    I have a ‘21 RT and am thoroughly enjoying the bike. I like the radar cruise control, adds a bit of safety IMO. The TFT has great promise and I await the major update scheduled for September that is supposed to address connectivity issues. I don’t find it reliable enough to depend on it through a trip of any duration. Fortunately all of my multi-day trips are with someone who also has a Nav 6, which I program with the same routes and when the TFT stops working they take over. I have yet to have a multi-hour trip where I did not lose connectivity. I would have liked a rear radar like Ducati for blind spot monitoring. Like all things mechanical a work in progress and different strokes…I also would have taken the triple black over the white I have.

    It could be the pic is shows a Hayes caliper with the BMW logo photoshopped out because they haven't locked down the caliper supplier. Be wary of reading too much into a picture in an announcement advertisement.

    What twisted logic does one use to arrive at a conclusion that BMW would use a Brembo caliper on one side and some other manufacturers product on the other side?

    Seriously?
    The only dumb question is the unasked question!

    If you're looking at the photos from the Motorrad blurb...the Brembo on the wheel left side is on a 2022 RS and the gold caliper on the wheel right side with no name is on a 2022 RT.

    I was wondering what John was talking about.
