Werent impressed at first but been a good ride today. Took a bit of getting used to but starting to like it now. Smooth & quick. Just need to build confidence in its handling.

Same when I first got the 12S 10 years ago. Once you get used to it, the bike will go exactly where you want it to. Its a strange feeling but you can trust it to do what its supposed to.

Never had my knee down, but used to deck the cylinders regularly on track days and at the 'Ring. It will out brake anything and is so stable in long fast sweepers that you can ride around Super Sport 600's (on track of course). You just have to learn to trust it, as there is little to zero feedback from the front, unlike conventional or usd forks.
