Using the BMW controls on the handlebars, the Öhlins system allows the rider to choose between BMW's multiple driving modes and damping levels, along with various spring pre-load settings on the rear shock. But that's not all. In 'Comfort' mode, the Öhlins ECU monitors the bike's speed, and when it exceeds 80kph (49mph) the suspension's damping is automatically altered to the firmer 'Normal' setting. When the speed exceeds 120kph (74mph), the damping is further increased to 'Sport' mode, for a more sporting controllability. When the speeds decrease, the damping reverts back to its original settings through the intermediate 'Normal' mode. This feature makes Öhlins' ESA replacement system the World's first autonomic aftermarket suspension system.
