    No more Keyless or LED lighting

    I am Looking at trading my Gen 1 Triple black for a Gen 2 Triple black, with delivery in March so as to get a 22 plate.  However the dealer has advised me that I should take their current stock model, as it will come with the Keyless ride and LED lights which apparently will not become unavailable soon due to a world wide shortage of super conductors. This will remain in place until further notice from BMW.

    Anybody heard of this, or is it as I suspect a load of dealer bollocks.

    if the triple black is a March delivery, its already been made. So this doesnt make sense at all.

    Depends how important keyless ride and led's are to you. Seems implausible, but he may not be lying about the semiconductors...

    Try calling a few different dealers and see what they say. If several give the same story then there may be some truth in it.

    I thought the shortage is in chips, and there are plenty of those in the TFT,  and the nearly umpteen  modules on the bike. ABS, ASR, RDC, main controller, LED lighting control system, etc. Keyless is simply a ring antenna with an amplifier. I think the dealer wants to sell that bike...

    If it has a superconductor in it no wonder they are struggling with delivery.  :002:

    I assume they are trying to get a February registration?

    You are being played. Sales people get extra incentives to sell bikes in stock and registered ASAP. 

    Why can't you take the stock bike and have it registered in March? It's just over 2 weeks time?
