Where will the Suspension Comes From?

NineT uses suspension lifted from the S1000RR, I'm willing to bet they go with something slightly softer and cheaper. Perhaps off the roadster S1000R?

thoughts?

ok yea, like i thought the S1000RR forks are gone

Like the R nineT, the rear subframe can be unbolted from the main frame but the expensive S1000RR derived fork has been ditched in favour of a traditional item, which have signature fork slider covers for the Scrambler look

Had a feeling they would do that to cut out on cost, any idea how much they saved by not going with it?

NineT doesn't have the RR forks, but a cheaper look alike, not adjustable at all. So I think the scrambler forks couldn't make a huge difference in quality and price.

So it's more about the look than cost saving or quality?

I guess they had to cut back on somewhere, knowing that those who really want better will venture out to make it better.
