The rear shock absorber has a 177 mm travel range with adjustable preload, while the WP APEX upside-down 43 mm front fork boasts 170 mm of travel. Matched with the heavy-duty cast wheels [19’’/17’’] and the travel-specific tubeless tires, they provide outstanding damping in all conditions.

The cutting-edge BYBRE brakes made by Brembo feature a large 320 mm front brake disc with a 4-piston radially mounted calliper, together with a 230 mm rear disc. The state-of-the-art ABS system by Bosch has an additional off-road mode that is engageable via a button on the dashboard, allowing you to steer the rear end into the corners with ease.
