IN DE­TAIL

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

1 Cus­tom-made chas­sis

The beam frame and swingarm are made from 7000 se­ries alu­minium, which is stiff and light­weight. Hid­den in­side the tail is the ra­di­a­tor for the in­ter­cooler, but the new en­gine won’t re­quire this. Ditch­ing it will save even more weight.

2 No sus­pen­sion link­age

The rear sus­pen­sion is slightly un­ortho­dox. The shock at­tached di­rectly to the swingarm, as Crighton is not a fan of sin­gle shocks op­er­at­ing on a link­age, as his tests have shown they re­quire more damp­ing and re­turn less feel.

3 Flash fin­ish

A plethora of top-tier com­po­nen­try, in­cludes Bi­tubo sus­pen­sion, Brembo four-pis­ton front calipers, AP Lock­heed rear caliper and Dy­mag car­bon wheels. The curved bel­ly­pan is an aero­dy­namic sug­ges­tion from the chaps at Wil­liams.
