Lol - you could be right. My 2015 R and I seem to be a perfect match but I do have to be honest and admit that I do from time to time fall into the "shiny new toy syndrome". I think what helps me out though is the 2018 R seems more like the right fit for me than the RS so if I do have any thoughts I'd have more than enough time to talk myself out of it which I'm pretty good at.

Turn the key to "on", DRL turn on, then headlights shortly after; there's nothing you can do beyond that.
Turning the key past "on" puts the bike in "park" mode which turns on just the DRL and taillight.

Auto and high contrast are the only available settings unless you cover the sensor for the low contrast. I like the look of the low contrast but honestly it's tough to read clearly in bright sunlight so I prefer the high contrast when the sun is out.
I was disappointed when I realized mine didn't have the drl switch. I wish it was as simple as buying the EU switch pack and plugging it in! I'd love the option to use the DRLs during the day instead of the headlights.

It's almost as "simple" as putting the switch on. This dude bought himself the EU switch for his US model 2016 Speed Triple and made it so he can run just the DRL: http://www.thespeedtriple.com/forum/...g-led-drl.html

It's not that terribly complicated but it will be time consuming running all the wires (and getting to all the wires).

It's doable, and I think it's neat, but not worth the trouble IMO.

Little update on my RS.

I brought it in Monday for its 500 miles service. They also were checking the front brake that was hanging up, the clutch that i thought was way to noisy, and the cam cover that leaked oil. ***?! 500 miles and already problems. Although they are all minor problems i am still a bit worried. Im glad i sprung for the ADDITIONAL 4 year warranty, so she is covered for 6 total years.

Overall, i love this bike though. She rides amazing, corners like a beast, and although i havent opened her up yet, the power delivery is awesome.

Im picking it up today, so i can ride this weekend. Hopefully have it all fixed by next week. Ill keep every updated. Let me know if anyone else has come across these issues.
9990 and MrZoolittle like this.

Might want to check the engine covers and oil pan for loose bolts too.

It's the adaptive tune. Dealer flubbed setting it up right.
You can fix easily as I did by the 15 min adaptive tune. No tools needed
