It's a 52. That's a fairly small bike(to me anyway).

My first DBX was an XL and weighed 24lbs 4oz. My current one is a L and weighs 23lbs 12oz. Both were bog stock. So enlarge that Moto to a 56 or 58 and you're going to see the weight climb as well.

WOW beautiful bike.

I like interrupter brakes, but then I ride on the tops a lot.

That's a good data point. One size equaled a half pound in that case. Was that like a 3 or 4 cm difference in size?

Not sure,it's been years since I had the XL. The L is pretty much a 56,I'd say the XL was a 58 or 59.
