From everything I've read it seems that D-MODE on the XT1200 works in the same way as it does on the R1 - simply by changing the ratio of twistgrip movement to throttle valve actuation. It's ride by wire, so it's just a matter of the ECU commanding the throttle valve stepper motor to smaller/ larger openings for a given throttle position. I don't think the fuel/ ignition mapping alters in any way between the modes. I suspect the sales brochure referred to is just loosely-worded.

EDIT: an excerpt from Cycle World's description of the system on the R1: "another new R1 feature: D-mode. A right-handlebar-mounted toggle allows on-the-fly drive-mode selection between three different levels of engine response, labeled from most aggressive to least...Contrary to the multi-mode systems from other manufacturers, Yamaha's never cuts peak power by altering ignition or fuel maps, but rather simply tempers throttle response on the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle ride-by-wire system, adjusting the rate of throttle valve opening in relation to twist-grip movement".

Sell the GS Johnny. I had two right cylinder failures on my 1150 GS's

It is their way of telling you that they are going to always be in the shop.

I still own BMW's and they still break down. I have an S-10 on order
