Thanks for all the answers!

Just to be clear, the problem isn't that the throttle is snatchy/abrupt, not related to riding modes at all.

If I leave the bike going in 1st with no throttle, the bike pull is irregular, if feels like you are hitting small bumps, as the bike will slow down and pull again in quick succession, don't know how to explain. Whether it's the engine doing it or anything between the engine and wheel, although the engine rpm doesn't sound irregular so I'm assuming it's not that. I just wanted to check with any 890R owners if in the same situation (no throttle 1st gear at 9mph), they get a constant pull from the bike with no irregularities.

Anyway I have an appointment in a week to get it checked at a dealership, hopefully they can figure out what it is..
It’s a high compression engine at idle. What did the dealer decide?

Just wanted to give an update, a ktm workshop tested it and they said the bike is fine. I have to say I'm not convinced, I have another dealer booked for the 30th I'll see what they say, if they have another 890 maybe I'll try it.

Thanks everyone for now
