Smooth engine power you can use.
Twin exhaust ports use an ovalized exit and a new, single downpipe and muffler save 1.24kg. There’s more power from 5,000rpm up and for stronger, smoother low-rpm torque, the airbox is larger with tool-free access to the filter. For optimised intake efficiency it feeds a redesigned throttle body and a steeper injector angle sprays fuel all the way back to the butterfly, improving feel. The decompression system is new and gives more stable operation at low rpm, increasing stall-resistance. And the clutch has an extra plate and is also now hydraulic, improving both control and feel at the lever.
