If that is a primary concern, you bought the wrong bike. It is designed with a flat power curve at low rpms for a reason. It works better in dirt.

Or maybe wait a year or so and hope the 900 Husky engine is used. It has been bored and stroked, can't beat cubic inches or centimeters. More torque and probably more HP if they spin it fast enough. A cross plane crankshaft at 315/405 degrees. Sound like a Vtwin and will hook up in the loose stuff better.
One could do all this but it's really not a sports bike. I had the opportunity to open it up on some clear roads and it's no speed demon but totally fast ENOUGH.

Also I think a power commander might void your warranty so I will wait till mine runs out
