BMW plans Adaptive Cruise Control for motorbikes
Until now, motorcyclists have had to do without a comfort and safety assistance system that has been standard in cars (and also in trucks) for many years: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the radar-based speed control system for rolling along in traffic. BMW now wants to introduce this technology to the world of motorcycles.

Together with Bosch, BMW has developed an ACC for motorcycles - incidentally, BMW calls the system Active Cruise Control instead of Adaptive Cruise Control, as is usual everywhere else. The result - and the abbreviation - remains the same.

With its ACC, BMW is primarily targeting discerning touring riders who want to offer a special level of comfort. The system enables automatic regulation of the driver's desired driving speed and the distance to the vehicle in front. When the distance to the vehicle in front is reduced, it automatically regulates the driving speed and restores the distance defined by the driver. The distance can be varied in three stages. Both the driving speed and the distance to the vehicle in front can be conveniently adjusted using a button. The individual settings are displayed in the TFT instrument combination. The new BMW Motorrad ACC has two selectable characteristics for the control behaviour: comfortable or dynamic, whereby acceleration and deceleration are each influenced differently. Distance control can also be deactivated, allowing Dynamic Cruise Control (DCC) to be used.
