In SA the R is fitted with crash bars and I'm assuming the 21" front will also be more expensive

Also there has been mention of the rear foot peg height. I've had to remove the grab handles as my wife who has short legs found the grab handles pressed on her legs.

In the Settings menu there is an option "Octane 80", can anyone explain this? I thought you used the "Bad Fuel Dongle" for low grade fuel so why would you need an option as the bike would know the dongle was fitted?
Oh yes I saw that as well and what about the " Quick Shift" option is the bike already fitted with quick shifter?

Is anyone find very odd to fill the petrol tank. It is very difficult to put petrol in the tank as it has got a weird aluminium bend just inside the tank where you fill it. It takes bloody ages to fill it . The petrol pump doesn't like it keep cancelling the filling very annoying .

Yes,. :-)))) it looks like the same system as 990, but this time with only one cap. We carry the petrol on both sides as it was on the 990.

Progress. Also, the benefits of having a detuned engine in respect to its original application.

^ This

Most modern machines have wider service intervals

The main reason for longer service intervals is not the detuning of machines. It is the result of better materials. They speak of "diamond-like" coating on the finger followers.

Now, what the detuning does is better rideability and better fuel consumption.

I'm sure you have a point, but then again, If I ride an engine at 80% of its power wouldn't that mean that valve adjustments would be less frequent than if I ride it at 90% ?

not only the valve clearence majority of the bike needs less servicing in whole year. this is due to better engineering and parts. used to have Ducati Diavel Carbon and only service every 7500miles which is sort of once a year for me. i am sure in the future the bikes will be even go further about servicing they might even reach to 10000 miles or 12000 miles services
