Anyone planning to take advantage of the ride-by-wire throttle on the new R9T with an auto-blip quickshifter? If so, I wonder which options are available? Would love to add one.

To be clear, I know these are retro bikes and we are old people and the clutch is easy to use, etc and blah blah blah. But I love using the quickshifter on the S1000r and Ducatis so I think it would be fun on the R9T as well. So which ones?

Are these going to be available to retro fit, or, are you asking if we’re stupid enough (I might be!) to buy a brand new bike just for those features?
Cheers, Ken.
PS. This is first I’ve heard about such things for R9T

It won’t break the bike. Companies like healtech make quickshifters that are universal. If it doesn’t work well, you just take it off.

I expect that QS will be offered by BMW as option (or standard) on new models soon. Personally it is only electronic gadget what I would like to have on mine ‘15 nineT.

If that's the case I'd buy a Yamaha M10 if you really want to bang gears

I have the Healtech QS on my 2014 model R9T. works very well at plus mid throttle, nowhere near as nice as the one on my old Tuono V4 Factory or S1000R and no auto blip but does the job well, easy to fit and cheap

Seems a gimmick to me. Had a QS on a K13S and an R12GSA. On both bikes my shifts were smoother using the clutch. The benefits elude me.
