Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Tl1000r -

Com­pletely dif­fer­ent to the TL1000S. While the TL-S road bike had an oval tube trel­lis and was crit­i­cised for be­ing too lively, the track-ori­en­tated TL-R re­ceived an all-new twin-spar frame in­spired by that of the lat­est GSX-R750 SRAD with a rac­ing-style braced swingarm. Due to a stubby, 1405mm wheel­base, steer­ing ge­om­e­try was aimed at achiev­ing sta­bil­ity while a damper was fit­ted from the out­set.
