Wah you are so sure you would get 5 ppl to buy?

i am just skeptical about the sale of this model, cus most of those who came into the showroom and say they are interested in Fuoco, in my experience (not referring to you lah), are just "ice-creaming" me :lol:

Covered 40kms on the bike just now. Always nice to ride something brand new, but a pain as there is a need to be gentle until the bike runs in.

 

Definitely not as smooth as the Tmax, expected, as the Tmax's a parallel twin and the Fuoco is a single. cannot compare power as the bike is still new, but pulls very well even at small throttle opening.

 

I love the front end instantly, but find the rear end inferior to the Tmax. Again this is expected as the Fuoco has a swinging engine whereas the Tmax engine is frame mounted, much like a real motorcycle.

 

Cruising the highway up to 120kmh is great and feels rock stable, and the front end feels planted on the three occasions i took off highway ramp looping type of corners.

 

The lights are great, giving a good spread. Fuel tank is small though, only managed to fill up 11 litres before brimming out. Transitions seems to be lighter than the Tmax despite giving away 30 kilos in extra weight.

 

More to come.....

As posted in the Tmax thread;

 

Bad news for TMax owners. The Fuoco will whip the Tmax in the corners. I rode the Fuoco up to Genting this morning with my sportbiker friends. On Karak highway sweepers no contest as the corners can be taken at top speed and the Tmax will walk away easily. But as the corners tighten up, the Fuoco will definitely pass the Tmax. The Tmax has significantly better power from 120km/h upwards.

 

The Tmax has better ground clearance but a bit of hanging off will allow the Fuoco to get around the problem. I was able to scrape the mainstand of the Fuoco with confidence and keep the bike pegged low all the way through the corners. Clearly with the mainstand removed, the Fuoco will be able to match the Tmax's lean angle.

 

The front end grip for the Fuoco is much better than the Tmax and although the Tmax offers better front end feel, its not enough to overcome the Fuoco's extra grip.

 

Going uphill the Fuoco will not be able to keep up with a well ridden Tmax given the power deficit. Going downhill the Fuoco is just unbelievable. It is fast without feeling hairy, and the braking power is really good; for two reasons, three contact patches instead of two and the lack of front end dive.

 

I rode down with a couple of MSS riders on their Ducatis and the usual gaggle of Japanese sportsbikes. The Fuoco was able to really play wth them in the corners without me having work too hard.

 

I'm in love with my Fuoco....and wish there is another 5 - 10 HP that can be extracted from the motor. With that the Tmax will be fodder for the Fuoco....

Nice pictures bro!

 

Does the extra weight over the T-Max make a difference??

Even the smallest spark can start a massive forest fire...

Not really. The Fuoco seems to steer better and the extra weight is made up by having the extra front tyre when braking. A bit heavy when pushing around but its ok cos yo do not have to balance the bike on two wheels.

 

I took it up to Awana Genting again this morning and hade even more fun with the regular sportsriders on their crotch rockets.

 

Weather was really great, roads twisty, clean, dry and grippy and the coffee never tasted better in the cool and misty mountain air.

 

The Sportsriders wondering 'how come'.....

I filled it to the brim and got 22.75 km per litre.

mrmagoo

 

great pics and i'm sure you and your Fuoco 500 got all the attention during the trip :)

 

as for gaining more bhp,

other than aftermarket exhuast

perhaps rollers/belt mods, or a spark optimizer ?

 

by the way any plans to remove the main stand ?

as i heard that with the main stand , the bike can still be parked via locking the suspension

 

 

 

i'll order one as soon as i pass class 2 :slapforehead:

hopefully by then it's for sale in singapore
