features and benefits

ENGINE

  • Blacked out, 942 cc, 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.
  • 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.
  • "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.
  • Classic side mounted 2.3 litre air box houses an easy access, a high-flow viscous paper-type filter.
  • "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.
