Braking power from the radial-mount/six-piston calipers was good, although we’d prefer a little more progressiveness; really aggressive braking required a lot of lever effort. The OEM-spec Dunlop D210 tires offered decent grip and handling, but their ride was overly stiff, compromising traction on rough pavement.
