    I take that to mean you can’t adjust the ride mode while you are actively using cruise control. That seems totally reasonable, I’m surprised that snuck by in the earlier iterations.

    ahh, that makes sense. My Germanglish firmware evidently needs an update...

    Dealers in some areas are an issue.

    I used to ride to Scuderia West for big services on my 990 https://www.scuderiawest.com/ The dealership in WA state didn't have the KTM computer.

    We rode that bike in Europe for 5 years and the KTM only shops were far better to deal with.

    I now have a good shop on Maple Ridge, BC where the owner runs service and his wife runs parts.

    We still have to deal with KTM Canada however and they are often a challenge

    As another data point, I was in with one of the dealers last week and got:

    New tyres
    Firmer springs installed in the clutch (Autoclutch)
    Some work on my chain oiler
    A check of the fuel filler cap - confirmed faulty (a new part was ordered (via the other dealer) and fitted today at said other dealer)
    S/W updated to 133.30

    The whole lot was around 3hrs.

    I'm still pissed that anti-wheelie can't be disabled without disabling MTC+MSR. It's "all on" or "haha you're on your own with a 160bhp machine, gl".
    I wish the track pack was available for our machines. Supermoto ABS, MTC levels, adjustable anti-wheelie...

    It's an ADV bike. Sounds like you maybe should have got the "other" 1290R.

    I also wonder when they will add a switch (e.g. press back button) to toggle between nav and the data display, how could they have missed that essential feature? Or have I missed something?

    Haven't really used it, you can't just back button out of it? :rofl

    Nope, you seem to have to go into My ride, Nav and turn it off and back on, or fish out your phone and cancel the route, it's a bit of a joke.

    The Nav is pants too, it tries to send me on a huge loop from work to home and keeps trying to send me on its route even as I get closer and closer to home, definitely more Alpha than Beta never mind release at this point.

    But it does show promise and the graphics are nice even when it's showing me a non-existent bend that is allegedly 750m away ... at this point I would only use it if I was really lost ... and for some reason couldn't load google maps.

    It seemed to be pretty okay at getting me home. But without a map or track it's little more than a gimmick really. If the app casting ever happens it may be more useful but till then it'll be relegated to tertiary redundancy.

    And you gotta cut KTM a little slack. Garmin sent me down this Irish "road" which is clearly a sidewalk. No nav's perfect.

    It's a 17k€ bike. Hardware is there so the only reason they didn't add those things is marketing and market segmentation, so they have exclusive features for the SDR.
    That pisses me, it wouldn't cost them a cent to pack the features into the SA firmware.

    Is anyone else seeing this behavior on 133.30?

    Doesn't matter if it's a 50k€ bike. It's an ADV bike not a naked sport bike and will be geared toward ADV/Touring. If you're so pissed about I'm sure KTM would take your strongly worded letter very seriously. Maybe tell them you want launch control too.

    I am really disappointed by this. It wasn’t like that before. My local tech will be on the phone with KTM tomorrow morning. I’ll report back what he says.

    I’d imagine that they’ll say it’s a safety feature because while in cruise control, your built in traction control (your right wrist) isn’t in control so if the bike were to lose traction for some reason, in cruise control mode it could end badly.

    I effectively have that with the autoclutch - sort of. Hold the brake (foot or hand) run the revs up and (manually!) hold them there - the bike bites and is ready to go - release brake(s) - whoooosh. ;) The clutch is fed in smoothly for you.

    First of all, this bike is a lifted hypernaked, let's not kid ourselves (by the way, I have the S).
    ... and what's wrong with asking for as many options as possible as a consumer? Ducati does it with the Multistrada: all modes can be set-up with a mix of preferences as the rider wishes and the SAS has all the available hardware to do the same, it's just a software thing. You want it simple? set and forget. Want to dive into setting-up your bike? here's all the options available to you.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm in love with this bike. I know I'm nitpicking but for the hefty price tag I think we're entitled to ask for as much as possible from our machines.

    In case you missed it, Deviant is almost certainly being a bit sarcastic. I'm quite sure he would like those features too - as would I!

    With the Road Attack 3 tyres fitted, the S feels like a proper sportbike and I find myself starting to hang off without even realising. ;) And no feeling of any compromise in bad surface ability versus the ST2s, the RA3s are as good or better in the snow/muck IME.

    IMO KTM should definitely give us access to these modes/settings, I'm not in the position to be able to afford an SDR as well as the S, although I might manage a 790 and many folks have nowhere to store more than one bike.
