Compact LED taillight mounted in a flexible base

Additional weight savings with magnesium valve cover, clutch cover, and magneto cover

Narrow profile with smooth transitions between the tank, seat and bodywork

Chrome-moly steel frame is torsionally strong with minimal weight. The backbone tube, front down tube, and steering head gussets form the dry-sump engine oil tank

Automatic decompression system for quick/easy engine starts (also equipped with manual system)

SCEM-plated cylinder (nickel-silicon-phosphorous) is lighter and more durable than an iron liner with excellent heat transfer properties

Forged aluminum piston is 10% lighter than a cast piston and receives additional oil cooling to the piston crown through a crankcase oil jet

Quick throttle response is provided by a Keihin™ FCR39 carburetor fed by 6-liter airbox, (CA. model – Mikuni BSR36) The left side cover has quick-release fasteners for easy access to the air filter

Compact 5-speed transmission utilizes a cable-operated clutch with separate outer cover for simplified clutch maintenance
