Did I read in the MCN article that if "you want to corner faster you just hit the +"

yea I did :

You have to forget about compression, rebound and pre-load as Honda have simplified it. If you feel you need better support in braking, you go into your suspension settings and you have plus and minus, so you can increase or decrease your engine braking. Thereís another setting for cornering, if you want to corner faster you increase it, if you want to corner slower you decrease it. Then thereís acceleration, which again you can increase or decrease. Itís obviously about compromise; we went really high with the braking support but that added too much braking support which stopped the bike steering and I was running wide.

I don't think this guy has a clue what this system is all about unfortunately. I'll have to wait till someone who read the f8ucking manual chimes in...I could guess how it works but I won't bore anyone with that. All in all the testers seem well not super pumped so far....

You are going to enjoy it. I had the opportunity to sit on the bike at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA. It's slim, VERY slim. I'm 6' tall, all the other manufacture's bike, I was on my tippy toes. Suzuki however, I almost flat foot but not quite. But Honda, boy oh boy, she's a slim one. I can flat feet on both feet. I wish the colors were different, but doable. I can't wait till I ride this baby!

I'm just not sure how I feel about taking her to the track within 6 months of owning her haha.
