You have Urban, Touring, Sport and Enduro modes to choose from. Sport firms up the suspension, provides aggressive power delivery and minimises traction control while Touring offers smoother power delivery and mid-level traction control.
Urban mode limits power to 100 bhp with smooth delivery and sets the suspension to handle potholes in town, with traction control set to level 7. At the extreme you then have Enduro mode with the same limited 100 bhp, longest travel on the suspension, minimal traction control and the option to turn off the ABS.
Over the standard 1200 you get the Ohlins electrically adjustable suspension and ABS as standard, but it weighs 3 kg more. It can automatically adjusted for a pillion with or without luggage and there is a custom settings mode. Storage is pretty good even without the option luggage, with a small glovebox in the right fairing and 3 litres under the pillion seat.
The 10-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 Pirelli Scorpion Trail tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
Options include the rear hugger, 57 or 77 litre quick release panniers, 48 litre top box, 25 mm lower seat, heated grips, tyre pressure monitor, electric filler cap, centre stand, side bars and various Carbon bits.
The Sport version gets you Carbon Fibre cam belt covers, air intake cover, spoilers and rear hugger while the Touring version gets you panniers, heated grips, tyre pressure monitor and the centre stand.
