The frame of the Crosstourer is a hollow aluminium unit that employs a quartered construction. This technique enables very precise control over the all-important weight/rigidity balance of each part of the frame. The result is superb handling with a reassuring sense of stability, regardless of the road surface.
Designed to excel on the hugely varied road surfaces of Europe, the front and rear suspension systems both offer generous amounts of controlled, bump-absorbing travel. The rigid 43mm upside-down telescopic forks offer reassuring control with precise steering and stability – even during hard cornering and heavy braking. The Pro-Link rear suspension configuration combines strong traction with ride quality. Both the front forks and rear shock are adjustable for both tension (rebound) and preload, allowing riders to alter chassis characteristics to suit their riding style and intended usage.
The Combined Antilock Braking System incorporates both the easy control of a Combined Braking System and the extra reassurance of an Anti-lock Braking System. The CBS effectively balances front and rear braking control for smooth operation. At the same time, the Antilock Braking System provides extra reassurance and offers more confidence in braking power in unexpected or extreme situations.
