Default smart Mode

The 2015 owner's manual discusses smart mode .I currently have Eco, Sport and normal mode . Has anyone seen or if so how does it work : I pasted the page from the online version( 2015) pages 5-54-55

SMART MODE
SMART MODE is an intelligent
driving mode which automatically
selects the most appropriate drive
mode (Economic Aggressive) by
measuring usage of steering
wheel, and accelerator pedal.
When DRIVE MODE button is
pressed and the SMART MODE is
selected, SMART indicator will illu-
minate on the dashboard.
The color of the SMART MODE
indicator light will depend on the
driving style. If the driving style is
economic, average, and speedy,
the indicator light will be green,
white, and red in respective order.
When the SMART MODE is acti-
vated, and the Engine Start/Stop
button is turned off and on again,
your car will still maintain the
SMART MODE.
Driving your vehicle

In the US we don't have smart mode on the 2015 K900
It is included in the 2016 K900 according to the web site
Isn't even included in our 2015 K900 manual.

Good eye, I never seen it before but I think you have to pick the drive mode then press and hold the drive mode button to activate the smart mode for that particular drive mode. My K900 is in a garage for winter but, I'll go check it out after work tomorrow. This smart mode looks very neat and maybe a hidden trick that the K900 has that you just discovered

No luck, spent so time messing around in my K900 and can't find the smart mode.

I also tried it and no luck finally just gave up I suspect the online 2015 owner's manual is really the 2016 . Oh well

Yeah, it would be nice if it could learn the way we drive. Who knows maybe there might be a update for us.

That would be pretty neat, but I usually just leave it in the mode I am looking to drive in. Which 90% of the time is the Sport mode.
