Yes, you can downshift in a similar fashion... see page 84 (Shift Assistant Pro) of your manual.

In case you need, here is an online version of the manual for 2017 S1000R (USA)

Yes the 2017+ bikes have clutchless shifts, up and down.

When downblipping, just close the throttle (or mostly close the throttle, I've found) and away you go.  I find the downblipper to be quite addicting, it's so much fun and machine gun down through the gearbox.

Yes, Up n down shifts all the way. Also provides that amplified addictive popping sound all we S1K owners love :028:

Thank you all for replying! I just wanted to make a 100% sure before I destroyed something.

Lol you definitely wouldn't destroy anything as the bike has a slipper clutch ;)

(not to mention people have been doing clutchless downshifts for decades by doing what the electronics do anyway, rev matching)
