Fast Bikes - - LAUNCH -

The frame is all new, and from the S 1000 RR superbike sibling. It’s lighter than be­fore by nearly two ki­los, while the new rear­sub­frame is op­ti­mised for both rigid­ity and also flex, which reads like some kind of en­gi­neer­ing oxy­moron. The main frame is an alu­minium bridge-type made from four in­di­vid­ual cast com­po­nents welded to­gether, mak­ing the en­gine a load-bear­ing part of it. The swingarm has like­wise been re­vised for im­proved trac­tion and bet­ter feed­back. The elec­tronic DDS sys­tem has been up­graded with new soft­ware, while the ABS now in­cludes Bosch’s cor­ner­ing sys­tem.
