Haven't ridden the '12 model but the weak link on the 06-11 models is the rear shock. Cheap and soft.

It is not exactly a 'limp' mode, since it has an artificial 02 voltage due to the resistor that replaces the narrowband sensor.
Everything is ok as far the ecu is concerned.

Never owned one, but I never came to terms with the riding position either. Other than that, I think it is a good do-it-all bike.
Literally, every other big bike in greece is a tdm.

Why not adding an autotune?
Closed loop functionality is a very good thing to have for fuel economy and varying elevations.

Probably none, the 950 motor is very light. I wouldn't actually be surprised if the 950 is actually lighter.
But the 650 will be more tracktable and smooth in the dirt.
