  • What are all the interactions of the Smart Key with the Bike?

    What does the smart key really do once the bike is started?
    (luggage locks aside)

    I get it that the bike authenticates with the key Fob to start it.

    The manual has this
    "You may not be able to turn off the electrical system when losing the Honda SMART Key while riding" (p.176)

    Seems to me, if I wanted to lock the luggage while riding I would turn the smart key off.
    But Honda seems to say that the Smart key does more with the electrical system than enable it to start the bike.

    Anyone know all the interactions with key has with the bike beyond starting and locking/unlocking the luggage?

    No FOB required.

    Back in the day. Honda didn't feel it was necessary to create a hardship on its motorcycle owners.

    They used a tried n true method of a simple Key, to start their motorcycles.
