      No sports suspension for the Malaysian market. Confirmed by BMW HQ. Adaptive high control only available on the tramuntana (green touring version at full price)
      No white color, no enduro pro option, well “Boleh” on the paper but “Malaysia dealer” in reality.

    They remove the crashed bar & advertise it as weight reduction.
    Then maybe sell it as optional assessories.

      Nope. They reduced motor weight, frame weight and 1 liter from the tank. Crash bar is just optional accessories as usual. Lithium battery and smaller exhaust also help…
