I am seriously considering buying a new or second hand RS and had a very enjoyable three hour test ride recently on a UK 2016 SE Sport model. I loved the bike except for one thing: I found the rear suspension in 'road' setting to be slightly too hard for me as I have a bad back. When I spoke to the sales rep about this upon returning, he told me that BMW no longer has the 'comfort - normal - sport' settings this year which would soften the rear end enough for me. I have ridden a 2015 R1200GSA previously in 'comfort' mode and found it perfect for me. He didn't know if the 2015 RS retained these options or it was only on the GS/GSA, which I found strange and as it was a Sunday, nobody else was about. He recommended that I contacted BMW UK but they have not replied. Can anyone on the forum help me with this question please? Does the 2015 model have 'comfort - normal - sport' or the same as the 2016 model, 'road and dynamic?' I know I have other options to soften the rear end a bit such as fitting a lower rated spring or buying a non-ESA version (which I don't want to do) and setting it up manually but if it is as easy as sourcing a 2015 model, I'd rather do that. Does anyone know the spring rate of the 2016 shock? Thank you for any replies.
