FRONT END

Performance Bikes (UK) - - First Ride -

43mm KYB forks from the R1 are 2mm wider than the 2016 R6 forks. Theyy have dif­fer­ent in­ter­nals and their 5mm longer stroke al­ter the weight dis­tri­bu­tion of the R6, with 52.6% on the front now, com­pared to the whop­ping 53.8% of the 2016 model. Triple clamps with a 7mm thin­ner lower bracket com­pen­sate for the ex­tra stiff­ness of the thicker forks. The big­ger 320mm discs and master cylin­der are also from the R1, and com­plete the front-end over­haul.
