Yes perfectly normal. Pop it in S and it will perform and feel more normal as it holds the gears for longer. Think of D as an economy mode and the other more sporty ;-)

Wind the beggar up in 'D and it re-maps for a sportier ride, and believe me there is nothing dull about it. Just loads of torque.

Interesting

I did wonder why when you gave it some berries in "D" mode it seemed a bit livelier

Does the same remapping principle apply when in "S" mode then?

Not that I'm aware of Bert. Certainly not when I bought my 2013 model over 2yrs ago.

It's a funny one this, D is too low for me too so I always ride in S mode and often upchange with the switch before the box does it automatically when I'm plodding

I don't know if it's in my head but I do get the impression that it has remapped to my riding style and now changes a bit earlier than it did even in S mode
