The Smart EC software controlling for this steering damper is already pre-programmed into the Yamaha R1M’s SCU. The steering damper is controlled by the Smart EC algorithms and reacts on speed as well as acceleration.
It constantly changes the damping settings in real time to suit the current riding conditions in the best possible way. The already excellent mechanical function in the steering damper is further improved by the Smart EC
algorithms and the result is an ideal platform for any rider who wish to improve the performance on road as well as reduce the lap times on track.
