Compared to the 2010-2014 model you get a new Testastretta DVT Variable Valve Timing engine with a 10 bhp increase, cornering ABS as standard, cruise control, the rear brake is 20 mm bigger, the seat adjustable to 845 mm and the 12V sockets have been re-positioned to be more usable but the bike weighs 15 kg more.
You have Urban, Touring, Sport and Enduro modes to choose from. Sport provides aggressive power delivery and minimises traction control / wheelie control while Touring offers smoother power delivery and mid-level traction / wheelie control.
Urban mode limits power to 100 bhp with smooth delivery, with traction / wheelie control set to a high level. At the extreme you then have Enduro mode with the same limited 100 bhp, minimal traction / wheelie control and ABS set to off at the rear.
Storage is pretty good even without the optional luggage, with a small glovebox in the right fairing and a few litres under the pillion seat.
The 3 Y-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tyre at the front and a 190/55 at the rear.
