2007 GT Automatic Stability Control
BMW has announced that they are going to come out with Automatic Stability Control (ASC) on the 2007 K1200GT sometime after the first of the year. I currently have one on order that is scheduled to finish production this week and be here in 4-5 weeks (hopefully). Iím having a hard time deciding if the new traction control might be worth waiting 5-6 months for delivery.
The only specís Iíve seen say the traction control system will allow for an "acceptable level" of rear tire spinning and can be activated / deactivated while riding. Rear wheel spinning is controlled through retarding the spark or suppressing individual injects if a higher level of control is needed. No idea what the pricing will be for this addition.
Iím not normally a person that would be spinning the rear tire under most normal circumstances, but rain slick or rough roads could be a different circumstance.
What are everyoneís thoughts on this new option?
