I would like to know how they have made it handle so well when it has such a long fork rake. I can only presume the steering head is at a different angle and the fork rake decreases as you turn.

Anyone that knows bikes though, knows this is not much when you are on long turns. It may make a difference in suburbia.


All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I think theyre applauding the wrong people........

they state "built under licence in Germany"....

then state "its a miracle of German engineering".....

I think they'll find someone else has done the hard work and the Germans just put the thing together........
