Benefiting from the precise control of the electronic throttle, the on-board computer has two on-the-fly riding modes, economic and sport, which alter the power output modes according to different road conditions with the push of a button. In addition, the 700CL-X Heritage is equipped with fixed-speed cruise control, a significant new offering for the motorcycle industry.
