The R is al­ways go­ing to get the ex­cite­ment and ac­co­lades, but the stocker is well worth a look – not least be­cause what sets them apart has noth­ing to do with the en­gine. Yes, both mod­els have ex­actly the same power and torque out­put. The spec changes also mean that the stocker is ac­tu­ally a kilo lighter than the R model. So where are the sav­ings? The sus­pen­sion is all lower spec, but by no means low spec – with a Showa Big Pis­ton Fork and match­ing shock. You, mostly, get the same elec­tron­ics pack­age, too – only wav­ing good­bye to the launch con­trol and the quick­shifter.
