Default 2017 48 - rev limiter

hi All,

I have the opportunity to buy a 2017 48, on the test drive I was opening it up, and in first gear it would lose power at higher rpms...now to be useless, not sure what rpm, but i was not winding it out. I read the red line is 6k.

I'd check for intake leaks and mapping.
