I personally am anxiously awaiting this...
Seems like every vehical on the road today could benefit from tuning, and I suspect it is a matter of satisfying government regulations.
My boys play around with Volvo's, Saab's, and Subaru turbo cars, and simple ecu tuning can produce HUGE results.
My 2004 Dodge Ram was "built" by the original owner, has a 6.2 block swapped for the 5.7, new cams, a true dual exhaust, 4.11 rear gears... it should be a gas pig. An excellent bit of tuning by the performance shop that did the work has it pulling 22 mpg... with an extra 175 hp on tap... and on 89 octane gas.
Simply amazing what can be done these days.
I'm not really that much of a hot rodder (at least not as much as when I was younger) 😉 ... but I do like an engine that performs.
Now that I have a 2011 and a 2015 V, I can tell the difference between the two, and I like the older bike better, especially in the lower rpms.
My only question... if I were to put say, a spare 2014 ex650r engine in the 2015, could the bike's ecu be tuned for that, or would it require special "testing"?
I don't really know why, but a "surprisingly" quick V has a certain appeal.
Maybe that old lead foot isn't completely gone... 😉
If'n I do it, I gunna git a wippin .... OK! I do it!!!
