Riding the motorcycle

Running-in recommendations

Maximum rpm
Rotation speed for running-in period and during
standard use (rpm):
1) up to 1000 km;
2) from 1000 to 2500 km.
Up to 1000 km
During the first 1000 km, keep an eye on the rev
counter. It should never exceed: 5,500÷6,000 rpm.
During the first hours of riding, it is advisable to run
the engine at varying load and rpm, though still within
recommended limit.
To this end, roads with plenty of bends and even
slightly hilly areas are ideal for a most efficient
running-in of engine, brakes and suspensions.
For the first 100 km use the brakes gently. Avoid
sudden or prolonged braking. This will allow the
friction material on the brake pads to bed in against
the brake discs. For all mechanical parts of the
motorcycle to adapt to one another and above all not
to adversely affect the life of basic engine parts, it is
advisable to avoid harsh accelerations and not to run
the engine at high rpm for too long, especially uphill.
Furthermore, the drive chain should be inspected
frequently. Lubricate as required.
