The 5-axis (3-axis acceleration, 2-axis angular velocity) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), located close to the machine’s centre of gravity is the bike’s nerve centre, constantly interpreting roll, yaw and lean angle.
Information on wheel speed, engine rpm, plus brake and throttle position, are also gathered from the other sensors and, on the SP and SP2—depending on the suspension mode selected by the rider-optimal compression and rebound damping force are then applied, for total suspension control at different speeds.
On the brakes
Rear Lift Control (RLC) helps keep the back wheel under control when braking hard and late into corners. The ABS is tuned for track use, and manages braking force into corners with reduced intervention the high speeds generated on a racetrack.
