Thanks Windy for your comments.  I have a 2018 S1000R and having a huge problem with my DDC.  I made the mistake of trying to set the Sag without having the engine on.   The DDC seems to be not working.  So I took my bike in and their reset the DDC, which should have brought the DDC back to working but didn't.  I found a post about the same problem and forwarded this info onto the dealer.  I have not heard back from them yet as to when to bring the bike back in.  But it got me thinking on why BMW changed the DDC from S/N/H to Road and Dynamic.  I am hoping they fix my DDC and it gets back to the way it was when I rode it out of the dealership.  I really though the suspension was awesome.

Ever get your issue sorted out?

Hi Munch,
My bike is still at the dealership.   They first reset the entire system and the DDC worked for about 5miles and then stopped.  So its an intermittent problem that BMW has to work with my dealers service department to go through the system and see what is happening.  Its such a complicated system and frustrating all the way around.

My original post was asking if anyone thinks there is a material difference between the DDC system performance between the 2015/2016 model to the 2017/2018 model.  Ive ridden both and to me, the older version in Sport is much more firm and responsive then Dynamic on the 2017/2018.   Its disappointing. I bought the 2018 after riding my friends 2016 bike.  I want the option to be as firm as possible and the older bike seems better.

If you want it as firm as possible, also set the bike for carrying a passenger and it'll throw you out of the seat at every opportunity, even (at speed) on gentle undulations on dual carriageways...I did exactly that in error and it was terrible, to me anyway..
