My 1st generation 2015 explorer  :002: has got rain, normal and sports mode

When its raining I open the throttle gently, when in normal I open the throttle more sharply, when in sport mode it tends to get pinned to the stop.
Never had a problem with it.  :015: :015:

If I ever change to a newer model it will only get used in one mode anyway  :084: :084:

When I was shopping for my Gen3 last year I had a spreadsheet of everything to help me make my decision. Costs of bits that could be added on to the lower models if available and if I wanted them. Spotlights for example. Pannier choices, tall screen, quick shifter, arrow can - that sort of thing. Also things that I'd have to sacrifice if I didn't want to spend the top dollar (I could just about afford it, but better if I didn't have to). So hill hold, rider mode, cornering headlights etc.

I ended up with the XCX in a choice that ended up partly driven by the colour I wanted. It does come with sport mode, but not rider specific mode. Decided I didn't need hill hold etc and didn't want to pay for the quick shifter. I put third party spots on the triumph mounts, all third party luggage and racks, and a remus can. Literally the only thing that caught me out from planning is when I went looking for the different colours and themes for the TFT dash and couldn't find the ones that were on the demo I rode (an XRT). That doesn't really count as a disappointment. I'm delighted with how it turned out.

I have the XCa and I agree, the XCx is better value for money.
