I like sharing safety products and we have shared a few other brands of lamps and light modules that do this... sense the engine braking deceleration and then light the brake lamp when the motorcycle decelerates but the brake pedal or lever is not used.

This one comes from Skene Lights.

Increase your safety with brake lights triggered by rapid deceleration!
Additional information about Installing the P3 with Decelerometer can be found in our Support section

Motorcycles slow down very quickly when engine braking or downshifting.  Drivers behind often fail to recognize the slowdown because no brake lights are triggered.

Skene Lights has added a decelerometer option to our P3 rear visibility systems that recognizes rapid deceleration and triggers the brake light flash sequence without the rider ever activating the brake lever!

The deceleration system combines microprocessors and proprietary algorithms within a small controller to monitor your bike’s speed and direction.  It even recognizes hills and leans, adjusting automatically to avoid triggering the brake lights unnecessarily.

Other similar products that we have previously shared on HDBitchin...

Often wondered why something like that was not required on a motorcycle. ( Not that we need big brother to tell us how to be safe out there.) I have seen cagers, (through no fault of their own ) get to close for comfort and the person on the bike was clueless about what would of, could have, happened. I've always tried to at least apply a little pressure to my brake pedal when I'm slowing down and not using my brakes. Not 100% of the time but as much as possible. I think this is a good thing but not everyone will agree. 8)

Looks interesting.I have not given any thought to not having brake lights when slowing down by down shifting or just decelerating.

I agree. Something like this should be standard on motorcycles.

I always apply and release my brakes several times to get the attentionof those behind me but this would certainly help with the occasional engine braking decel that I sometimes do.
