•Progressive mono-shock rear suspension w/ remote preload adjuster
•Brembo calipers
•Forged aluminum wheels w/ wave rotors

•Removable side cases by Givi

•20,000 mi XW-ring chain by RK
•Hybrid rear sprocket w/ lifetime warranty

It would be nice if they used the Ohlins electronic suspension, now that Ducati dropped it on the MS1200. It also doesn't say that the rear shock is Ohlins in that list but the material suggests that it is.

I believe that the list should include Akrapovic.

I think if any of us were to spec out a bike, those are the suppliers we would use.
