XCx Rider Mode Queation
« on: September 17, 2017, 04:47:35 PM »
Hi

In the rider mode does it affect the expected miles per gallon? meaning would the bike have a better MPG using the road mode.

There's no expected mpg.  There's average & instantaneous.  Average is since last reset.  There is also Range to empty.  This really should be titled "Range to empty under present riding conditions"  So if you ride like a loon the range is less.  If you do lots of stop start traffic and don't / can't filter - the range is less.

I would expect poorer mpg from a sportier mode.

Having said that, the lack of "Rain" mode on my XRT has me slightly perplexed. I have an "Off Road" mode (why?) and a custom mode.

And having said that, I'm really pleased with the improved efficiency over my old Roadie. I now have a 200 mile tank range for the first time since I sold my last 955 Sprint!

You will (should) have 3 modes: ROAD, RIDER, & OFF ROAD.

You go to 'RIDER' mode and then within that you select: RAIN, ROAD, SPORT or OFF ROAD mode.

Pages 44/45 of the manual. That said I've never bothered to learn how to change mode and for 2yrs my XRt has simply been left in ROAD mode as supplied.  :028:

 I leave mine in Sport mode 98% of the time and achieve 55-65 mpg depending on how hard I ride. Perfectly adequate I think!

That is what my XRx has. I used rain once when the bike was new and it was pouring couldn't notice any worthwhile difference and have never bothered again.

As to mileage I have varied between sport and road and can't really notice any significant difference if you ride pretty much the same in either mode. If you have it in sport because you want to ride like a sports bike rider then the mpg does drop a bit.

Ahhh.
I assumed that RIDER was the custom mode. I've never actually selected it. If I had, I would have noticed the additional settings.

As I ride all year, I expect/hope to try out RAIN mode when it is slippery.
