Thanks for posting. Don't take it personally. We often see posts about new models that turn out to be based on unfounded rumors, so people have grown skeptical.Europe, no info on color, it was only "color change".
I bought new bike 2 days ago based on info there wont be significant changes next year. I can wait months, but no years .
Really don't care if you don't believe me
I haven't tried ACC on a motorcycle, but I am leery. Traffic is heavy where I am (Southern California/Los Angeles) and opportunities to use CC on the motorcycle are limited. I would try ACC on the Goldwing, but I have trouble imagining it would be useful with cars so close and constantly moving in and out. Also, unlike driving a car, ACC in a motorcycle is philosophically opposed to the reason I ride, which is to be more in contrrol, not less.No worries .
Btw how do you compare adaptive CC in car with one on motorcycle?
I drove few cars with ACC, owned one bike ( KTM SAS) and drove latest RT and really cant compare usage scenario. In car I pretty much relax with ACC, on two wheels I could never be remotely relaxed when using ACC.
I do like it but while I use it in car every time I hit highway, on motorcycle I use it very rarely.. Especially if I want to be faster than cars, which is most of the time/always .
I agree.I think ACC is meant to be "stick to one lane and relax". Pretty different compared to how I (we) drive bikes.
On bike I want to be as fair away possible from cars/trucks. And ACC works best if it has vehicle in front to track. Also, ACC makes sense with lane keeping assist, something many cars now have. Bikes... not sure we will ever see something like that
While I used it on 2 wheels both implementations KTM and BMW worked great (AFAIK same sensors/producer (Bosch)), but I used it just occasionally.
In car I turn it on "second I enter lane on highway", sometimes even in city traffic (Volvo V90, great ACC with Pilot assist lane keeping) but on bike...
As I said, I just don't find it that much usable on bikes as is in cars, and it doesn't seem appropriate to compare ACC as used on cars with same tech on bikes My 2 cents.
