One could expect some major changes in the 14 model year. Note Husquvarna has a 900 cc engine for example.
To be safe I would recommend waiting till atleast the 2015 model year.
Life is too short to spend time waiting for the perfect bike. It seems that it will be here "tomorrow'!
Just do it!
Again, has BMW done anything to address the stator issue?
