What are the after market options for more aggressive brake pads?

I forgot to mention I have 2021 XR. I don’t see those pads available for 20-21 models

The BMW ones. But hopefully I will be getting the Brembo once they service my caliper recall

My guess is that you will be getting the BMW/Brembo calipers as the Gen 1 bike then, which will also come with brand new pads. If this is the case then the pads I lsted will work.
