It delivers up to 170 hp with a peak torque of almost 13 kgm to achieve slick and smooth-running performance on demand.

Engine heat diverted away from the rider

Side radiator vents. The position of the front radiators has been designed to allow for optimal vehicle weight distribution: the fins on the side of the radiator cooling ducts allows for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
