Ek dink die tegnologie is baie goed en baie veilig ook.  Die verskil teenoor 20 jaar terug is die spoed waarteen "slegte nuus" versprei.

Ek glo enige fabrikaat sal eers 'n deuglike ondersoek instel voor hulle sal besluit of dit nodig is vir 'n re-call.

Ek dink nie dit is sleg nie, hoe anders sal die fabrikate vinnig agterkom indien daar dalk wel 'n probleem is waaraan hulle moet aandag gee, wat wel 'n probleem is is fake news.

I am old school and don't like to much technology but it does save lives when bikes are involved.  A almost red brand has over 2500 dealers world wide and if they did a 10 000km test on a certain bike at each dealer that would be 25 000  000 km of combined testing in a very short period of time so imagine how much data head office has about Nonekings bike .

I'm sure they crash more in modern MotoGP than in the 80's 90's so I'm still skeptic when it comes to traction control and ride modes on motorcycles

What it says on the left there. "Old school = Old's cool."

And down below. "Two wheels, an engine and a place to sit."

My 2c.  :biggrin:
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

Modern tech is very reliable, or rather, it should be.

It is the shameless outsourcing to inferior countries for components that recklessly put riders at risk.

KTM should just build these things in the same location as the 250/350/450/500

Or perhaps stick to what works; build offroad bikes

Because everything bigger than 510cc has issues.

The problem is the manufacturers are all trying to be your mother by looking over you with safety tech. This is partly driven by marketing and the beancounters (the enemy of engineers).
Engineers would give you a simple on/off button for all this crap so you can enjoy the bike the way it is supposed to be enjoyed. But they get forced into developing these stupid ABS modes etc.
Software is only as good as the weakest link. This dude found the weakest link.

I know i make this stuff for a living.
I used to be called Captain Slow but then i got Zef
Most people say "Be like Elon" or "Be like Bill". I say "Be like Pablo" :biggrin:

Ok,  we all know this thread is merely a "decoy" for the AT lock-up thread... >:D :P
But herewith my 2 cents:
Technology is generally to our benefit, although I feel it is going a bit overboard in some cases.
As a general rule of thumb: BMW is years ahead of the rest with reliable state of the art technology - especially in terms of electronics - personally I'm not fond at all of their boxer engines, unless it is utilised in a retro bike like the R9T series and the new 1800's.
The Japs on the other hand - especially Honda and Yamaha - is renowned for bullet-proof mechanicals, not top outputs, but more than enough!
The rest floats all over the place, with some bright moments here and there...

Now if only BMW and say Honda can co-operate and give us a combined effort, we may have the perfect adv bike at last!!! :patch:

While on the topic - the new Black/Red 2022 AT is really good looking!!! :drif:
