I just want to share some thougts about our bike here. Got mine a month ago, a standard 939 in red馃槉. I just did a trip with some friends into the French Alps, and I think now I have the supersport with the highest kms on the clock! Prove me wrong馃槈馃槆 Done now 4700 km and the bike has seen a lot of mountain roads, highways etc. Coming from a 848 corse se, last model and before that a 996 for about 82000 km, , I must say this is a very comfortable bike!! Brakes are smouth, not agressive, engine is torqui and handling is superb! There are two things I dont like, throtle respons in very low revs, for example in town and I find at higher revs (7000/8000) on the highway the engine trembles. In each case more tan my 848/996. What do you guys think about that?

I had mine upto 8000 rpm and it shakes and vibrates a lot. It's not miss firing so I guess that is how the engine runs. I felt no impact on the handling, except it seemed to even more stable in the bends at those revs.
Exits from tight bends work well if the revs are around 2500 onwards at the apex. What I did find is throttling totally off when entering tight bends made it less stable for 'me' so I played around with entering tight bends with some revs (2000-2500) and it handled very nicely plus I made quicker exits.

I mean with throttle respons at low revs that the bike is not smooth. It shocks a bit. Can't find the exact english word for it. Its not that the bike is not stable in the coners. Far from that! It goes in very stable and pulls out like a rocket. Was underway with Panigale an d Yamaha mt10. No problem to stay in front馃槆
