Yeah...I don't think I'd put any one of those near the top of my wish list.

Some nice bikes, but just not what I'm looking for in two-wheeled transport...

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full.
All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

The F range updates were expected but I see they are still testing the market with that Concept R18/2 big beast. I gather getting an oil/air cooled engine through future noise/emissions will be a bit of a challenge, along with oil foaming in a big boxer twin layout.

Best they devote more energy into keeping the existing customer base happy & park some of the more outlandish ideas for the time being.

Glad to see the updated to the S1000XR. Colors are not for me. However, the bike is one of the best sellers for BMW. To compete it is said Ducati is going to make a V4 MultiStrada- OMG!!. Best,

I would be interested in seeing where the pricing comes in on the S1000XR, and the 900XR, seeing if it can compete with Yamaha's Tracer 900GT, especially in pricing, which is 13k.

I'm with @Meese , nothing exciting for me. I'm holding out for a shift-cam K1600.

I had half thought that with the new Goldwing launch BMW might have decided to give a few updates to the K1600 range, but no, they launched a cruiser that sounds like a moped with a burst exhaust

Nothing in for me, I have a bad feeling about the K1600 future, would have expected some updates like TFT screens and new audio, but no. Lets see if they pull something together for the actual model 2021 in fall 2020. If not it could very well be the closing bell for the BigK.
These EU5 regulations for motorcycles or the extreme targets for energy efficiency for cars will take out low volume vehicles like the K1600 and affordable subcompact cars because the specific costs to reduce fuel consumption pushes the the prices up too far.
