Naturally I bought a 17 GS following my RS purchase in 16 , so now i am very vested in the GS without the TFT. AM I sorry I didn't wait .. maybe . But the reality is I've been using the Same Nav V that came with my RS and satisfied myself with the latest BMW Clocks and readouts because that is how they come.
I don't really get why BMW puts so much design into the bodywork and mechanicals of these wonderful machines and always nearly always puts a shit seat on them and in most cases a useless windscreen then caps off the thing you look at most from the seat a cheap looking non pleasing dash arrangement that looks at best homemade. Evidently there are no technical designers in Germany who care about esthetics beyond the bike itself and engines.
I can be objectively critical because as a BMW dedicated rider for most of my riding experience I've never bought but one of them for its looks but rather for its function and efficiency of operation. That said. I would love to have the engineers hire an interior designer or someone who can create a dash panel worthy of the rest of the bike complete with all the current information arranged in a more esthetically balanced and readable configuration.
