smoothly. Additional turning of the throttle
grip is hardly required.
Stopping on a steeper slope increases the
amount of brake pressure built up. The
brake is a bit slower to release when rid-
ing off. More torque is required to ride off,
making additional turning of the throttle
grip necessary.
Behavior when the vehicle is rolling back
or slipping
The brake pressure increases if the vehicle
is rolling with Hill Start Control active.
If the rear wheel slips, the brake is re-
leased again after Approx. 3.3 ft (Approx.
1 m). This prevents the vehicle from slip-
ping with a locked rear wheel, for exam-
Releasing the brake when switching off
the engine or during timeout
Hill Start Control is deactivated when the
engine is switched off using the emergency-
off switch, when the side stand is folded out,
or after it times out (10 minutes).
In addition to indicator and warning lights,
the following vehicle behavior should make
the rider aware that the Hill Start Control is
Brake warning jerk
The brake is released briefly and is imme-
diately reactivated.
This causes a jerking behavior that the
rider can feel.
The fully integral ABS brake system sets
a speed of Approx. 1...1 mph (Approx.
1...2 km/h).
The rider must brake the vehicle manually.
After two minutes, or when the brake is
applied, the cruise control is deactivated
When the ignition is switched off, the
holding pressure is built up immedi-
ately and without brake warning jerk.
with Adaptive Lights
How do the adaptive headlights work?
The standard installed dimming unit in the
headlight consists of two reflectors that gen-
erate low beams using LED. Ride height sen-
sors at the front and rear wheel suspension
provide data for ongoing headlight distance
control. Thanks to the pitching compensa-
tion, the light always illuminates the optimal,
preset area when riding on straight stretches
of road, regardless of the riding conditions
and load status. Using Adaptive Headlights,
the dimming unit additionally rotates around
an axis, depending on the angle, and com-
pensates for the angle of roll of the vehicle.
The angle of rotation is 70° (±35°).
In addition to the pitching compensation, the
low-beam headlight learns to compensate
for the angle at which riding takes place.
Both movements are overlaid so that a high-
light in the curve results. This results in sig-
nificantly improved illumination of the road
when riding around curves and thus an enor-
mous increase in active riding safety.
