Just found out there is a MXR due to be released in the second quarter of 2024.
Does anyone have insight as to when they will arrive?
 
I had a deposit on one, but changed my mind before I got a delivery date. I have heard from a bloke in Belgium that his is expected around June or so. Another guy in CA was told "end of summer" for US deliveries. Not sure that's worth much, but that's what I have heard so far.
 
Have a deposit at two separate dealers . One told me my XR is set for production but no ETA.. once I have a vin I’ll believe it
 
Just an FYI: A friend of mine near Asheville switched from the M version to S version because the M version has no bag mounts and only comes with carbon fiber wheels; those were no-gos for him. I saw his S version at Eurosport last week; it's ready for pickup now.

Latest info says the MXR will be shipping within the next couple of weeks. Jerry, thanks for the suggestion but it is the beauty of the M that makes it desireble for me. I have a SXR with 60K on it along with a RTW with 80K. Love them both but the MXR is just a work of art.

I didn't mean it as a suggestion; just an FYI. Even if I'm not drawn to want one, I look forward to seeing one. 👍
 
I'd love to see one but doubt a unit like that would be on the dealer floor for long, if at all. I really like my Gen 1's, but would never give up my Gen 2. Aw hell, lov'em all!

For a moment there, I thought you were Scott R. Up until recently, he kept a red RT, red XR and blue/white F850GSA in an Asheville storage unit. He has since moved them to a house there. My own stable is same number, but physically smaller (on purpose)...

My Little Giant (GS) looks markedly different after 24,686 miles of BDRs and the Trans America Trail. The pic below is on the TAT near Wyoming Peak in the Wyoming Range in, you guessed it, Wyoming:

It does look better dirty, but then I don't hate dirty. I hate when she's clean. Clean means I'm keeping her from her element. I hate doing that unless I'm working on her. She's clean now - her fork tubes are at Andreani for installation of their Misano Evo cartridges. As soon as those are back, I'll install Rally Raid's Level 2 shock and a handful of other upgrades and fixes - all prep for the coming season.
 
Really wish they would put the bag mounts on the M version. I'd upgrade in a heartbeat if they did, love the looks, well, why not have a few more ponies, right? But no cases is a "hard no" for me. If I'm going to give up the cases, I might as well go to a full on crotch rocket, the thing I love about the XR is that it's built for long rides, but a lot of that utility is because I can carry stuff with me (clothes, tools in case something breaks, some food and drinks/etc). I'm not going back to wearing a backpack. The top case is ugly on the XR (IMHO) but it's SO useful, just can't see myself ever owning another bike without one unless it's a track toy or short range rocket.

Actually, you info is a couple years out of date: I already have an MXR. I've had it since September 26th, 2020, when I took delivery on my 2021 Light White Non-Metallic/Racing Blue Metallic/Racing Red Non-Metallic S1000XR Motorsport. To prove my claim, attached is the original ad by Motorcycles of Charlotte, a picture from when I took delivery, and a picture with her proper M-Badges installed. In any event, the ad is real, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it. 😇

I'm only claiming that I have a "2021 S1000 XR Motorsport" because, as I said above, "the ad is real, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it. 😇"
