No ta.

Absolutely do not want traction control.

I want 12,000 mile service intervals, automatic/hydraulic valve adjusters, tyres that last 20,000 miles, shaft drive, 100mpg, three cylinders, enough poke to maintain 90mph two up with luggage uphill into a headwind at less than 5,000 rpm, adjustable handlebars, seat and footrests, secure internal storage for two XL FF helmets, a fairing that works, stainless steel exhaust, ABS, analogue speedo and revcounter, think that's about it.

Oh, price not more than £7000.

Seriously........

.............i am a bit at odds as to "who" actually poses this question ?

Give it as an optional extra (track day setting) but come on, seriously.

Yes but...

I had a nasty little rear end slide on some loose chippings that nearly caught me out the other day - for me, traction control is a useful safety feature. However I don't want this to significantly increase the price of bikes (which it inevitably will).

I love all the views coming from people that have never used it. Jeeeeees, talk about 'stuck in the times'.

The reason traction control is now filtering down into sportsbikes is A) because they now have the technology to do it, and B) because that bike then gets homologated to be used in its road trim for superstock racing.

Its called progress guys. And if progress didnt happen, you would all still be riding around on your shit box GPZ's etc etc.

If you dont like it, dont buy a bike that has it. If you dont have the option, then just put the control on its minimum setting or off.......and highside yar ass to the moon.

But dont write it off if you have never tried it.

Yes... but only on the proviso that I can switch it off. Sliding the rear and wheelies are some of the few joys I have left in life. I'd only really want traction control for the wet.

I don't think it has a place in motorsport.
