Engine Features

Compact 645 cc, 90 degree liquid-cooled V-twin, DOHC 8-valve engine tuned for strong low to mid rpm power

90 degree V-twin cylinder layout eliminates primary vibration without a counterbalancer, keeping the engine simple and compact

Lightweight chain-driven DOHC, shim-under-bucket valve system with 31 mm intake valves and 25.5 mm exhaust valves

Electronic fuel injection system featuring the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) – maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output – includes Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS)

High capacity liquid-cooling system and oil cooler enhance engine performance and durability – coolant routing is integrated with the clutch cover and engine case for a cleaner look and reduced weight

Smooth-shifting 6-speed transmission with vertically staggered transmission shafts for a shorter, more compact crankcase

Plastic outer clutch cover and engine sprocket cover for reduced weight and noise

Lightweight 2-into-1 exhaust system tuned for strong low and mid-range torque
