Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW - DAVE HOP­KIN­SON TECH­NI­CIAN

“If we com­pare a su­per­bike to a stocker, the stocker re­tains the ma­jor­ity of your out­ward look­ing parts in­clud­ing forks, swingarm, en­gine, pretty much every­thing! A su­per­bike on the other hand, doesn’t. Apart from the frame, air­box, throt­tle bod­ies, fuel lines, and the en­gine it­self, every­thing else changes. Forks, elec­tron­ics, swingarm and most of the time even the sub­frame. The su­per­bike is a proper rac­ing ma­chine – and we can make it lighter, faster and bet­ter.”
