Standard Features

 Blacked-out, 942 cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4 valves per cylinder, fuel injected, 60-degree V-twin powerplant pumps out impressive power and torque. Maximum torque is reached at 3,500 rpms, for relaxed cruising performance  
 SOHC, pent-roof, 4-valve cylinder heads  
    4-valve design optimizes breathing efficiency and overall engine performance at all rpms  
    31.5 mm intake and 28 mm exhaust valves use friction reducing single valve springs  
    Compact pent-roof combustion chamber design and optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion and 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 and friction  
    Slipper portion of the rocker arm utilizes a needle bearing for reduced camshaft wear and 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 and go traffic  
 Automatic cam chain tensioners reduce mechanical noise and simplify maintenance  
 "Liner-less", ceramic composite-plated cylinder bores  
    Ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum blocks, eliminating the liners and reducing weight  
    Excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery  
    Ceramic coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder and piston, reducing friction and 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 and sound  
 Wet sump lubrication system with easy access, spin-on oil filter and 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 and power  
    ISC or Idle Speed Controller ensures a steady idle  
    4-hole injectors optimize fuel atomization and feature a dual spray pattern for more complete combustion chamber filling  
    "Closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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  
 Tube-type, double-cradle steel frame  
    Provides a natural riding position and roomy ergonomics combined with a low 690 mm (27.2 in.) 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  
 Tube-type, steel, swingarm compliments the frame and features a dual shock rear suspension system  
 Compact 1,570 mm (61.8 in.) wheelbase provides light, agile handling, for a fun riding experience  
 41 mm KYB front fork offers 120 mm (4.7 in.) of wheel travel  
    Good ride comfort and compliance  
    Chip guards help prevent fork tube "nicks" and protect fork seals  
 Adjustable, premium, dual remote reservoir gas charged shock rear suspension. Rear wheel travel is 70 mm (2.8 in.)  
    5-positions of spring preload adjustability to suit load and / or rider preferences  
    Remote reservoir design keeps the shock cooler for more consistent damping performance  
 Single, 298 mm front disc brake features a floating, wave-style disc squeezed by a twin-piston caliper  
    Strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power  
    Wave-style disc offers more surface area than a conventional round disc for excellent heat dissipation  
 298 mm rear wave-style disc brake is squeezed by a single-piston caliper  
    Caliper mounted to the underside of the swingarm, reducing the centre of gravity for light handling  
    Location also hides the caliper for a clean, custom look  
 Lightweight 12-spoke, cast aluminum wheels  
    Front wheel size is MT2.50 x 18  
    Rear wheel size is MT3.50 x 18  
    Both fitted with tubeless tires  
 Short design, front and rear steel fenders for easy painting or customization  
 12 litre slim design fuel tank  
    2.8 litre reserve capacity (low fuel light illuminates)  
    High capacity electric fuel pump  
 Separate rider and passenger seats feature a dual texture, premium buckskin / suede design  
    Good comfort and support  
    Seat height is 690 mm or 27.2 in. off the ground, enhancing rider confidence  
    Narrow design through seat-fuel tank junction makes it easier to get both feet on the ground  
    Passenger seat can be easily removed if desired  
 Footpegs are positioned more rearward than on a traditional cruiser for a more natural and upright riding position  
 Conventional low handlebar offers an upright riding position  
    Excellent rider comfort  
    Bar can be changed to a different "bend" for easy customization or personal preferences  
 Triple clamp-mounted LCD digital meter / instrument  
    Functions include speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel reserve trip meter (counts km since low fuel light activated), clock and range of warning lights  
    Self-diagnostic function  
    Instrument functions can be "tabbed" through and reset using the RHS handlebar switch gear, allowing the operator to change instrument functions without taking hands off the bars
