Hi edbike! That switch controls the rpm shift points of the automatic transmission. In the power position it lets the engine wind up a bit longer before shifting to get you more power for on ramp acceleration, off road needs, traction needs, etc.. In the other (economy) position it upshifts sooner to help you be more fuel efficient. Hope that helps!
