The new ride by wire system makes possible a complement of electronic rider aids that bring the mighty Speed into modern times, including five riding modes: Road, Rain, Sport, Track, and Rider Configurable. Selecting the Road, Sport or Track modes will get you pre-set throttle-map, ABS and traction control settings. Choose the Configurable mode to customize throttle maps, ABS and traction control settings to suit riding style and road conditions. This adjustability came in handy when I wanted smoother throttle pickup while transitioning from trail-braking to acceleration during our racetrack sessions. A few button presses allowed easy navigation through the menu to change the standard track settings from the Sport map to Road, while keeping ABS and TC in the less intrusive track mode.
