Thanks, Fred! Great input!The throttle maps are significantly de-tuned through out the band in tour mode, I've seen all the maps and compared them. This is the way Honda engineered it. The lower gears are even more detuned.
The reflash is designed to return much of the lost power in Tour mode. This enables you to more easily overtake a vehicle without having to first change modes, you just twist and go. Personally, I like the feel much better of Tour Mode after the reflash, and no longer feel like I need to change to sport mode all the time. I'm able to just leave the bike in Tour mode a lot more of the time. Tour mode is a lot more friendly around town and in traffic and just feels like it fits the bike better. If I really want to play on a twisty road, I'll use Sport mode, but most of the time now I just leave it in Tour.
