Not connected to the dash I know, but the heated grips were at least twice as hot as the XR ??
Most non-XR heated grips are like that.

You guys don't find the XR's grip heaters hot enough? Mine will melt my hands if left on high :150:

No, it needs a keep-your-bloody-hands-warm setting.

I would concur on the keyless on the Multistrada.  It does not add anything to the riding experience.  Sometimes a PITA when is does not read and you have to dig for your key you were not expecting. 

Just helped a friend who's key went out on the Multi-strada start with the factory set codes...fortunately he had not changed them.

Just had a discussion with one of the development riders last night, mostly about the new RR (he had one out and about, only the 2nd in the US) and after I mentioned that I'm looking forward to the new version of the XR with the next gen 'z' frame upgrades, he stated I won't be disappointed. It should be a similar difference in power as what the previous RR to R/XR power was.

I can confirm the new RR engine felt a touch less vibey as well, but that was only sitting still with a couple blips on the throttle. We talked about the modes and how I wished the TC and Wheelie modes were seperate, and while they are infinitely adjustable on the RR, he didn't know 100% if they would carry over the style of mode selection as the previous generation. He said it was undecided. He also said that the ergos weren't changing much but I can also confirm that the new tank is a HUGE upgrade for the RR. It would encourage a higher peg placement in order to lock your leg in the tank if you were so inclined. The tank is narrower at the seat by 30mm, but the big upgrade is the angle near the top of the tank. On the RR, you could really wedge your leg into the tank and get some amazing support.  He also said the R version is going to be a real killer street bike. Lots of smart changes to the chassis to where it doesn't get upset nearly as easily. The swingarm design and shock placement have been updated so the rear shock doesn't get cooked and go crap in 5 laps. Those were his descriptions, not mine. He knows better than just about anyone on the planet.

The new full M packaged RR looks the business. We parked it nose-to-nose with my buddy's V4S just for the photo opportunity. I'm sure you'll see it if you look on instagram. The XR's storage saved the day as well, as he needed to borrow the T27 driver from the tool kit for the seat:)
