Did you know?

That your smart­phone can con­trol this su­per­bike?

Motorcycle Monthly - - First Ride -

The sys­tem is called V4-MP and via an app and the smart­phone’s GPS sys­tem the elec­tron­ics tell the bike where it is, via this you can then get the bike to al­ter trac­tion con­trol, anti-wheelie and other func­tions for each in­di­vid­ual cor­ner of a track as you want.

The sys­tem will also be able, in time with an up­grade that is still in devel­op­ment, to colour the screen on your phone as you ride so that it acts like a rid­ing coach to help you get the per­fect lap. An all-red screen as you hit the brakes for a cor­ner means you’re rid­ing too ag­gres­sively and need to slow up a tad and smooth off to keep the time low, green means you need to go for it more to find time.

The sys­tem also knows the lean an­gle, the throt­tle per­cent­age at dif­fer­ent open­ings and how hard you’re ac­cel­er­at­ing on each part of a myr­iad of cir­cuits around the world.

Tell your phone which track you’re on and it’ll change set-up for each cor­ner as you ride!
