・Motion Track Brake System
The updated Motion Track Brake System combines information of the posture of the vehicle with the front and rear wheel speeds. This allows the ABS to activate not only in a straight line but also when the vehicle is leaning.
・Hill Hold Control System
When the vehicle stops on an upward slope and applies the brakes, this system automatically operates the rear brake for around 30 seconds to prevent the vehicle from backing down the hill even if the rider releases the brake lever/pedal. This allows the rider to focus on a smooth start on a hill.
・Slope Dependent Control System
The new Slope Dependent Control System constantly monitors the posture of the vehicle even when the vehicle is traveling downhill. When the rider operates the brake lever or pedal on a downhill, the electronic control unit controls brake pressure to prevent rear wheel lift.
・Load Dependent Control System
This system supports optimal braking in response to load conditions. The system constantly learns changes in the braking deceleration through the input of hydraulic pressure as the load increases or decreases when riding with a load or in tandem.
・Cruise Control System
The newly equipped cruise control system maintains the set speed without the rider having to operate the throttle-a feature for long-distance touring that helps reduce rider fatigue. The new model features a range of technology such as ride-by-wire throttle system and the newly programmed ECM, which result in an easy-to-use cruise control. Crusing speed can be set from approximately 50km/h to 160km/h at fourth gear or above. A switch on the right handlebars can be pressed to put cruise control into standby, and a selector switch (up/down) on the left handlebars allows the rider to adjust the speed.
・Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector is a system that allows the rider to select from three different output characteristic modes (A, B, and C).
・Traction Control System
An updated traction control system is used to let the rider be in control with more confidence in diverse conditions with less stress and fatigue. The traction control mode is increased to three modes plus off mode for diverse road conditions, or to match the rider’s preference more. The traction control system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speed, throttle position, crank position and gear position. When wheel spin is detected, the system quickly controls power output by managing ignition timing and air delivery.
