Braking and beeing seen by drivers behind you is of essential importance for motorcycle riders, and that’s why BMW Motorrad developed the dynamic brake light. It warns drivers of following vehicles about when the motorcycle in front of them is braking ―even better than standard brake lights.
Currently limited to Europe, the dynamic brake light operates in two steps. Step 1: When the motorcycle slows from speeds above 50 kph (31 mph), the brake light flashes at a frequency of 5 Hertz (Hz). Step 2: When the motorcycle slows to speeds under 14 kph (9 mph), the hazard warning flashers engage, remaining in operation until the motorcycle reaches speeds above 20 kph (12 mph).
The dynamic brake light option is only available in conjunction with ABS Pro, starting on the 2016 R 1200 GS/GS Adventure, S 1000 XR and K 1600 models.
nice, but I would like to see BETTER real lighting. This small back light is just NOT enough.
lit or not lit, it is too small. Just like in the front, 3 lights is best, so for the real, 2 or more lights would be better, too.
