The overall look makes clear connections to the original. And for 2019 its spirit has not changed — more of the same, yes; and a little something extra. Asymmetric piston skirts minimize bore contact, reducing friction. Check out both and see how far you want to push your limits. In contrast, the lower fairings are extended even further, and they meet up with the chin spoiler with new vents in both to help integrate the waste air with the slipstream while they keep drag-inducing turbulence low. Engine: 471 cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin Bore x Stroke: 67. For 2019, it benefits from pistons with an updated crown shape.

Lightweight, 17-inch cast aluminum wheels employ hollow cross-section Y-shaped spokes. A slipper clutch also adds to the list. More horsepower and reduced weight mean a better power-to-weight ratio. New twin air ducts on either side of the fuel tank feed a larger volume of air, as opposed to the single, central duct of the old model, raising atmospheric pressure in the airbox. It also benefited from fitment of a Showa Big Piston Fork and revised shock internals. It weighs 207kg; a decent figure for a 600cc motorcycle. The cast aluminum wheels are a brand-new design with five Y-shaped spokes, reducing weight by.

Internal water channeling from the cylinder head to the cylinders does away with most of the exterior hoses. The torque curve is more linear than before, so the mill smoothly delivers its power in an easy-to-anticipate manner that is relatively rider friendly, generally speaking. In the ride-with-abandon rider mode, the bike comes alive at 10k with an unbelievable surge of power. Its well suited to day-to-day life during work week commutes, or for apex strafing missions on the weekend. Curb Weight Claimed 458 lbs. There was a time when middleweight sportbikes lived and died by the checkered flag. A stout-looking aluminum swingarm and thin, low overhang tailsection appear equally as pleasing and is a fender-eliminator kit away from perfection.

Even though a lower fairing partially covers the header pipes, you can still see their clean, flowing tubed lines through the panel slits. A six-speed gearbox crunches the ratios with a slipper clutch that delivers a 17-percent lighter pull with anti-hop protection to prevent loss of control on aggressive downshifts. The abysmal surface at Willow Springs highlighted the limits of the first-generation Ӧhlins electronic suspension. Internally the cylinder head uses roller rocker arms; shim-type valve adjustment allows them to be light, for lower valve-spring load and reduced friction. The subframe is upswept a bit, but not so much as to give the R a strong nose-down look so the posture is a bit more neutral, and you can pencil me in as a fan. Occasionally, however, the transmission slipped into neutral when shifting between first and second gear at high rpm. Lightweight and flickable, the Showa suspension setup proves to be a good all-rounder.

Brake duties fall to the single, twin-piston caliper that bites the 320 mm front disc and the single-pot caliper and 240 mm rear disc, and in the U. A passionate individual when it comes to anything related to two wheels or sometimes more , he enjoys the chaotic and magical world of motorsports as much as riding leisurely to the shops on his beloved Vespa. You have to change your own tires, boy! Only you can decide, but for me, it now teeters on the edge. Really clever stuff since it saves energy in a number of ways. Four-piston radial-mount front brake calipers work on 310mm floating rotors, and are paired with a single-piston rear caliper and 240mm rotor.

That means the rider is leaning farther forward, for a high-performance riding position. First up, that motor is a gem of a thing. The R Treatment Lighter, faster and more agile. It has a beautifully smooth, buxom torque curve, with no real hit of power but strong drive from 3000 rpm, right through to the 13,000 rpm redline. Final drive is via sealed 520 chain. At 810mm from the ground, the seat is concentrated towards giving a dynamic riding position.

The net result is a motor that spins harder, and for much longer, at high rpm, with a smooth, linear torque delivery that builds strongly as revs rise, and sounds great in the process. The Ninja displaces a comparable volume at 649 cc with a slim grunt advantage at 48. The race-tastic pedigree is readily apparent, and it should serve to satisfy anyone looking for an authentic-feeling ride for their riding enjoyment on or off the track. The same holds true for the 2019 model with the addition of a thousand revs. The engine receives a new piston shape, revised cam profiles, a slightly higher compression ratio, and optimized valve timing as well as an extra 1,000 revs, putting redline at 12,000 rpm. Oh, and thank gawd someone finally found a way around those hideous orange bulbous turn signals from the bad old days. The R benefits from some weight-saving efforts to drop a total of 4.
