Just bought a bmw s1000rr with out the abs and traction control. The reasons behind this is that you got to turn them off if you are going to do a trackday because you cannot you the bikes full potential if you have every thing turned on. On the road I would never you it. all the bikes I've had they never had all this electronic bull shit so why should I start now. After talking to sales men before I bought the beemer They thought the electronics package for the bike was just sales gimics.

I have just bought an 1198s, and i can definately say that I can ride it with more confidence knowing that the back up is there.
Having said that, never slid the back of my VFR 1200, but used the ABS a few times, but then I put that down to them being overly sensititve.
Still, if your riding 17K of bike on a trackday, at least you are not going to highside !

not for me , to much crap on bikes now
why do we need all the stuff thats on the new bikes ? you may say im to old ! you maybe right but all i know is next step will be computer controled bikes .
if you cant ride a bike without it you should not be rideing it anyway , ? on the track maybe but for the roads no way .
im glad to see johnathon palmer has said all elctrics will not be used next year on bsb bikes , then we shall see who the riders are & it will be better raceing all round

Why not..if it helps in the wet and maybe when you're over zealous so be it. KR trained GP prospects in the dirt on 80cc dirtbikes...everyone should know what it's like to slide ...bottom line is Traction Control is in your right hand
