Ah ah. No absolutely.
The subframe is lighter and the stock is the heaviest I ever seen.
The alluminium tank is lighter, all the front and plastic gone.
This is a light bike. I mean the standard gs.
In my willis, this is the name, the heavier parts are the under protection. The shell is 5mm really strong.
All the brake system is complex and heavy. All the abs system are kilograms. When I will complete I will weight it.

The brake parts that are removed would reduce the weight of a stock bike. I can't see the aluminum work replacing the fairing, tank and sub frame doing anything but adding weight. A scale will put an end to the speculation. GH

Yes.
But the idea was not to do something "standard".
And I did know that it's difficult to make a modern bike lighter.
In the past I take off 25/40 kgs from africa twins









A Supertenerč 750 weighting 169kgs





Varadero "Eleonora"



It is not easy with the modern bikes.

I think they all look great...please dont interpret my query on weight to be a criticism of your work. I think your F800GS "R" looks bloody awesome.
