You'd want that with a beemer at the least, you'd probably end up using one or both of them!

Great bikes had the urge to get one at one stage as ticks every box. I was looking at screens and mirrors and all other nice bits for a bike i didnt even own haha. Theres some tasty bits for them in Japan of all places pm me if you want links to nice screens and mirrors etc. white looks great go for one has most extras, cruise control etc and after market exhaust fitted as wont be cheap to add on yourself.

One thing that really changes the looks and makes them look so much better is aftermarket bellypan, be first thing id do to it :

More power, slightly lighter frame, autoblipper system (previously just a quickshifter up), cornering ABS, launch control system, lean angle sensitive traction control, pitlane speed limiter.

If you're going 2017+, try and get one with the optional HP forged wheels.

I'd be lost without it tbh.

Sure as they say on the farm, "Better to be looking at, than looking for it!"
