Tune for Better Fuel Economy?

2012-2013 Tuono V4 R - www.apriliaforum.com
I recently installed a new Graves exhaust on my 17tuono RR, and i added the OFT stage 2 tune and while i do like it a lot most of the time, especially when i open it up (the sound is incredible and power delivery very smooth and linear above 4000rpm...at 4K it's awful, but i won't get into this now) i've noticed that my fuel economy has taken a steep nose dive.

So for comparison, when the bike was stock, and especially after i had the stock map updated at the dealer, the bike ran much smoother down low and i was getting about 180kms before the light would go on. With my current setup, the light is coming on at 135 to 140kms. I had no issues with 180 (before reserve), i don't think it's terrible considering the engine size and power, but dropping 40kms seems crazy to me.

What i really wanted to know is can these tunes be adjusted for better fuel economy and not just pure performance and power? I honestly don't care that much about the extra 10 or 15 hp that i'm supposedly getting. The bike is plenty fast out of the box. The main reason i got the OFT and stage 2 is because everyone said that was one of my only options if i put a pipe on it. I would easily sacrifice some hp for better fuel economy.

Anyone know if this is doable? Maybe OFT can chime in as well? Do i need another devise like a power commander or something?

One last thing, is there any way to have multiple maps loaded onto the ecu and switch between them without having to do the whole writing process with the OFT every time? I know when i had the SDR1290, there was a device that could do this. So one map for better fuel if you're touring, another one for power or racing. Anyhow, just wanted to pick some brains about this.

Thanks
