This is the easiest-to-handle bike in the 4-stroke model range; it favors high-rev riding yet retains a very linear power output.
With an ideal handling to power ratio, its winning feature lies in its outstanding traction.
A high-performance engine that is at its best when the rider exploits the long gearing and significant torque.
This bike best expresses itself in wide open spaces. Its characteristics are similar to the 430 model but with even greater torque and power, suitable for more expert and physically fit riders.
The most significant upgrades and new features introduced for the MY 2022 RR range are:
For all models
- Suspension: the rear mono-shock gains new compression damping settings with independent high and low speed damping rates. This prevents the two parameters from influencing each other and limiting the customization of the setting. The settings available for the fork have been revised to improve rideability and precision during extreme use. The fork tubes are now different in colour,
thanks to the new anodising process which improves the surface hardness and corrosion-resistance of the component.
- Graphics: all models now feature a new all-red colour scheme. Combined with the new graphics, which perfectly match the shape and componentry of the bike, the new style gives the bike a very sleek, race-bred look.
In addition to these range-wide upgrades, a number of more specific and substantial modifications have been introduced on certain models to accentuate their unique and unmistakeable personality.
- Electronic control unit: the most significant new feature on all 4-stroke models is the new and more sophisticated electronic control unit. This unit has been improved to offer better “dry/wet” map
management and take advantage of the engine brake effect more effectively, to let the rider make full use of the potential of the engine. The map selector button remains in its familiar position between the fuel tank and the headstock, where it is easily accessible but protected against accidental knocks bumps which could inadvertently change the setting or break the button itself;
- Transmission: a lighter new primary transmission has been introduced across the entire 4 stroke range, while these models are also equipped with the new clutch with diaphragm spring with 3 usersettable
spring preload levels, with more progressive and smoother control action and, as already mentioned, increased transmissible torque.
