Engine Features
  • Blacked out, 942cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel injected, 60° V-twin power plant pumps out impressive power & torque. Maximum torque is reached at 3,000 rpms, for relaxed cruising performance: 4-valve design optimizes breathing efficiency & overall engine performance at all rpms; 31.5 mm intake & 28 mm exhaust valves use friction reducing single valve springs; compact pent roof combustion chamber design & optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion & excellent power with reduced emissions; 25,000 km valve adjustment intervals
  • SOHC, pent-roof, 4-valve cylinder heads: 4-valve design optimizes breathing efficiency & overall engine performance at all rpms; 31.5 mm intake & 28 mm exhaust valves use friction reducing single valve springs; compact pent roof combustion chamber design & optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion & excellent power with reduced emissions; 25,000 km valve adjustment intervals
  • Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves: Y shaped roller rocker arms allows a greater amount of valve lift without causing excessive camshaft wear & friction; slipper portion of the rocker arm utilizes a needle bearing for reduced camshaft wear & reduced sliding resistance (friction)
  • No fuss, traditional air-cooled engine design: cylinders have a tapered "V" appearance to highlight the V-twin engine design; cooling fins have been optimized for reliable cooling even in stop & go traffic
  • Automatic cam chain tensioners reduce mechanical noise & simplify maintenance: ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum blocks, eliminating the liners & reducing weight; excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery; ceramic coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power; extended cylinder service life
  • "Liner-less", ceramic composite-plated cylinder bores: ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum blocks, eliminating the liners & reducing weight; excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery; ceramic coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power; extended cylinder service life
  • Flat top, lightweight forged aluminum pistons: less reciprocating mass for fast engine response; reduced mechanical vibration for excellent reliability
  • Single pin style crankshaft: design accentuates V-twin engine character, pulse feel & sound
  • Wet sump lubrication system with easy access, spin on oil filter & drain plug for easy oil changes: system uses throttle position sensor (TPS) to help optimize intake air flow & power; ISC or idle speed controller ensures a steady idle; 4 - hole injectors optimize fuel atomization & feature a dual spray pattern for more complete combustion chamber filling; "closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions; oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of aftermarket "slip-on" mufflers will not affect the closed loop system; fuel injection benefits include; excellent throttle response, choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • Classic side mounted 2.3 litre air box houses an easy access, a high-flow viscous paper-type filter: system uses throttle position sensor (TPS) to help optimize intake air flow & power; ISC or idle speed controller ensures a steady idle; 4 - hole injectors optimize fuel atomization & feature a dual spray pattern for more complete combustion chamber filling; "closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions; oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of aftermarket "slip-on" mufflers will not affect the closed loop system; fuel injection benefits include; excellent throttle response, choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • "Closed loop", dual bore, 35 mm throttle body fuel injection system with linear throttle response for easy riding: system uses throttle position sensor (TPS) to help optimize intake air flow & power; ISC or idle speed controller ensures a steady idle; 4 - hole injectors optimize fuel atomization & feature a dual spray pattern for more complete combustion chamber filling; "closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions; oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of aftermarket "slip-on" mufflers will not affect the closed loop system; fuel injection benefits include; excellent throttle response, choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission: optimized gear ratios match engine power for strong acceleration; 5th gear offers reduced engine rpms at highway speeds; clutch is an "outer pull" design for light, easy lever effort
  • Special narrow design belt drive final drive: narrow 21 mm wide belt design; cleaner & quieter than chain drive... no messy chain splatter; low maintenance... no regular adjustments or lubrication required; belt drive system simplifies customization
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI): produces a strong spark for fast starts; provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • 2 into 1 exhaust system: large diameter header pipes for maximum flow; dual stage muffler produces a low, throaty V-Twin growl; heat shields protect rider & passenger from hot components; 3-way honeycomb catalyzer reduces harmful exhaust emissions
  • Air Injection System injects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, further reducing exhaust emissions.
Chassis
  • Tube type, double cradle steel frame: provides a natural riding position & roomy ergonomics combined with a low 690 mm (27.2") seat height; frame utilizes a rigid engine mounting system optimizing the overall chassis rigidity balance for superior handling; engine mounting position provides a low center of gravity for light, easy handling
