But before we start, we look around a little on the bike. There is Keyless Go with a somewhat strangely far forward ignition. The 5 inch TFT cockpit is surprisingly easy to operate with a control cross on the left. There are three configurable driving modes and all sorts of technical assistance systems: Wheelie Control (fortunately!), Launch Control, Traction Control, Curve ABS, 6-Axis IMU etc.
In contrast to the standard Fireblade, our SP variant has an Akrapovic system as well as a semi-active, electronically controllable chassis from Öhlins. Now I am not a racing driver full-time and can not say anything competent about the various setup possibilities, but in any case the chassis feels extremely stable. Rarely have I been on a motorcycle with so much confidence, although I have not changed anything in the setup.
The Fireblade 2020 is also far ahead from light technology. The indicators integrated into the mirrors include the daytime running light and of course all luminaires are in LED. At the front of the cladding, the winglets are visually very attractive, which should provide a lot of contact pressure when driving around the bend with 200.
