Slick mode doesn't have engine breaking? Are we riding the same bike??

Every mode has the same engine breaking, the only difference is that in slick mode during deceleration only spark cut is, without cutting fuel. This adds responsiveness when getting back on the throttle in exchange for worse gas mileage and fouling o2 sensors.
