I've got a s1000rr
It's a 2011 which I've had for about 18 months
I've had loads of problems Inc top engine rebuild
How anyone can call it a premium product I'll never know
Previously I've owned gsxr''s for over 20 years and never had any real problems
Everything is 3/4 times the price to fix also
Example: front wheel bearings gsxr €40
BMW = €168
Also my starter motor went and you can't buy the brushes like you can with suzuki you have to buy the complete unit €460, a complete rip off

it sucks because BMW bikes are very sexy looking and on paper those things are awesome. However, my experience with BMW (cars and bikes) has shown me they are not very reliable. More than any other brand, I hear people tell me how some very expensive part needs repair when its just out of warranty....myself included. BMW is the perfect example of how some of the new technologies they are sticking in their bikes dont necessarily result in better motorcycle....especially if you cant ride it because its getting fixed.

Totally agree
I bought it because I loved the look of it and it always gets great write up's but that's just journalists riding it for an hour or so
It's a different story when you own it and have to pay huge money for servicing and parts fail way too often
It's just not worth the hassle and expense
