Engine: 4-stroke, four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with DOHC
  • 16-valves, Twin Swirl combustion chambers, plus gear-driven counterbalancer for smooth operation.
  • Light-weight shim-under-bucket valve train with narrow 14 degree valve angle for high combustion chamber efficiency.
  • High efficiency liquid-cooling system for optimum engine operating temperature-including compact air-cooled oil cooler, plus oil-jet piston cooling.
  • SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electro-chemical Material) plated cylinders minimize cylinder size and improve heat dissipation.
  • Large volume 4 into 2 exhaust system with stainless steel head pipes and lightweight aluminum silencers.
Bore/Stroke: 81.0 x 63.0 mm
Displacement: 1,298 cc
Performance: - 9.89 seconds, 136 MPH, quarter mile
- 189 MPH top speed
- 158 horsepower @ 9000 RPM
- 100 ft/lb torque @ 7500 RPM
- 0-60 MPH, 2.6 seconds
- Fuel Mileage: 30-35 MPG
Induction: Electronic fuel injection system, fed by 46mm throttle bodies and ram air intake with large volume airbox. System uses single injector per cylinder with fine spray pattern for good throttle response and fuel efficiency.
Ignition: Digital direct-ignition system combines an ignition coil with each spark plug cap for reduced weight and stronger spark.
Transmission: 6-speed transmission with high-capacity clutch featuring back-torque limiter system for smooth downshifts and scissors-type primary gear for reduced gear noise.1.596:1 primary/2.352:1 final drive ratio
Frame: Rigid twin-spar aluminum frame minimizes weight while maintaining high torsional strength.
Rake/Trail: 24.2 degrees, 97mm/3.8"
