    I hope those are LED headlight bulbs.

    They are. Adaptive headlight for cornering is optional, looks complicated and expensive.

    TFT/GPS looks pretty interesting.

    Looks like they have a new shroud on the exhaust pipe, just prior to the muffler. Maybe they redesigned the flapper.

    I see that they decided to paint-match the nose trim.

    They don't mention non leaking brakes, so we'll have to see.

    While I'm very satisfied with my 2018 I'll probably trade eventually for the new model. I always like to give these major upgrades some evaluation time. I'm very curious to see how this new dash works out. Also very interested to hear feedback on the system that takes over the bike during "excessive lean angles". Doesn't sound like something I'd want.

    Perfectly happy with my 2 year old G310GS. I'm too old for a porky bike.

    I’m not seeing in any of the pics a mount location for the Nav VI... Will the TFT and BMW Connected app be the only supported GPS solution? The document linked in post #5 sure makes it sound that way. That’s a bit concerning for those of us who have been less than favorably impressed with the app/TFT combination at the level of development seen on the 2018-2020 bikes.
