This is absurd.MadMax said:We don't need traction control...i believe this is one reason why gp and sbk isn't as exciting...thankfully f1 has decided to go away with it and i'm pretty sure sbk and gp will do the same. The danger part of riding appeals to me a bit, nothing like locking up the rear to straighten u out and make u a better rider.

the 4 stroke era would require just as much skill if the bike was as raw. But with the TC and other added electronic they are not unfortunately. A 990cc MotoGP bike with no TC would be awesome! Instead we get a 800cc TC bikeandyM said:I wish MotoGP would go back to the 500 days. It took a real man with real skills to ride a 500 to victory.
Well...when my tires get to where they need replacing...I like to send them to the grave with a smokey funeral! :bananaThere is no valid reason whatsoever when riding on public roads to NEED to light up the rear.

If you refer to the A,B,C mode in the Suzuki 1000K7 that is just different engine maps, no big deal. What Kawa is doing is actually sensing rear wheel slippage and stopping it by cutting the needed amount of power to the engine. If you ever highsided you would understand...Choco said:this is nothing new....yamaha and suzuki have similar systems in place, a rather primitive traction control.
