What's with the hostility?

The Brembo monobloc's with steel lines on my KTM SMT felt like complete shit at the lever when the ABS came on. There is no feel once the front starts jittering.

Can anyone tell me how an XRL supermoto handles compared to a 400SM Suzuki? Will the older spec suspension let me down? Would like to use it at a local small track as well as around town.
