From what little I could tell (240p? Seriously?), the rider was dialing in some serious lean angle (big balls + borrowed bike) and being very liberal with the throttle on exit. Probably relying on DTC too much, OR probably had DTC turned off, which is weird that BMW would allow in a demo ride. Another journalist's video on the same track (same demo day?) showed him manually blipping the throttle and making shifts with the clutch. When questioned, he said that the quick shifter was inoperative in that bike. Maybe it's the same bike that had some sort of system failure. Again, weird that BMW wouldn't have taken it out of the rotation. Let's hope BMW didn't hire out traction control to Boeing engineers for this model.
Anyway, this shows very well how much we've come to rely on TC to be able to ride 200hp super bikes like 600s.
