Thank-you for encouraging words. Next month service is due and i will discuss with fass. From all the discussion, what i understood is that this issue can come, if engine is not at optimun temperature. So if we have a slope immediately after starting, we need to take some care like idling. I have 195/55/R16 oem tires and ride is harsh, but handling is good. I drove upto 160 kmph on bangalore vellore route last week and stability was awesome. So i feel i have to live with slow speed stiff ride ( and very good high speed ride ). cold engine slope power issue, will discuss with FASS during next service. Overall happy with the beauty --- Double Post Merged, Mar 26, 2016 --- I too went to yelagiri last week with hair pin sharp bends, slope, and found no issues at all. That is why it seems, when cold, cpu is programmed not to allow much revolution to prevent damage to engine. But not found anything like this online.
