990 ADVENTURE R: SPORTS CHASSISBack to Bikes Next Benefit Previous Benefit
FRAME AND SWINGARM
The 990 Adventure R's tubular space frame made from thin-walled chrome-molybdenum steel tubing with a bolted-on, light alloy subframe only weighs 10.5 kg (23.1 lb.) yet it impresses with exemplary torsional stiffness. The long swingarm with conical profiles contributes plenty of mechanical grip.
Thanks to multiple setting options, the upside-down telescopic fork and the directly connected shock absorber from WP Suspension allow optimum individual adjustment of the chassis to suit the respective operational use of the versatile Adventure.
BRAKES AND WHEELS
More than adequate braking is ensured on the Adventure R by Brembo® brakes with the very finest components, such as two floating 300 mm (11.81 in) brake rotors. Stable wire-spoked wheels with knobbie tires guarantee full offroad potential.
