All the creature comforts like position, foot peg and handlebar are just about perfect for touring. The clutch pull is and precise, and so is the throttle, so the bike crisply with no drama.

A strong surge forward me very tentative with the and I short shifted before rpm. The gearshift action was but incredibly direct with no or excess movement. One can just the lever and instantly feel the gear.

This is the MST-R with Ohlins suspension, BST and Brembo radial calipers. In the “R” had no bodywork as it was the test mule for the logging equipment the Pratt and guys had installed.

I’d say the suspension was a little over something Öhlins is aware of, but on the sections of roads it caused no What was most amazing was the bike’s keen response it came time to turn.

is the word that springs to but really it’s more that. It’s everything you want from a bike, control finesse that you to ease on the brakes, grab a of downshifts and tip it in to the turn, using a light nudge on the bars to your move.

I was ecstatic to be the first non Motus in the world to ride the two bikes and was away by how close Brian and his at Pratt and Miller have with their first prototype. Knowing these are heading back to Michigan to be and analyzed, and all the data is going to be before any production machines are just tells me the are going to the ball out of the park the first around. Nothing is being to chance here.
