I would give it a year as it'll take a while before reports start to come in as mileage builds. Maybe the 2015 model Explorer is your best bet because by then we will have had a year of data on the reliability of the new BMW1200 and you'll be able to compare as well as test ride. With your current stable the wait shouldn't be too painful
