For the BMW 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 road applications.
This also applies to the clutch lever. Of course, when the lever is completely extended (roughly corresponding to
the length of the series lever) it is possible to brake with all four fingers again. 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 pivot mechanism 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 of strong aluminium (AL 7075 T6), the preferred type for aerospace applications. Anodised surface finish.
- Much better than stock, look and feel are better
Vario Levers 2011 R1200RT
- Watched the Wunderlich video, and installation was as simple as shown. However, I ended up needind another person to tap the bushing in place, because I needed 2 hands to center the parts with the spring pressure. Look and work great.
- They look great and are a little closer to the handlebars than my stock levers. I can ride with two fingers for long periods of time very comfortably.
