can anybody explain how they can make the 1000r frame 9 pounds lighter and fit brembo superlights and still claim the same dry weight as the 1000s it does not add up is it me
They lied about the weight of the S? Maybe the new forks/brakes add weight or the stock S wheels were filled with helium! I've never actually read a real-world weight for an S, just the R.

Chassis reduction sure, but IFAIK the frames are identical to the S, and surely nowhere near 9lbs difference. The 1098 frame has larger diameter and thinner-walled tubes over the 999, but it is only marginally lighter.
