That’s odd. The 2021 standard features listed HD Radio with multicast FM station reception. The function is turned off by default. When FM is active, press the Option button the enable HD Radio Reception.

Thank you for the option button instructions for turning on the FM/HD radio. I did not see any info about this in the owner's manual.

In my previous complaint about de-contenting, these issues are really very minor and in no way detract from the major improvements of the newer models - increased battery capacity, new LED headlights, and optimized Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system. The newer i3 models are greatly improved and feel much more stable on the road.
