Just placed my order
on: September 07, 2016, 08:09:39 PM
I am Dave from Derbyshire, I have always had sports bikes and for the last 5 years the Bmw S1000rr, HP4 and now another S1000rr. I test rode the XR when they first came out and loved the bike.
As I am a little short in the leg, I did not order one.
They now offer the low suspension mod so I have taken the plunge and placed an order for the sport SE with a set of panders and top box, as they are on offer.
Just got to wait for it to be built, I understand that the factory are not building the XR, RR or R as they are setting up for the euro 4 emissions. been told it will be 6-10 weeks so got to hope for some late summer sun.
I am also keeping the RR, but this may be sold if the XR is getting all the use.

Hi Dave and welcome.
You say you've always had sports bikes- well you will still have one when you get your XR.  It's a sports bike for the hip replacement generation!

I still have the RR and the XR is due for collection in march 17, if the RR does not get used then it will be sold on.
