Well, extra wheel might have extra "problems"....

 

Some X9 owners should have the same feeling as me.

 

:sweat:

hahahaa...that means 2 additional pairs of brake pads...

 

increased chances of a puncture...meaning an additional $90 michelin gold standard...

But with extra wheel can save you from potential accidents or even death by reducing chances of skidding.

The 2 front wheels have 1 brake disc each.

X8/9 have a total of 3 brake discs right?

If so, MP3 has the same number.

Yup extra tyre, but the actual extra cost might not be so high.

With 2 front wheels, there is lesser wear, so the two front tyres last longer.

maybe not...

 

cos having 2 tyres will also increase your contact with the road...and increase your chances of a puncture...

 

anyway....any updates of its availibility?

Rekindling this thread!

 

I chanced upon this italian bike mag that features the MP3

they have a really different way of testing it...

They push the MP3 to the limit on the tracks and comparing it to an X8

 

they tried these.....

Well Italians are nice to look at but i felt they have somehow improved quite a bit.

but of course, the words ECONOMIC still belongs to the Japs.
