Makes sense and similarly M2/M3/M4 should come standard w/manual seatsweight and function.
track bikes dont need push to start as many use the relocation EWS module hardware. Push to start has an additional wiring harness and it is complicated programming inside the ECU.
I have it on my F900XR and it’s nice to keep the key in my pocket. In fact same with the cars. It’ll be strange using a key again.No thanks. I know I know. XYZ has keyless ignition and it's been reliable. Something that simple, I'd rather keep old fashioned. A buddy of mine with a brand new KTM Superduke was having all sorts of issues with his keyless ignition on a group ride we went on.
Many club racer rules have must be self starting.Makes sense and similarly M2/M3/M4 should come standard w/manual seats
Thought if they really want to reduce weight, real race bikes not street, wouldn't the remove the starter and battery and like karts have an external starter?
Actually, you don't need the 'key' to open the fuel tank (wife has keyless GS), but you do still need the key to remove the seat.You'd still need a key to open the fuel tank.
Not with a TWM quick action gas capKeyless ignition on a bike is a bad idea.You'd still need a key to open the fuel tank.
Better to keep it in the ignition than taking up pocket space.
This. I loved the feature on my 1250. Didn't need the key for anything besides opening the key matched luggage, or the seats.Actually, you don't need the 'key' to open the fuel tank (wife has keyless GS), but you do still need the key to remove the seat.
I have a keyless ignition on my Harley, and I absolutely love it. Very convenient, hope on and go. It absolutely ridiculous the BMW does not have it as an option or in a package.I once left my keyless ride key in the passenger seat release barrel for an entire day of riding, so lucky it didn't fall out on the highway because I was a very long way from home.
