F3 Traction control on or off ?

After reading MCN's review of the 2012 F3, they mentions turning off the traction control as a bike like this doesnt need it. Thoughts ?

You have to be fairly heavy handed to break rear traction on the 675 F3 under normal circumstances, but it just might save you from unexpected loss of traction - spills, dirt, etc on the roadway.
I leave mine on level 3 for road use, but generally turn it down, or off, for track days.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Not many smart things come out of that magazine, but that is probably one of the better ones.
What are your thoughts ?

Hey thanks. Yep, I agree, I wasnt sure about the statement so came straight to the forum where we have 'proper' MV riders. I wonder maybe if they meant for track use. Im not a good enough rider for the track, so I think ill leave mine on number three until im used to the bike and then I might notice the difference turning it up or down.

Do any lights come on when the TC is engaged?
i don't think i have felt it kick in at all...the power is so linear and smooth on this thing it really doesn't need it. It has such a safe and manageable power delivery. I have the TC set to 2.

This is the first TC enabled bike i have ridden and i'm still wondering exactly how it works. I don't want to be stupid with the throttle but i have been giving it heaps of stick around the mountains and any twisty roads i haven't felt the rear end slide or break traction at all. Maybe i'm still being too cautious with the power like i would be on a litre bike?

Also do the 2015 F3 have anti-wheelie at all?

I don't think they have anti wheelie but it might have Rear wheel lift mitigation. I know the Dragsters etc have that.

It save me some times on wet patches, but it reacts very progressive , you can feel the work even at level 5.
At Misano track, even on 2 level, my rear tire starts to be worn after 5 laps, I must precise I got a termi exhaust who adds few grunt everywhere
