Anyone know anything about these guys? Kit GRIPONE S3 - GRIPONE

It is traction control and a quick shifter. The Bazzaz uses engine speed variations to initiate TC. This is essentially "high-side" control because there are speed variations between wheels that don't necessarily read as engine rpm fluctuations and it's mainly a track tool to help you leap out of corners. The Gripone has wheel rotation sensors so it's more of a modern streetable traction control addressing the full range of traction loss conditions. One problem I see is the rotor bolts on the wheels need to be ferrous material. Not even stainless steel.

Interesting tech.

You better be careful Willie or Suzuki is gonna be sending ninja thieves ro come take that bird so they can reverse engineer it and call it thre gen 3. And while I would love to be able to walk into thre dealer and buy a machine like that I'd have to rob 12 banks for thre down payment :lol:

I'm certain all the big manufacturers have reversed engineered just about everything...that's hw the ZX14R obtained dominance.

Any more news on this build Arch?. Your scoot is definitely in my top 5 of favourites.
Well for the most part I called it "mission accomplished". Still waiting on whether or not Akrapovic can find a new Ti for the gen 2. Also thinking about cams and head to get to 220+ hp. Looking at Gripone TC too. But basically enjoying the bike even though riding time is scarce these days.

The BMW is finally getting the recall fix to the transmission after 5 months! When that's fixed I will decide what to do with that so I'm holding on bike plans for a minute.

Thanks for putting me in your top 5 though, that's pretty high praise!
