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, cornering LED headlights, fancy 5" colour TFT dash, new Sachs electrically adjustable suspension, cruise control, larger brakes, an adjustable seat 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 firms up the suspension, 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 and sets the suspension to handle potholes in town, with traction / wheelie control set to a high level.
- At the extreme you then have Enduro mode with the same limited 100 bhp, longest travel on the suspension, 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 190/55 at the rear.
- Touring Pack: Panniers, centre stand, heated grips
- Sport Pack: Termignoni exhaust, Carbon mudguard, billet reservoir caps
- Urban Pack: Top box, USB hub and tank bag
- Enduro Pack: LED fog lights, engine bars, radiator guard, belly pan, off road pegs and wider kick stand
Options include panniers, heated grips, tyre pressure monitor, centre stand, side bars, under seat USB socket, Titanium racing exhaust, tall GT screen and various Carbon / billet bits.
The Touring D|air edition is in conjunction with Dainese and their wireless connected airbag jackets. Basically if you or your pillion fall off, or a collision is detected, the jackets inflate Back to the Future style in 45 milliseconds and it only adds 1 kg to the bike's weight.
