Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be working with you today.

Very strange that no engine light illuminated. Limp mode and a misfire will absolutely turn on the check engine light if they happen.

Have you tried retrieving trouble codes? Is the bike stock or modified?

I'm guessing there is an intake air leak.
