Sport Button -Adaptive Drive

I have been out yesterday testing the SPORT button.

In the manual it describes this button as switching between Normal mode and Sport mode in the Adaptive drive.

On a straightnline to be fair it is fairly hard to tell the difference unless you ride over rough surface or speed bumps and then you can definitely tell the difference.

However when I took it down some country lanes the difference in cornering is significant.So I would recommend testing on some tight fast bends if you haven't already done so.

Good luck.
