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 100bhp 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 100bhp, longest travel on the suspension, minimal traction control and the facility to turn off the optional ABS.
Storage is pretty good even without the optional 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 a 190/55 at the rear.
Options include Bosch ABS, rear hugger, 57 or 77 litre quick release panniers, 48 litre top box, 25mm lower seat, heated grips, tyre pressure monitor, electric filler cap, centre stand, side bars and various carbon bits.
- 2010-2012: Red, white
- 2013-2014: Red, silver
If you have more cash to splash the more expensive and better selling 1200 S gets you Ohlins electrically adjustable suspension and ABS as standard but weighs 3kg more. It can automatically adjust to having a pillion with or without luggage.
2012: ABS now standard, new seat and software update but dry weight is up 3kg to 194kg.
2013: Revised engine, Bosch 9ME ABS, new headlight with LED low beam, 1199 Panigale style wheels, larger adjustable screen, bigger glove box and minor tweaks to front fairing but dry weight is up 2kg to 196kg.
