Features may include: FRAME The lightweight trellis frame is made of high-grade chromium-molybdenum steel and developed to ensure precise handling and instills complete confidence in the rider. Detailed feedback is transmitted to the rider thanks to precisely calculated torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex. POLYAMIDE REAR SUBFRAME AND TANK The self-supporting rear subframe with integrated 3.4-gallon fuel tank is perfectly positioned for the best possible weight distribution. Produced in a thermoplastic rotational molding process, the single-piece construction weighs only 5.2 kg and is made of high-strength polyamide. ALUMINIUM SWINGARM Maximum precision and an extremely low weight of only 8.6 pounds are guaranteed by eliminating welding in the single-component construction of the aluminum gravity die-cast swingarm. WP SUSPENSION (FRONT) The split fork developed by WP Performance Systems has 215 mm wheel travel, and features better damping and an easier setup than traditional forks thanks to the separate damping circuits in the fork legs. The left leg is dedicated to compression damping, while the right fork leg is for rebound damping. WP SUSPENSION (REAR) The completely adjustable rear shock absorber by WP Performance Systems features rebound damping adjustment as well as a high and low compression damping adjustment. The 250 mm rear wheel travel guarantees perfect control in every circumstance, be it on tight and twisty mountain roads or in crowded city centers. ENGINE The single overhead camshaft, liquid cooled, single cylinder engine features the latest in design and electronic technology. An outstanding maximum power output of 74 hp at 8,000 rpm and torque of 52.4 ft-lb at 6,750 rpm leave the rider in no doubt of the performance packed inside this lightweight unit. CYLINDER HEAD The compact design of the single overhead camshaft, 4-valve cylinder head features 42 mm intake valves and 34 mm exhaust valves actuated by a robust rocker arm system which delivers precise valve timing at high engine speeds. Ignition is via a double spark plug layout, each of which has an individual ignition timing control for optimal fuel combustion in the large bore combustion chamber. RIDE-BY-WIRE THROTTLE The Keihin electronic fuel injection system features a 50 mm throttle body with no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip. As the rider twists the throttle open or closed, the throttle valve is electronically controlled by the engine management system (EMS).
