While I like some of the new technology that is being put on motorcycles I'm afraid of a BMW machine sporting the latest and greatest. They don't rank high on my personal list of "trusted brands" with respect to reliability and longevity.
But Ron, they need all the new adopter customers they can find, to save them the trouble of Beta Testing.
Like many of us I suspect, I've been there & won't be repeating the experience - perfectly happy to run with a tried & tested BMW though, if it fits my needs. We have had skyhook, so I'm not sure where this takes us, but I seem to recall they tried something akin to this on the rear of some HP2s
