Electronics

The XE has off road pro. Looks like abs and traction control can be turned off completely

Dam I like the look of this machine

  • Race the rain. Ride the wind. Chase the sunset.
really beautiful piece of machinery  :thumleft:

two things that I find interesting:
1) parallel twin motor with 270deg crank, seems to be all the rage these days  :ricky:

2) why make it a 1200 if you only want 66kW out of it (not sure how they get that little out of a modern 1200) why not go for a smaller capacity and keep the same output?
->    TransAlp 650 - sold

This way you get a totally unstressed engine that could give you lots of miles. Also docile because of low compression ratios.
