    Hi all new to the group and the s1000xr I've just bought one and expecting delivery next week and I was wondering is the warranty transferable ie does it come with the bike as I read some where the owner has to transfer the warranty to the new buyer, the bike is been sold by a regular dealer not bmw so just wondering how this would work or have I got the wrong end of the stick,cheers

    Both manufacturer (3 years on bikes sold from somewhen around Aug/Sept 2019 on) and approved used warranty (2 years on specific bikes sold through the scheme at a authorised BMW dealer) goes with the bike. However if you didn’t buy it from a BMW dealer then it’s unlikely BMW know you own it, and you won’t know if there is any warranty or how much remains. Usually the previous owner transfers it but that’s for private sales. You could ask your local BMW dealer or contact BMW UK directly.

    It's a 2021 so looks like it should have the 3 years then, I will have a ride down the nearest dealers when it comes and see if it can be put in my name as the contact cheers

    I bought an 11 month old gen 2 from a non BMW dealer and I phoned the BMW warranty line and was told the warranty goes with the bike and that if I call up for a breakdown or want to make a warranty claim it should be no problem as the warranty and breakdown covers is attached to the bike not the owner.

    Thanks Dave I'm still waiting on a delivery date at the minute so will give them a call when I get my hands on the bike.

    One other thing that’s worth checking with a newer bike is whether there is a service inclusive package on it - they’re 3 or 5 years and also go with the bike. Could save a bit of money!
