For the F 800 GS models with the very effective brake it would be ideal to have better feel with less applied force,
i.e. reduced lever length.
The VarioLever makes it possible to brake using only two or three fingers without pinching the other fingers.
An enormous relief for street and off-road applications. Of course, when the
lever is completely extended (roughly corresponding to the length of the original lever) it is possible to brake with
all four fingers again.
For off-road riding, the shortened lever is also protected from being ripped off – even in the case of falls. This
could reduce high repair work costs and therefore rescues many a holiday or off-road trip.
Another innovation is the easy adjustability of the lever reach, which can easily be applied whilst riding – important to compensate for brake fade (e.g. at high load, fast mountain bends). In addition, the reach can be changed to bring the lever closer to the handlebar, making it easier to reach.
This is made possible by a large rotating adjuster that can easily be operated even when wearing thick
gloves. The extraordinarily intricate construction is also extremely robust: Even when the lever is fully extended,
forces of more than 60 kg/132 lb can be transmitted without difficulty at the outer tip. The modular construction
opens up a whole range of colour combination options. We’ve selected what we consider the most attractive colour combinations. Made from strong aluminium (AL 7075 T6), the preferred type for aerospace applications. Anodised surface finish.
