Re: 2018 R6 traction control.
it works leaned over. the bike has no idea how far you are leaned...lack of the IMU remember? it kicks in when the rear wheel speed and front wheel speed differ. that's all it knows.
the R1 with the IMU however knows how far it's leaned over, the wheel speed difference, if the rear of the bike is sliding sideways and how high the front or rear wheel is in the air.
the R6 honestly doesn't need that advanced of a tc system. it just doesn't have the power to spin or slide a modern hypersport tire so easily that it will catch you off guard like a modern 1000 where tc is practically a must for 97% of the guys that own one. now if you slipped on a set of touring tires on an R6 sure, it has enough hp to lite those up.
also, keep in mind, neither system can stop a front wheel slip while leaned over. in fact, that doesn't even exist on any motorcycle except for that prototype bike with the rocket boosters to stop a front end slide. (yes it's a real thing)
