The winglets on the front fairing now generate up to 10kg of downforce, depending on the rider’s speed. This extra weight helps counteract the wheelie tendency during acceleration. Plus, it means the traction control doesn’t require more intervention. Thus, helping drivers achieve faster lap times.
The rear has been redesigned to be lighter and sportier. The license plate frame is now shorter, too. As accessories, there is a new hump cover and an endurance seat.
BMW will now offer a standard M battery and USB charging socket. The 6.5-inch TFT screen now has more functions and a new tachometer display. The TFT screen can be controlled using the multifunction controller located on the left handlebar.
