Of the two available maps, I ran the bike in map 2, which seems to be my preference on most KTMs. It has increased torque in comparison to map 1, which aids the bike’s ability to carry third gear. The traction control (TC) option is good, but it takes a few laps to learn just how it is really helping because it’s not all that noticeable when first turning it on. It’s more significant when you have been riding with it on and then turn it off later in a moto. I rode with it on for several laps and didn’t really think it was doing much, so I turned it off. After two laps, it was more apparent that it really helped with wheelspin and corner exit control. With TC off, the rear wheel lost traction a few times in an area where I didn’t have that problem when TC was on.
