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)

All you need is to keep the throttle completely still to shift up and down. No need to close the throttle. Now the autoblip will be much more fun! You can follow a vehicle and keep throttle constant,  waiting for the moment you can overtake, and when that moment comes you downshift with autoblip and away you go like a jet!

Yes The 2017+ up/down shift is so much slicker than the Mk 1 - a joy to ride - just gently snick down the gears - the electronics do the rest !
