The brake light's additional function, which is currently still limited to the EU and ECE area, is split into two levels. Level one is activated by rapid deceleration from speeds over 50 km/h. The brake light warns following traffic with a frequency of 5 Hz. In level two, the hazard warning lights system is additionally activated by panic braking to at least under 14 km/h. This remains active until the vehicle accelerates to a speed of at least 20 km/h again.
The dynamic brake light is only available as a piece of optional equipment ex-works in connection with ABS Pro (in connection with optional equipment Pro Riding Modes) from model year 2016 onwards for the models R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure and the S 1000 XR. The tourers K 1600 GT, GTL and GTL Exclusive will have this safety advantage as standard from model year 2016.
