Map switch, traction & launch control

Designed for easy operation, the standard map switch on all 4-stroke models can engage launch control, select between two engine maps and activate the traction control feature.

With the engine at idle, launch control is engaged by pressing both the TC and MAP buttons simultaneously for about 2 seconds.

The LED lamp will then blink continuously meaning the system is engaged. This function limits the amount of power to the rear wheel, improving traction and preventing loss of control under hard acceleration.

  • Standard handlebar map switch → alter engine characteristics according to conditions and rider preference
  • Launch control → maximum traction for perfect starts Traction control is selected to an on or off position from the switch and functions by analysing throttle input from the rider and the rate at which RPM increases in the engine. If the RPM increases too quickly, the EMS registers a loss of grip and reduces the amount of power to the rear wheel, ensuring maximum traction. This is a distinct advantage in wet or muddy conditions.

• Traction control → optimal traction in all conditions Engine management system (EMS)

The Keihin EMS is specifically designed to be smaller, lighter and faster at processing data.
