Fair warning, he mentions the ape hangers in at least 5 paragraphs haha !

He does admit that the only perk of the ape hanger is the looks and not control or comfort.

Aside from the handle bars, an area that can be improved is the front brake. The single 310-millimetre disc sounds like it`s not up to the challenge of providing you with enough stopping power.

No room for a second disc either so another route has to be taken.

Thankfully, aftermarket companies will provide different components to help the braking so it's not something that'll require a lot of pondering on.

I'm just waiting for Brembo to jump on this. They're one of the biggest brands out there for brakes and for good reason. Think they'll have something for the new bobber?

Checking through RevZilla, the only Brembo products they have, they only apply to KTM, Yamaha, and Ducatis

Sometimes it just a matter of them waiting to see what the market wants. Patience is key during these times and if you can't find it on the companies website, contacting them directly will get you some insight.
