MVICS platform allows the rider to choose from four engine maps: the first three are pre-defined performance levels: sports, normal road usage and wet or slippery road conditions. The fourth allows each parameter to be customized by the rider, ensuring perfect performance both for his preferences and the specific conditions. Many parameters such as engine response, rev limiter, engine torque response, throttle and engine brake sensitivity can be customized via the MVICS platform, that also includes 8 levels of advanced traction control that have been carefully defined to ensure the best results in terms of delivering power to the road, even when road conditions are critical.
