"Traction Control" is only a catchy phrase, and a misnomer and may contribute to give a false sense of security. Nothing will "KICK-IN" to help, as stated.
The only thing it means is; the lower the "Traction Control" setting is, the milder the computer output to the injectors is, related to the throttle input. The motion response to throttle inputs is just slower, that's it.
It WILL NOT improve he traction between the tires and the ground, and it WILL NOT limit the leaning of the bike on wet conditions, nor the speed...…....those are physics to be judged and acted upon by the rider, according with the situation..
….ABS might help a bit preventing the rear wheel locking in a panic situation, but other than that, it is better to ride as you would in a wet environment, regardless of the electronic "enhancements".
