The changing power modes is interesting. I usually think of different driving modes affecting things like suspension not the power of the bike. Changing to half power is quite the change though. I wonder how many people would want to turn on a mode that lets you go half as fast? maybe if you are just going around the city.

I think that all of the things that say "new" are likely different from the 2013 model. And the "upgraded" one is probably improved from the last model. :)

you'd likely want to use low power when cruising the freeway. Its like those V8s from GM that shut down 4 cylinders under high sspeed cruising

Yup, when it comes to cruising, that the best thing to do, ideal when you're just commuting to work and back, no need to ride like a hoon
