Starting with Kawasaki Electronic Controlled Suspension, the 43mm Showa cartridge fork has compression and rebound damping controlled by the KECS system, and riders can choose base settings in four different modes—Sport, Road, Rain and Rider (manual). It’s a sophisticated package that measures speed and compression information every millisecond and makes adjustments as necessary. The Showa BFRC lite rear shock also features compression and rebound damping adjustment by way of the system, and allows the rider to electronically adjust preload. KECS has three shock modes to select from—rider only, rider with luggage and rider with passenger and luggage. If things need to be fine-tuned, there’s 10 levels of adjustment to work through.
