Currently BMW expands active suspension that can adjust the character of damping according to road conditions and driving. The system, named The BMW Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) can be implemented in the near future.

In the automotive world, active suspensions are not new, especially in four-wheel vehicles, though still not much to using it. But in the two-wheeled world, this is the first created by a major manufacturer.
BMW DDC system does not like the magneto-rheological damping system damping fluid which is in an active suspension Audi is able to change the viscosity of the fluid inside the damper components quickly.
BMW's use a simple variable aperture ring that makes the compression and rebound damping suspension adjustments. The system utilizes data from a number of systems and sensors to determine when he decided to suspension settings.
When pengndara rotating gas with a strong grip, the system automatically strengthen the Shockbreaker rear suspension damping to prevent the vehicle up and help deliver power to the rear wheels more effectively.
Conversely, if the driver braking, the front suspension forks will receive an increase in the damping force to prevent bending and maintain a stable vehicle motorcycle at the time of entering the corner.
Levels of damping force is given in accordance with the level of acceleration and deceleration forces experienced by the motorcycle. This additional attenuation will soon disappear along with the loss of force caused by the effects of acceleration and braking.
Likewise, when the motor into the downhill, the front suspension gradually hardened in accordance slope angle. This effect will relax when the road back flat and seemed to situations that this one needs improvement.
Because at a steep angle, just the front wheel suspension motion requires a lot more to anticipate the existence of the mounds, different case if the vehicle slid on a smooth road, then this feature is very helpful.
The system is also able to recognize road conditions, such as holes, railroad crossings and so on. When the sensors detect front wheel travel shocks, front and rear suspension immediately reduce the hardness to provide comfort to the maximum extent possible.
Unfortunately it does not explain how fast the reaction when the front wheels hit the bumps of the adjustment on the rear suspension so the vehicle can adapt quickly when taken along with the character of the road surface changes.
The suspension is still being developed by BMW and in time he will soon become part of the features available on BMW Motorrad motorcycles in time soon.
With the features such as traction control, ABS, quickshifters, semi-automatic tiptronic transmission, tire pressure sensors and is now active suspension, the BMW managed to establish himself again a step forward as an innovative manufacturer of motorcycles. LATEST CAR NEWS
