Is this 1290 SAR in rain mode?

    I watched the video of [​IMG]100% Adventure . Max,(a little bit reckless, but nice sound)



    At 3min 26 he wrings the throttle, but it takes half a second for the torque to flow in, resulting in a wheelie from the beast.

    Was he in "rain" mode? I believe the throttle response should be way faster (ride-by-wire).

    Yeah. I think its something the dealer knows about that I have to bring it in to get them to fix. It's been mentioned before apparently.

    Looks like power mode to me! Frickin haulin’ and I think he’s making sure he dont loop it. Later on it came up with ease with harder twist. Nice!
