John Mcguinness says the main changes from the Fireblade he used with great success from 2008 to now should make him a big bike TT contender again.
The main changes are under the skin and involve the electronics with a throttle blipper, new engine braking system and quickshifter, all linked to the rider by the bike’s new dash.
Mcguinness also likes the new bike’s much slimmer profile and sharper bodywork and says the Öhlins suspension makes the bike stop and turn a lot better than the old model Fireblade.
Mcguinness has also added a thumb rear brake to the Nissin set up and there is a new Akrapovic exhaust system.
“The old bike was pretty good really, it just needed some little bits changing and extra bits adding and I think we have everything in place now with the new machine.”
Slicker gearchanges guaranteed
