Need info on slick mode

Hey folks..
I am new to this forum and looking at buying BMW S1000RR in near future. Just want to clarify a few things before heading to our local BMW dealer. Has anyone run their S1000RR in Slick mode on the streets? Can anyone tell me what's the difference between slick and race mode? Does the bike has more power and does the ABS change at all? I Googled this topic, but found nothing useful, so I thought to ask other S1000RR owners.

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Rain mode is the only mode with reduced HP.

The main difference is the "speed" that the throttle is applied as you twist the grip. Slick is as close to 1:1 twist grip to throttle opening there is.

As fas as ABS and DTC :

Front ABS is always active. Rear becomes less active with the increase in modes. I can't remember about traction control right now. But I think it is always engaged full time.

You can definitely disengage traction control completely.
We've experimented with it, in back to back races and practice sessions, and did plenty of comparisons. In early development, on the miserable stock shock, the TC was frankly a negative. As we've improved the mechanical/shock component of traction, the TC is less easily overwhelmed (and thus less interventionist) and we're now a tad quicker with it. But it's not all pluses. It's actually about 4 steps forward and 3 steps back. i.e worse in some corners, better in others, with the pros narrowly outweighing the cons. For us, it's worth about 0.2s/lap, as a VERY rough average.

Slicks mode on the street has no real use, just like slicks themselves. Poser/self-delusional mode only
