Having not received my bike yet I have a couple of questions. After scouring You Tube for reviews etc of the bike is anyone able to answer the following?

1. do the manual UK bikes come with a slipper clutch? this was mentioned in one review! and if they do then I would have thought it to be a good selling point, but ive not heard a single person talking about it!

2. is it possible to have Hazard lights flashing? on some of the vids the indicators seem to be flashing like hazard lights! or is it just the flicker of the screen

:confused::confused::confused:
Thanks

1. yes it does
2. Hazard lights are fitted, but also the front led indicators stay on like a pair of sidelights.

In answer to the second question...that's the LEDs strobing and how the camera picks up the light emitted. In normal view (by the eye) they appear a solid color and are like the day running lights on a car. I believe they are fitted to meet Euro specs.

Assist-slipper Clutch System
The assist-slipper clutch system helps to prevent the rear tyre from locking up when the deceleration of your motorcycle produces a strong engine braking effect. It also makes the clutch lever operation feel lighter.
I don't think it applies to the DCT model, since the computer would not shift in a manner where the rear tire would lock up.
If it does, I'd have to shoot it dead before it kills me.>:)
