Studying the catalog spec by spec, line item by line item, we find nearly identical columns of data until we get to the geometry of the two machines. I also hope the comments here will inform me and others planning on making the change. Once you figure it all out, zipping through all of the selections is quick and easy with the Multi-Controller wheel on the left bar. It worked all over Bolivia for us.

When you come to a stop on a hill you can activate this feature by tapping the front brake twice. I don't commute on my bikes though. Electronic actuators in the cylinder heads shoot a pin into one of a pair of curved ramps on the cams, shifting it to full load mode at 5,000 rpm no matter what, or at lower engine speeds based on load.

It took a few of us working together to figure that one out. The new units will be identifiable via their new cam covers and routing of the header pipes. So, sadly, no dirt for this Beemer. Take offs are easy, which is a good thing considering the size of the vehicle, and accelerations are responsive without being aggressive. With the basic version, you show cool elegance in Ice Grey.

Depends on which report you read. Heat management is another issue. Does anyone make an aftermarket wing that would sweep some air in behind the cylinder heads? Rough routes, adverse conditions and the most remote destinations are no problem for the queen of travel enduros. This will automatically employ the rear brake, which will stay engaged until the rider starts applying the throttle. Having some thoughts on the cam shift mechanics.

Not only does it manage to keep you comfortable and composed, but it also irons the road flat under your wheels. For 2019, introduced an entirely new adventure flagship model to its lineup. The Emergency Call system is a great safety aid, which now has no annual costs once fitted, and provides an intelligent emergency response system which, amongst other functions, will call an ambulance to your exact location for you if you crash and are incapacitated.
