Compared to the 2008-2016 model the 2017 gets an R1 inspired twin LED eye makeover, with aggressive looking LED position lights. It also draws inspiration from the R1's front cowl with a 50 mm higher screen and 8% overall improvement in aerodynamics.

The front fork is now from the R1 and up from 41 mm to 43 mm, while the 1.2 kg lighter Aluminium fuel tank offers deeper knee recesses and the front discs are 10 mm 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 the Titanium Akrapovic muffler, racing stands, LED rear indicators (£95), billet pegs (£82) and pillion seat cover (£171).
