Are they still saying it is DDC (as opposed to Dynamic ESA)?

Wow...this is clearly a step backwards....IMHO!  They've taken away the rider's ability to tailor the suspension (however rudimentary the original was) and basically said "you don't know what you want, we're smarter than you, trust us".

Was really hoping to see a move in the direction of the RR (however imperfect) for suspension adjustability.

This is disappointing.  Hopefully some new owners will chime in here and tell us we're mistaken and that "this is how it really is".
Why is common sense so uncommon?

Yeah, it's still called DDC.  It is strange that every other manufacturer is moving toward more user customization, BMW decides less is better.

The new rider's manuals, even the English US spec, are finally available but only at the Germany motorrad site.  Get with the program, motorrad USA!

From that excerpt it looks like there are 7 potential damping settings (1 thru 7 with 4 being standard for rebound - at the rear).

Dunno?  Like to see the few pages before and after this one.

Of course they have. They're German.

For non-ddc, yeah.

Thanks Bill.  I revert back to my original post...this is unacceptable.

Maybe they'll enhance the functionality through an Apple iPhone app, where you'll have access to various DDC customization settings, for a small monthly subscription fee, of course.  :008:

From Roadster with Superbike capabilities it went to Roadster with Superbike capabilities but Touring limitations.
Guess BMW doesn want this bike to be the perfect hooligan we want it to be??

So looks like the new R not only lost the damping modes but also the on the fly capability to adjust them along with load?
