I would assume it is slightly stronger as well, but would add a tad more weight too???

That's been the standard now for about the last 12 months, apparently better in cross winds and better vis of the road down the vee.

Well. That's umm ... let's see now, 1, 2 ... 3 of us :)

Re the air cooling system, must get hot in Germany. I wonder where in Germany he is. Mind you, with it all enclosed I can imagine it would get a bit erstickenden. I would anyway being a bit of a "sweater" (Yuck).

For mango owners looking at improving both the looks and speed. I like the tail and even the wheel arch but can't say I like the air intake at the front. Those carbon wheel disk looks very nice indeed.

I can't imagine that the new Mango owner bought it after viewing Terry's at Pushies - that's too short a lead time I would think.
