+1 unless its is only the Aussie version, I have also read this comment in magazines even local ones but mine changes on the move as long as the throttle is closed.

+2. I change mine all the time. Just shut the throttle and switch. Great for entering towns 2 up, it stops helmet banging and the boss prefers it. When you get out the other side, switch to S and your offffffff......

It is a cracking bike. All you guys in the states will love it with a passion. You have the open spaces that bikes like this were designed for.

Not that it needs it, the bike is dam nice just the way it is.
By all reports, the only difference between Sport and Touring modes is the throttle ramp and damping - it doesn't involve timing, mixture maps, etc. Peak power and gas mileage are unaffected - all the changes is how "snappy" the throttle feels. It's going to take more than a new mode to make the bike more powerful.

You seem to post more about this bike than anyone else on the forum but I don't recall you ever posting about your own.

Just curious

New map, not just a new mode. The touring mode just plain sucks.

Doubt it. Nothing in the technical data would indicate that Touring and Sport use different fuel maps and it would vastly complicate emissions testing. Yamaha makes no claims that the fuel mileage is any different in the two modes and the Euro models in service don't indicate any difference in mileage.

Touring mode does indeed send you to sleep. I suppose it's useful for long distance runs on slab. I think the mode button just changes the speed of the throttle response. Mine is almost always in sport.

The 2012 sales brochure says "Choose from two different Ignition mapping settings.

Good info. Hadn't seen that. Still doubt any mixture map changes.

If you are cruising at a constant 120kmph to 160kmph the sport setting is useless. It is only good for passing and quick acceleration if you like to drag race Ninjas. If you are at a constant speed the Touring mode cuts down the vibration and high pitch, it makes a 600km+ ride very comfortable. The sport is good around town and heavy traffic if you are under 120kmph when you require a quicker response, or in dirt for added fun.

The two modes differentiate horsepower, they are both great features one way or the other depending on the use at that particular time.

They can be changed on the fly and come in handy with passengers (Touring) as well as passing double trailers on two lane roads (Sport) All bikes should have that feature.

If Ignition mapping is changed mixture mapping has to change to match it.

Hi Everyone

So enjoying this thread and the vids on youtube, just wondering, when are we suppose to see these bikes in the showrooms again?

I'm sorry if I did miss a resent post on this.

Best regards
