The immobilizer system
For improved anti-theft protection, the motorcycle is
equipped with an IMMOBILIZER, an electronic system
that inhibits engine operation whenever the ignition
switch is turned off.
Accommodated in the handgrip of each ignition key is an
electronic device that modulates an output signal. This
signal is generated by a special antenna incorporated in
the switch when the ignition is turned on and changes
every time. The modulated signal acts as a "password"
and tells the CPU that an "authorised" ignition key is
being used to start up the engine. When the CPU
recognises the signal, it enables engine start-up.
