BMW Motorrad Makes ASC Retrofittable

BMW ABS Upgrade

The motorcycle rider assistance system ASC (Automatic Stability Control) has been one of the most popular special equipment features in works for years.

This is because BMW Motorrad’s anti-slip control system limits the drive torque in relation to the nature of the road surface and therefore the friction coefficient.

The result: no more rear wheel spin, more efficient power transmission and thus significantly increased active riding safety.

If regulatory intervention of the electronic system is not desired – on the race track for example – the rider can simply deactivate it at the press of a button, even during travel.

In the R 1200 GS models by BMW Motorrad, the ASC also features a special terrain function which is adapted to the slip conditions on loose surfaces such as sand and gravel.

The change between the road and the terrain setting is conveniently made by means of a switch on the handlebar instrument panel.

This innovative anti slip function ASC can now be retrofitted in the following BMW motorcycles with Integral ABS II as follows:

R 1200 GS from chassis number ZS98694

R 1200 GS Adventure from chassis number ZN98790

R 1200 R from chassis number ZS14531

R 1200 RT from chassis number ZR60266

R 1200 ST from chassis number ZL85554

K 1200 S from chassis number ZR895526

K 1300 S without limitation

K 1200 R from chassis number ZN21739

K 1300 R without limitation

K 1200 GT from chassis number ZN71575

K 1300 GT without limitation
