not sure on the control factor, but this setup actually allows for less rotating mass which is the whole reason for the design. The perimeter mount rotor allows them to use a much lighter front wheel because there is less stress being applied on the rotor lugs, thus less material is needed. Plus there is only one rotor without a carrier attached to the hub. Then there is only one caliper, one brake line, two brake pads which makes the entire front end lighter. The important thing to remember about Buell is that form ALWAYS follows function.
