903cc V-twin

• Smooth and reliable engine tuned to deliver a healthy dose of torque at low rpm

• Gear-driven balancer allows use of single-pin crankshaft without excessive vibration

• Rubber mounted to reduce engine vibration at all speeds

Four-valve Cylinder Head

• Provides maximum valve area for optimum flow, creating more power and low-end torque

Electronic Fuel Injection

• Superb performance and rideability thanks to dual throttle bodies with sub-throttles

• The ECU controlled sub-throttles are located behind the main throttle valve, allowing the DFI® system to provide more precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburetor

• Fine-atomizing fuel injectors produce a fine fuel mist for optimal acceleration, combustion and fuel consumption

Kevlar-Reinforced Belt Drive

• Lower unsprung weight than a shaft drive to improve ride quality and suspension action

• Efficiently transfers power to the rear wheel

Double Cradle Frame

• Very rigid, large-diameter box section backbone allows for a larger fuel tank and lightweight handling at low speeds

• Fork offset and frame geometry combine for light, low-effort handling at low speeds

• Long wheelbase contributes to a relaxed highway ride

• Triangular swingarm has a hardtail appearance, with a single shock hidden beneath the seat

• Long and low chassis for minimal seat height, maximum visual impact

41mm Front Fork
