Yes, the HP2 has it and Enduro racer Jimmy Lewis who was racing one in Baja had an EWS error and could no longer race.
BMW must track the number of spare parts sold and warranty claim parts used. We hear about EWS issues here but what is the general failure rate? No one knows for sure.
And unless the option to bypass the system is offered from the factory, there's nothing you can do start the bike. The only advantage of the immobilizer is if the bike is stolen it can only be used for parts.
