Command the Ride
Handle the city. With a naturally upright riding position that puts you in charge. Lightweight 5-spoke wheels, sporty aluminum swingarm and footpegs shave mass for super-fast, effortless steering. Dual 296mm discs and Nissin two-piston radial-mount calipers offer strong, progressive braking. Dialled-in Showa 41mm Separate Function Fork-Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks mean you can push hard into corners with all the feedback for grip you need. And then some.
A cut, low-set stance locks in the imposing street fighting attitude of a bike built to rip it up. Wide handlebars give the leverage and control to dodge through gaps, scorch corners, and open the visibility you need to be fully aware of what’s going on around. It pays to be seen in another way: they’ll see you coming thanks to a piercing new headlight and, for sure-thing cornering at night, the beam penetrates the dark with a wide light distribution.
