be same as now, with just different frames.

Brighton?  Not sure what the roads are like there, but you are nice and handy for the tunnel to France.  :028:
