Auto blipper and speed shifter is standard fitment on 2019 RS.
I have a 2019 S and had it installed. It’s plug and play.

As I understand it, the 2019 RS has a standard quickshifter, but for upshifts only. An autoblipper functions on downshifts, and the 2020 RS has a standard quickshifter for both upshifts and downshifts, including an autoblipper for the downshifts.

I asked my local dealer and they told me that he auto blipper would not be backward compatible with my 18 RS.

Think it needs to have the TFT screen to be compatible.

It very well may not be, but then again, it may be and they have no freaking idea what they're talking about, so they just told you, "no."
Kraxmel likes this.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

Lower revs, lower vibration, lower MPG. A High - Low dual range transmission would be useful for any bike, but, for example, a sport bike could use a lower range for the track or when sport riding, wanting more acceleration, and a higher range for the road for highway work. For adventure bikes the same would apply for off road (Low) and road (high). In reality I think a 7 speed transmission would do the trick. It's bigger, bulkier, heavier, but if it could be done I bet it would be great.
Hell, I get confused with 6 gears! Don't know what I'd do with 7!

I think the only time I've ever wished for a higher top gear was back when bikes were geared for the 55mph speed limit.
