On a slightly separate issue, are the brakes linked on the '15?
I had a k1300s which had linked brakes and you could feel the rear foot brake being depressed if you applied the front brake. I may have been imagining it but was convinced I felt the same thing the other day on s1krr? It may have been in rain mode...
Well if it's only a software update, I think it would definitely be worthwhile.
Does the BMW have sufficient axis sensors to be able to improve lean angle ABS like those with the IMU (eg. 15 R1)?
Awesome. Well for the likes of RAIN/SPORT modes I'd say this would be a pretty good idea. Nuthin' worse than coming unstuck on a bit of gravel or a damp patch that you didn't see.It does indeed. HP4 has ABS Pro after all.
The bike needs to know roll inputs to tune the DDC too

Plus, I doubt the software adds that much weight :laugh:
Correct - in slick if you step on the rear brake the wheel can lock up.I found this in the 2015 press release
"Rear-wheel lift detection is deactivated in “Slick” mode for maximum braking performance on the track. The ABS function at the rear wheel is also deactivated to allow perfectly executed braking drifts into a bend"
So only the rear wheel is out of action
