In support of this the radiator shrouds, side covers, seat and fuel tank offer a slim, smooth and continuous transition allowing the rider a great deal of freedom and flexibility of movement. The bodywork attachment points where the rider contacts the bike have been made more rigid so the rider can grip the bike more solidly, for better feel and control. In addition, the rear fender now has a lift point with integrated support to make it easier to hoist the bike onto a stand. The radiator shrouds incorporate high-efficiency channels for maximum air flow into, through and out of the radiators; fuel capacity is increased, by .6L to 6.3L.
The sharp-edged front mudguard is radically angled downward to deflect mud, and maintains strength and rigidity where needed but uses thin-wall construction towards the tip. Similarly, the rear mudguard is narrow but utilises a diagonal upsweep to reduce mud scatter. New mounts save weight, yet its structure is strong enough to be used to lift up the bike.
