The front forks and brakes alone are something no other 600 has.
They are made by Ohlins (Swedish) and Brembo (Italian).
Few years back, only race bikes had Ohlins and Brembo.
I rode the stock 675 and was very impressed.
This model should be even better.
This was after riding the R6, the GSXR 600, ZX 6R and the CBR 600RR.
