Limp mode?

I just wanted to share my situation. Leave house in sport mode. I go slow in the neighboorhood since it is 5:30 in the morning and I want to be quiet, mayb3 3000 rpm max. I turn onto arterial street and try to accelerate and shift into second. It just lugs. I try more throttle and it stays at a low rpm, no matter where I move the throttle past a few thousand. I pullover, switch to touring thinking maybe something in the ECU for that mode going wrong, same symptoms. I pull over and turn off the bike. I wait a minute thinking turning off and then back on might reset computer. I turn key and all lights are bright and the dash said ERRORS. I turn off and wait some more. I turn on the bike again and it seems to work. I drive away and go through some gears and all seems normal. The dealership was closed on Monday so I took it in yesterday. I put 180 miles driving to work and back on it since the fault. They said the errors shown were ECU fault and APS. The APS was acceleration sensor. They began troubleshooting and not sure if they could replicate problem. I just wanted to share story in case someone has had similar problem and I will post resolution if any.
Ride safe!

interesting, thanks for sharing. Hope it behaves itself for you and it was just a glitch.

I just put 5500 km on it. No throttle problems noticed.
For me no ecu updates. I'm getting heated trips soon. Hopefully it will not cause any problems.

Ecu update

ECU Updated on late May. I pick up bike tomorrow. I am moving so I need it back to put on trailer. They said they would do what they could by then. I am headed to montgomery, AL and the closest dealer I could find is a few hours drive. I hope they find resolution! Moving and having to arrive and worry about this will not be welcome!

My HS stopped and wouldn't start. Apparently it's a software issue - bike recovered to dealer and now sorted with a software update.

Picking it up tomorrow. I'll let you know if there is a further problem.

Latest software seems ok

Dealer loaded latest version of software and no more error reports. He described other issues I had related to last version. One thing I noticed was starting was sluggish. It was like the battery was low, did not start like it used to before last update. Going to pick up and load it in trailer for move. They put miles on it today and still no errors.

What is the APS?
What does it do?
Who do I know if it's not working?
