BMW’s Dynamic Damping Control gathers input from a number of systems including the ECU, wheel-speed sensors, tilt/roll sensors and spring travel sensors located on the fork and shock. This data creates a comprehensive picture of how the motorcycle is interacting with the road surface at any given moment, then alters compression and rebound damping accordingly. A variable-ring aperture alters the shock-valve openings to increase or decrease fluid passage, effectively changing the damping characteristics. BMW has said nothing about the software running the system, so it’s unclear how many times per second the system will sample data. Or whether the front and rear suspension “communicate” with each other so the rear suspension, for example, can anticipate obstacles that the front has already encountered. These capabilities are presumably being refined now.
