R1200RT ver R1200RT-P

I always hate to ask this kind of question because it opens you up to so much ridicule that it's almost not worth it.

But here it goes

Beside the obvious is there any difference between the RT and its cousin the RT-P?

Because beside the bags, crash guards, single seat, and radio box I just don't see much that difference.
Yah I know no rear pegs

I thought I read somewhere that the -P had a different torque curve making it easier to handle at slow speed?

differences I know...

1. 2 Batteries to handle extra lights, radios, etc.
2. Extra Oil Cooling fan for more slow speed

Might get more/better answers posting same question here:

Traffic parts like the Red Sea when you're on the -P.

I think the P has a slightly different first gear to handle low speeds better. The P also has all the additional wiring for lights and sirens, and depending on spec, lacks stuff like ESA and other fruit...
