Sorry for the late chiming in.
I believe there's a place for hard panniers on the S1000RR, I'd say the K1300S style. Reason, many of the sportbike riders maturing and would like to be able to ride their sportbikes farther, especially with the S1000RR being a BMW (touring DNA).
Besides, why not have it as an option? A upper mounting points and lower mounting bars for existing bags. The only problem I see is that the rear sub frame is not made to be strong enough for the potential added weight, being the type of bike it is.
Though I'm personally looking at the big BMW Luggage Roll 2 since the tailbag will be too small.
