GET­TING TO K NOW YOU

What the hell are By­bre brakes? The KTM comes with By­bre. Eh, what? After a quick twominute Google ses­sion I dis­cov­ered my brakes are fake Brem­bos. Or to put it cor­rectly, Brembo is the pro­pri­etor of By­bre, Breco and March­esini brands. More lit­er­ally, By­bre is an ab­bre­vi­a­tion of ‘ By Brembo’ and the brand is specif­i­cally ded­i­cated to small-to-medium dis­place­ment mo­tor­cy­cles and scoot­ers. I know I’m small, but I don’t go into H&M for H&M Kids cloth­ing – give me some Brem­bos!

KTM Pow­er­parts

Christ­mas has come early, ’cos mama’s go­ing shop­ping! Akrapovic slip-on? Yes please (£461). I’m also look­ing at some racy rearset foot­pegs, and a tank bag to help my com­mute. The £137 rear bag (10-30 litres) also fits per­fectly on the KTM’S pil­lion seat, so I need this. And if I take the 125 to Wales I’ll def­i­nitely need the £206 side bag set. Long jour­neys also means a Usb-power out­let kit will come in use­ful.
