What are the mechnical differences between the Tamburin and the F41000R? Is it just the variable length intake?
The Tamburini is using an Ohlin's rear shock, right?Reopropf said:Allan,
Fuel injection/variable intake...mapping and rear shock on Tam are big mechanical differences.
Owning Tam and recently riding F4R ~500 miles all I can say is that F4R is an incredible machine, and a GREAT ride, nearly indistinguishable from Tam. Both nasty and by the balls at the higher ends of instrument gauges :later: .
The "R" has the "new" head with different valve angles and spacing, I suspect the head has the valves further apart to suit the 1000's larger cylinder bores, the 1000's before this used the 750 head.Allan Gibbs said:What are the mechnical differences between the Tamburin and the F41000R?

Really?...the Tambo's are machined Nissins. very nice looking. I tried a Ducati with Brembo's and a MV with the nissin's i like the Mv's better. not so grabby and they stop just as well as brembos. I think they have a better feel also.luvtolean said:Yeah, the Tambo gets alum Marchesinis, the R the new Brembos. The new Brembos are probably lighter but those Sinis are uber sexy.
The rear shock on the Tambo is a Sachs.
The R gets radial front Brembos. Certainly more bling than the Nissins on the Tambo, arguable if they're better.
