Dynamic Brake Control.
DBC assists you in emergency braking by counteracting the often unwanted gas opera-tion in such an exceptional situation: a control intervention reduces engine torque and at the same time the system increases the braking power at the rear wheel. This results in increased safety and optimal use of braking power to stabilise your bike and shorten the braking distance. For a feeling of supreme confidence when touring.
