Compared to the 2008-2016 model the 2017 gets an R1 inspired twin LED eye makeover, with aggressive looking LED position lights - check the pics above. It also draws inspiration from the R1's front cowl with a 50mm higher screen and 8% overall improvement in aerodynamics.
The front fork is now from the R1 and up from 41mm to 43mm, while the 1.2kg lighter Aluminium fuel tank (previously Steel) offers deeper knee recesses to grip onto and the front discs are 10mm larger. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.
The Race Ready edition gets you a full race fairing, power boosting Titanium Akrapovic exhaust system, Ohlins suspension, Brembo T-drive brakes and Pirelli Diablo tyres.
Accessories include a Titanium Akrapovic muffler, front (£249) and rear (£155) racing stands, LED rear indicators (£95), front brake remote control (£102), billet pegs (£82) and pillion seat cover (£171).
