Intelligent shifting is just the tip of the electronics iceberg. Three ride modes—Rain, Sport, and Race—come standard, each with Automatic Stability Control (ASC, or traction control), ABS, and power-delivery responses tailored to suit prevailing riding conditions. An optional Race package adds lean-angle-enabled Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and two additional riding modes—Slick and User, the latter custom-configured by the rider—plus launch control, a pit-lane speed limiter, and, for the first time on any sportbike, cruise control. As they say on late-night TV, that’s not all: The Dynamic option package adds DDC electronic suspension that instantly and automatically adjusts damping rates in response to real-time riding conditions. DDC offers three baseline settings—Road, Dynamic, and Track—to coordinate with each standard ride mode, and suspension response can be softened or stiffened seven steps in either direction on the fly via a handlebar switch. BMW just gets the rider interface.
