I understand the Brembo brakes were, from the fact, that all new vehicles in Europe had to have the floating rotors as the brembo has.JonUkman said:Just the most obvious..
Brembo Brakes ('03 and '04 upgrades), Rear axel setup, Larger Radiator, Cast Swing Arm, 1 1/4 inch handle bars (this may have been an '02 upgrade???), new wheel style w/matching (and larger) rotors, 72gmh fuel pump, and (likely) improvements over time in the tranny and converter.
I am sure this is not complete--anyone, feel free to add more or correct any inaccuracies.
Thanks Peter502WingMan said:Adrian,
I know that the factory is working on a general european license, but this might be only one (welcome) reason, considering the few bikes they sell over here so far. Brembo makes, among many others, the brakes for Porsche and the new Audi A8. Brembo is part of the very small group of the very best brake manufacturers. So it is a good change.
