    Traction control for 22.9nm?? AT WHOPING 14,500RPM!!?? FOR A 180KG BIKE!!!?? It doesn’t get funnier than that. Cool bike tho, could have so much fun without having to go silly speed on public road.

    • Exactly therefore it has traction control. The engine characteristic is difficult to handle for people unused to it.

        Nahh..engine characteristic has nothing to do with traction if the torque is that low, and the bike is one of heaviest of it class. Contrary to what you believe, that make it easier for newbie to learn sport bike. I did some hard thinking and come to conclusion, it’s for track purpose. Especially accelerating hard out of slow corner. That’s the only possible moment to loose traction.
