just "stole" a new 2018.5 S1000RR as a "beater bike"
 
So I went to the local BMW dealer with a friend to pick up his new gloves and made one of the most spontaneous purchases ever...

I have a beautiful V4 Speciale but I felt so bad putting almost 2000 miles on it inside of one month that I wanted a 2nd bike... I also wanted a bike I could ride 2 Up.. (girls)..lol

Anyway, I saw a totally loaded up, Akrapovic, all kinds of top end shift gear, etc.. S1000RR in the showroom that they were giving $5000 off (yes $5000).. from $25200 to $20200 and then 0% financing...

I signed the paperwork with in 1 hour and pick it up Saturday.. I will use this is my daily burner and the Ducati on my special rides...

Great and comfortable bike. Congrats

Congrats on the beater, which colorscheme is yours?

I figured they'd heavily discount them since the all new model is coming in may.

I guess it would be good to post some pics... lol.. Problem is this forum limits the size to a ridiculously small number... 19K?? All my pics are like 400K+.. Anyone have a way to do that?

Yes, clearance price got me... I don't need the new version for $8K more!

Fixed...

The links worked, best color of the lot.

0% finance is always a winner in my book. Specially with all the goodies yours has.

My friend picked up the same model in aus with 1400km from a dealer for 20,500 aus dollars. Which is a pretty good deal for down here.


They're a good bike man, especially so if you're thinking of putting decent miles on it.
Ten times the easier commuter than a 1299.

It's a V4 that I ride, which I hear is less harsh than the 1299.... but funny you should mention the 1299... I do want to get a "the last of the V twins" Ducati also!

Oh no way, my bad. How is it!? I havent ridden the new model. I hear good things though!

The 1299 Is notbad, punches hard thats what i love about it most.
Its not like most litre bikes where they start pulling hard at say 6k rpm, this pulls like a train from the start.

I've thought about that, if in future they'll have good resale due to being the last of the twins.. I wonder
