Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
The Multistrada is fitted with a Bosch inertial
platform, equipped with inertial measurement unit
(IMU). The IMU constantly monitors motorcycle
incidence and lean angle, matching them with ABS
signals, thereby optimising the efficiency of all these
systems, regardless of motorcycle position.
The Power Modes are the different engine maps the
rider can select to change power level and delivery to
suit his/her own riding style and surface conditions.
There are three Power Modes, one for each Riding
LOW, with 'soft' power delivery;
MED, with 'soft' power delivery;
HIGH, with 'instant' power delivery.
Ride by Wire (RbW)
The Ride by Wire system is the electronic device that
controls throttle opening and closing. Since there is
no mechanical connection between the throttle
twistgrip and the throttle bodies, the ECU can adjust
power delivery by directly affecting throttle opening
The Ride by Wire system allows you to obtain
different power level and delivery according to the
selected Riding Mode (Power Mode), but even to
accurately control the engine brake (EBC), thereby
helping to control the rear wheel slipping (DTC).
The rider can choose from 4 different preset bike
configurations (Riding Modes) and pick the one that
best suits his/her riding style or ground conditions.
The Riding Modes allow the user to instantly change
the engine power delivery (Power Mode) and the
ABS and DTC settings.
Available Riding Modes: Sport, Touring, Urban and
Enduro. Within every Riding Mode, the rider can
customise any settings.
