The immobilizers aren't a problem, we've had them for years, all Gen2 and up have them except the US. Failures are really rare (I know of two overseas, one a broken wire).
You get a red master key that is used to program or re-program a replacement key, and you keep this in a safe place at home. I also got a spare blank chip key I can program if I lose one. With any bike, I keep the spare key in an inside pocket of my jacket with my insurance/owner documents. If you happen to lose your main key, at least you have the spare with you.. handy if you're 3000 miles from home.
No problem getting a spare cut from the original......
