    Hmm idk didn't seem that horribly impressive, I'm sure the BMW still handles better around a track. If anything the 1260 was way behind the XR, new V4S was still not quite there, this might just match it. Maybe... Just my opinion

    So they've decided to (nearly, albeit 30bhp short) make the bike the MS fans wanted in the first place  :745: Bet those who bought the first V4MS will be pissed  :232: But circa £25k? Daft money.

    No heated grips or seat.  not sure if race mode is worth it for most.  Here in nj i would pay over $35k out the door after adding heated grips, seats and panniers. thats about $10k more than an XR.  I know the XR heated seat is extra/custom too but thats a lot of cash IMHO

    Also...the more I look at it the less I like the livery.  They made it look like a number plate on the tank with the number "1"  :004:

    Yea the proportions are off, the outgoing 1260 had some decent proportions, although it's been pretty stubby, this just looks out of proportions.

    I road the base model and it was pretty damn good. Even with the 19” wheel it still tipped into corners well - wasn’t sure if that was the counter rotating crank or just very good geometry. Strange thing for me though is I have tried a lot of bikes and always go back to the “bland” inline four. I didn’t click with the V4 motor, they have managed to engineer in character which made it feel a bit rough even though it was dead smooth, strange.

    But the Pikes Peak does look a bit special  :015:

    Loved it when I saw it in the flesh, had an interesting conversation with the guy on the Duke stand at the NEC....


    Could I have it with non electric Ohlins I ask...No he replied so that was the end of that.


    Price wise??? Full loaded GS is similar.
