    Giving the Harley crowd just what they are used to. We wouldn't want the ponies to get away from them.

    Those charts are as ugly as the bike.

    A difference of 1 hp and 4 ft lbs of torque. They'd better start selling these with 2 different keys, one for expert rocket pilots only!!

    Does the dyno operator not know that those different modes are just for throttle response and that there is no difference in mapping?!?!

    Do 3 consecutive runs on a 2018 Chieftain and you will get similar variation in hp and torque.

    What, they couldn't figure out how to lay the graphs over each other on one chart?

    I don't see the point... The response is 'vague as hell', 'a little less vague', and a 'slightly less vague than that'.
    Do you REALLY need driving modes on a 900 lb, 71 HP motorcycle? Just give me all it's got...

    "I put it in sport mode".
    Easy now, don't crash that b!tch.

    We all already knew this. The video was made to show that it’s a joke. Indian not going to become what a Victory or an HD can become for that matter. The TS111 just can’t be massaged to run or built to be strong without major $$$.

    I think what the dyno operator didn't know was the three different modes are just for marketing. They're all the same. Placebo effect will insure enough riders believe they actually got something different. At least Wine thinks so.

    I run the Diavel in Sport Mode … with No Traction control.
    I tried the other modes … but they didn't make sense to me.
    I bought the bike to run at full potential … and the rest is on me as a rider.

    Turtle Joe and I were talking about the Multistrada S.
    It has driving modes... SPORT!
    It has traction control... OFF!

    Sounds like my Concours. Kawasaki received complaints that they needed to make the fuel tank bigger. Their solution... added an “eco” mode that you have to turn on if you want that feature. I’ve never tried it. I would have to read the manual again to figure out how to turn it on if I ever did want to try it. Not sure why anyone would want to, but that’s just me.

    Traction control, they gave it a big bright yellow button that you push and hold to turn it off. Easy to figure out. No manual needed. Seems like Kawasaki knows their core customer base well, and found a way to appease the other customers.

    Minimal electronics... just how I like it!

    I demoed those bikes on November 9. I liked the stage 2 cams better than the 116, but man it’s not the 106 were higher rpm more power. I know nothing about torque. They would go fast ,the ride and handling are out of sight. The $ for the bike just left me thinking when it’s 2 years old and goes for 13,500 it would be a bike I would consider. The FTR1200 was damn nice! Only got to sit on it and play with the screen. The dealer was taking deposits left and right. ( they only get 10 ) on the first delivery. I’m positive they will be all sold. I did like the chieftain street glide a lot though.
