Of the trio of power settings, we preferred the Standard mode, with it offering accurate throttle response without feeling overly snappy. On/off throttle response is especially well-dialed but there is a slight disconnection in terms of throttle twist and engine power, with a mild surging effect during delicate partial (over 50 percent) to fully open throttle inputs. It’s worth noting that the machines we rode were preproduction models, so the final fuel and ignition mapping haven’t been finalized. Indian says that by the time this motorcycle arrives in dealers in May or June, it will have the final mapping installed. As of our test it was about 93–94 percent there. The Sport power setting further sharpens throttle response, while the Rain setting tones it back slightly.
