Forty-Eight gets an improved braking system which they call the Foundation Brake System. There’s a 300mm disc at the front and a similar single disc at the back. Both front and rear brakes are operated by dual piston calipers and there are all-aluminium master cylinders as well.
Forty-Eight may not appear ideal for long distance touring given its 7.9 litres of fuel tank capacity. An overall range of up to 150 km can be expected from one full tank.
