Power: 1854cc, air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 4 valves per cylinder, 48°, V-twin power plant produces massive torque and class leading acceleration

Handling: Traditional pushrod valve actuation keeps engine height down for a lower centre of gravity and ensures more uniform heat dissipation due to absence of a cam chain case. A lower centre of gravity helps to ensure light, easy handling.

Storage: Beautifully styled, 23.5 litre, semi hard, reinforced leather saddlebags provide ample storage for causal weekend tours.

Engine Features
  • High-performance, 1854cc (113 cubic inch) air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 4 valves per cylinder, 48°, V-twin power plant produces massive torque & class leading acceleration from very low rpms.
  • Maximum torque occurs at 2,250 rpm while maximum power occurs at 4,500 rpm, providing exciting acceleration with great pulse & torque feel.
  • OHV, 4-valve "pent roof" cylinder heads: compact pent roof combustion chambers with 9.5:1 compression ratio; 4-valve design optimizes breathing efficiency & overall engine performance at all rpms; 36 mm intake & 31 mm exhaust valves; two spark plugs per cylinder means faster, more complete combustion for maximum power; special oil passage near exhaust valve seat improves cooling & durability; 25,000 km valve adjustment interval
  • Traditional pushrod valve actuation with special short design rocker arms: ensures more uniform heat dissipation due to absence of cam chain case; reduces engine height for a lower centre of gravity for light easy handling; short design intake & exhaust rocker arms reduce inertia during higher-rpm use
  • Twin, crankcase-mounted, high-lift cams and hydraulic valve lifters: strong torque & class leading acceleration; hydraulic valve lifters reduce maintenance & tune-up requirements
  • Mechanical centrifugal decompression mechanism: located in each of the exhaust camshafts; ensures fast, easy starts
  • Single pin style crankshaft: design accentuates V-twin engine character, pulse feel & sound; optimized flywheel mass & "damper-less" crankshaft allows the rider to feel the directness of the engine's power
  • For each rotation of the rear wheel, in 5th gear, the crank spins 3.14 times providing an outstanding rear wheel driving force feeling to the rider.
  • Dual engine counter balancers reduce engine vibration for excellent rider & passenger comfort.
  • Dry sump oil lubrication system: optimized to ensure maximum lubrication & cooling; oil jet nozzles direct oil at underside of the pistons to reduce piston & rod temperatures; dry sump system reduces engine height (no deep oil pan), which lowers the centre of gravity for great handling and a lightweight feel
  • Special "dual chamber" crankcase design: front section for the crank assembly; rear section for the transmission; two, 3-rotor high capacity oil pumps optimizes oil flow in each of the two main sections of the engine
  • Huge 100mm "ceramic composite-plated" cylinder bores: excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery; ceramic coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power; extended cylinder service life
  • "Controlled forged construction" aluminum pistons with Alumite coating: less reciprocating mass for fast engine response; reduced mechanical vibration; Alumite coating reduces friction
  • Cylinder cooling fin thickness & depth is optimized: optimum heat dissipation (eliminating the need for liquid cooling); traditional, stylish air-cooled engine appearance; each cooling fin is specially polished to create "shining" highlights
  • 43mm, "closed loop", dual bore, throttle body fuel injection system: system features Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) to help optimize intake air flow & power; system features Idle Speed Control (ISC) to ensure stable idling; 12 hole injectors optimize fuel atomization & feature a dual spray pattern for more complete combustion chamber filling; excellent throttle response; "closed loop system" uses dual oxygen sensors to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions; oxygen sensors are located before the mufflers, so the use of aftermarket "slip-on" mufflers will not affect the closed loop system; fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission: optimized gear ratios match engine power for strong acceleration; 4th and 5th gears are overdrive gears for reduced engine rpms at highway speeds; classic heel - toe shifter with adjustable front & rear sections for various foot sizes. Rear section may be removed if desired.
  • Hydraulic "assist and slipper" clutch: heavy duty hydraulically operated wet clutch; reduced clutch lever pull / effort at the handlebar by 20% (assist function); back torque limiter a.k.a "slipper clutch" reduce the effects of engine braking when downshifting or decelerating; low maintenance, self-adjusting hydraulic master cylinder provides smooth clutch operation
  • Low maintenance belt drive final drive: cleaner & quieter than chain drive & no messy chain splatter; significantly reduces maintenance Vs a chain... no regular adjustments or lubrication required; belt drive system simplifies customization; belt is embedded with carbon fibre cords for incredible strength & durability
  • State-of-the-art Electronic Control Unit (ECU): ensures precisely metered fuel delivery; optimal ignition spark control using 3D mapping for each cylinder
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI): produces a strong spark for fast starts; provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • 3.5 litre dual inlet air box: front & rear inlets for maximum breathing efficiency; viscous paper type air filter is used.
  • High-performance, 2-into-1 exhaust system: large diameter header pipes for maximum flow; heat shields protect rider & passenger from hot components; 3-way honeycomb catalyzer reduces harmful exhaust emissions
  • Lightweight titanium EXUP exhaust power valve: system helps prevent the "blow back" phenomenon caused by "valve overlap"; EXUP system eliminates "flat spots" in the power band; improves acceleration, reduces fuel consumption & reduces emissions
  • Easy access, spin-on type oil filter.
  • Air Injection System (AIS) injects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, reducing exhaust emissions.
  • Special "air cut valve" reduces backfiring when decelerating or coasting off throttle.
Chassis Features
  • High tech, cast aluminum double-cradle frame: reduces weight, while balancing strength & rigidity for excellent handling; engine is a stressed member of the frame for added rigidity; critical head pipe area features box type construction for additional strength; frame not only provides excellent handling characteristics but also compliments the beautiful flowing lines of the entire machine
  • Key chassis geometry: 31.2 degree caster angle, 152mm of trail, 1715 mm (67.5") wheelbase.
  • Lightweight C.F. die cast aluminum swingarm: optimized rigidity balance for excellent stability & handling; great rear wheel traction & control; C.F. die casting process allows for beautiful shapes that are both strong & light
  • 46mm KYB front fork offers 130mm (5.1") of wheel travel: exceptionally stable handling & great ride comfort; large diameter, slash cut, fork covers enhance the neo-streamlined styling
  • Lightweight aluminum upper & lower triple clamps: reduce overall unit weight; excellent rigidity balance for light handling
  • Adjustable link-type, single shock rear suspension with 110 mm (4.3") of rear wheel travel: single shock suspension not only reduces weight, but delivers outstanding ride comfort; KYB shock is horizontally positioned under the engine lowering the centre of gravity & centralizing mass for agile handling with a light feel; shock is hidden to provide that classic "hardtail" look; adjustments include threaded spring preload (9mm)
  • Dual 298mm floating front discs squeezed by ultra-rigid, 4-piston, monoblock calipers: serious stopping power; great lever feel & feedback
  • Large 310mm rear disc is squeezed by a single piston caliper: caliper is mounted below the swingarm for a lower center of gravity & that "hidden look"
