Well, after multiple weeks of waiting, I can now call myself an owner of a new 2015 N1K. Coming from the Ninja 500, I was a little scared to using this thing, because I didn't want to flip myself. The dealer set me on Low Power and KCTR Level 3, just to get used to it. I enjoyed the 40 mile ride home, and am amazed at how much more powerful it is, than what I was coming from. What also amazes me, is how powerful it is on reduced levels. I wondering how it's gonna be when I am comfortable enough to up the power level.

Congrats man, won't be long and you'll be on full power, this bike is so rideable it's not even funny!
The power will become addictive :) Enjoy the new ride!!!
Yea, many of us are looking for MORE power ;-)
Congrats, and welcome to the fun! Coming from a cruiser, I kept mine on "Rain" mode for the first 1000 miles, just to get used to the power delivery. Not a bad idea!
It's always a function of your right wrist so learn the bike well. :D
Don't be intimidated by it's power, this bike is so user friendly. I have a N1K13 and don't have any power modes, so it was full on power for me from the get go and I am getting used to her, but I still give her respect, because I know a beast lives within her! At least you can get your feet down flat, I am just on the balls of my feet and that is with boots!
