Anyone know the piston size on those Brembo monoblocks?

Only thing i'm missing on my adv950 is the stopping power and lever feel of my superduke R. I know it's worthless on the dirt but i like it for my hooligan rides on the street.

you'd need to change the fork bottoms too because they're radially mounted.

pesentation in tenerife

From Motociclismo



PERFETTA PER GUIDARE
La posizione di guida è buona: si fatica a toccare con le punte dei piedi a terra, gli incavi del serbatoio non sono strettissimi, e la sella non ha una imbottitura che restituisce il confort aspettato. In compenso pedane e manubrio sono posizionati perfettamente sia per il turismo sia per la guida sportiva sia per stare in piedi off road. Ottimo il riparo aerodinamico ad eccezione di leggeri fruscii alle spalle. Praticissimo il sistema regolazione plexiglass.


PERFECT DRIVING
the driving position is good: hard to touch with both feet (short tester), the grooves in the tank aren't very narrow. the seat padding isn't as confortable as aspected. the handle bar and the footests are perfectly positioned for both turism, sport driving and standing in off road. exellent the windsreen apart from a slight pressure on the sholders. good the regulating system of the windscrean.



IL MOTORE? UN GIOIELLO
Fluidissimo fin da 1.500 giri anche se meno del boxer BMW (cliccate qui per il test della BMW R 1200 GS 2013), allunga molto più con una progressione impressionante fino a 10.000 giri, dove interviene il limitatore. Se non ci fosse un elevato tasso di vibrazioni tra 6.500 e 8.000 giri questo motore sarebbe il top per unire esigenze turistiche e sportive. La buona notizia per i mototuristi è che a 130 km/h si viaggia a 4.500 giri quindi fuori dalla zona vibrazioni. La frizione è eccellente per dolcezza e modulabilità.


THE ENGINE? EXELLENT
vert fluid starting form 1.500 rev even if less then the new boxer, it's much longer with an impressive progression up to 10.000 rev. there are vibrations between 6.500 e 8.000 rev. otherwise it would be the top engine to combine turistic and sport needs. the good news is that for turist traveling at 130km/h the rev. are 4.500, out of the vibration range.
the cluch it's exellent fot it's softness and modulation.


ELETTRONICA SPORTIVA
Col riding mode Sport ha un attacco pronto ma non brusco, passando a Street il primissimo richiamo del gas diventa straordinariamente "burroso". Eccezionale il traction control, che denuncia una maggiore attenzione sportiva rispetto a BMW: interviene con dolcezza, con puntualità ma non è mai invasivo. Eccezionale! L'ABS, invece, altrettanto non è invasivo ma è meno raffinato del controllo di trazione.


SPORTY ELETRONICS
In stort riding mode the bike is prompt but not rude. going into street mode the frist part of the thruttle becomes "buttery" . exellent the traction control that is more sport oriented then BMW: intervenes softy, preciselly but it's not invasive. Super the ABS as well.



QUASI UNA SMT
Ciclistica? Sembra di guidare una 990 SMT leggerissimamente piu lenta a fare qualsiasi cosa. Scendere in piega, cambiare direzione, ecc. Essendo la SMT un riferimento mondiale...: risultato della Madonna!


ALMOST a SMT
It is almost like riding a 990 stm only slightly slower in doing things. gering down in a turn, change direction, etc. beeing the SMT a wordwide benchmark.. this is a f....g result.




Sorry for the poor traslation my english is what it is.


My idea: the tester was in south africa a couple of week ago and it sounds like he has interests to push BMW...

It sounds like it's going to be a great bike. I wish KTM every success.

This beautiful thing will sell in bucketloads. I may get one myself in a couple of years.
There's no rationale behind this - it's just a beautiful bike I want

Wonder what that headlight shield is made of - and how robust it is?
