And when the coded plug is used, the individual Dynamic ESA setting is preserved over a change of riding mode. Without the coded plug all settings are set to default, e.g. when turning off the ignition. ABS and ASC can be manually disengaged by the rider in all modes. With the coded plug inserted, the systems remain deactivated when restarting the bike after having turned off the ignition before.
Wow. I think that's the first bike offering this. Nice for some people.
I really, really like what I'm reading about this new GS. It becomes more and more clear that I'll get one next year.
