From here:

A double-sided swingarm as it's cheaper than the single-sided version on the 1199 to help keep the 899's costs under control but the bonus is it's lighter than that of the 1199.
Does the same thing apply to 959 vs 1299?

Although that website claims the electronics are the same and they are not. 899/959 doesn't have the IMU that the 1199/1299 has

Overall I think we are still heavier though due to the gas tank, rear subframe and engine covers

SSSA is heavier than DSSA. SSSA needs more mass to stop flex. But I wouldnt go saying its a boat anchor or the likes.

^This. The structural rigidity of the SSSA isn't on par with ours and nor is the weight. It does however cause random erections and that's gotta be worth a pound or so... Performance wise, an SSSA will NEVER outperform a DSSA... All of the critical sub components are inherently going to wear better and perform at both their peak and longevity better too...

:smile2: We do have less unsprung mass!


:frown2: On our heavier bikes...
