43mm upside down forks deliver precise steering while twin shock absorbers at the rear provide a comfortable ride solo or two-up. The forks have been blacked out adding to the menacing look of the machine.
With black components the chassis’ undeniable presence is matched only by its rigidity and strength.
It’s pure muscle and it doesn’t get any better. No seriously, it doesn’t. With torque restrictors now removed the unique 2,294cc engine delivers 146bhp and 221Nm of torque, meaning acceleration is simply astonishing. As well as being effortlessly smooth and beautifully balanced. In fact, this is the most powerful version of the 2.3 litre, in-line water cooled triple ever.
So be warned.
