    Revised Gen 2 for 2023

    With the revised version of the Gen 2 likely coming in as a 2023 model year bike.  My assumption, is that it will get the revised widescreen LCD Screen (bye bye Garmin), and it will most likely have radar and adaptive cruise as option.

    my wish list
    -higher spec, true M version.
    -lose some weight.
    -more OEM hard luggage options
    -a properly sized kick stand.
    -revised seat with less forward slope.
    -smoother gearbox.
    -backlit switches/controls
    -more tuning options in the semi active suspension

    What are the features or changes that you would like to see most?

    I wouldn't mind if it got back some of the Old Gen 1 edge. Then I'd be interested, maybe a bit updated looks that make the tail end a bit more interesting, the Gen 1 had a beautiful tail save for that awful tail light solution. Apart from that, pretty much the same you've been mentioning, sticky/gummy gearbox for me was immediately apparent. Maybe give it shiftcam and tune it for extreme low end performance and similar to now top end, would make for an interesting ride.

    Fully adjustable suspension which you can set up static  rebound, and compression, firmer springs in the forks, comfortable seat.

    Yes, ditto - firmer springs, higher quality rear unit for a larger range of weight.

    I suppose that they are now totally immersed in electronic suspension - A pity.

    For me I dont want or need radar and adaptive cruise as option to me it's taking too much out of the riders controul I hardly ues it on the car.
    Wish list:
    Higher spec, true M version EG: Full akrapovic system, brembo breaks, adjustable levers length
    Sort the Bluetooth so the pasanger can here the SatNat so you can both here the music and the Nav instructions
    May be a better seat range EG: Low, normal, comfily\ touring and Sports
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    Get rid of the awful revving every time you start the bike.

    I agree and add a seat I can hang off in a corner without the hard edge cutting into my butt
