1260s versus 950s

I’m a new rider and had my eyes on the 950s for the simple reason that I can adjust a lot of settings for speed, torque, etc through the onboard computer.

I noticed the 1260s has a wheelie control feature not found on the 950s. Will this feature on the 1260s placed in the lowest possible setting have any effect in riding this bike safer? I never intend to do wheelies-hopefully.

I plan on riding with all the performance features in the lowest settings possible for a few weeks to months until I grasp the power comfortably. I did the same with an old Yamaha waverunner that had a “learn” feature to get the rider acquainted.

Thanks in advance,
Sam

Ride the 1260 in Urban mode for a month or two. This drops the HP by about 30% and increases traction control and ABS. It also smoothes out the throttle input. It would be very difficult to wheelie the bike in this mode.

You can also increase the traction control and wheelie control settings and save them into the riding modes. Dealer can help you with that which is always a free item...only takes a minute.. .

Wheelie and traction control can be set where it won't raise or spin a tire. Works very well.

As a new rider, you should not buy either but you may not want to hear or read that.
I would suggest to buy a used FJ-09 which is similar to a Multi but much cheaper. Get your Multistrada next season with some experience under your belt.
