– Aerodynamic bodywork features reduced frontal area, compact headlight/taillight and turn signals, plus a small lightweight tail section.

– New-generation fuel injection system with 16-bit ECM for quick processing speed, and detailed mapping for high fuel efficiency and smooth throttle response

– Compact instrument cluster features a step-motor-driven analog tach. and digital speedometer – also includes LCD odometer-tripmeters, coolant temp., clock and EFI diagnostics.

– Frame geometry and swingarm length are designed for more forward weight distribution for quick turning ability, rear wheel traction and straight-line tracking – frame is lightweight and compact for optimum balance between rigidity & weight.

– Cartridge-type front forks with 43mm inner tubes and fully adjustable damping and spring preload.

– Fully adjustable piggy-back shock absorber features an aluminum body and heat compensation system for more consistent damping performance.

– Lightweight 4-piston front brake calipers with aluminum-alloy pistons.

– Three-spoke design cast aluminum wheels


– Compact & lightweight 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine is lightweight and compact.

– Cylinder head features a narrow 28° included valve angle (13° intake, 15° exhaust), creating a more compact combustion chamber, higher compression ratio and a straighter intake tract for improved power.

– Throttle body design positions the injectors at a steep 60° angle for an optimum fuel spray pattern and fuel atomization, increased power and sharp throttle response.

– Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) maintains more accurate air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and improved engine torque.

– Specially shaped ram-air intake ducts feed a large 8 liter airbox and flat-panel air filter for optimum intake airflow.

– One-piece cylinder block and upper crankcase section form a strong, lightweight structure that eliminates the need for external oil lines to the cylinder head.

– Durable SCEM-plated cylinders house lightweight forged pistons with low-tension rings to reduce friction.

– Lightweight stainless steel 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system with bolt-on aluminum muffler.

– Large radiator and aluminum oil cooler, both with high cooling capacity.

– Close-ratio 6-speed transmission and high capacity coil spring-type clutch.

– Additional weight reduction through small diameter crankshaft journals, lightweight conrods, camshafts and narrow diameter valve stems.

– Lightweight magnesium valve cover, magneto cover, drive sprocket cover, clutch cover and starter clutch cover.
