The engine features a new digital fuel injection that comprises up of the 36 mm of throttle bodies that gives a typical mid-range response. The sub-throttle valves are located behind the main throttle valves, and EC U controls them. So, the EFI has smoother and sensitive throttle response. The use of lightweight crankshaft design augments the engine’s quick-revving character. There is a secondary engine balancer that eliminates the excess vibration, although a desirable amount is left in that add in the overall bike’s character and acceleration feeling. The connecting passageways between the cylinders help in reducing the pumping loss, plus it improves the high-rpm performance.

The twin-tube rear frame section provides in the low seat height and an easy reach to the ground while minimizing vibration being transferred through the seat.

There is a fully inverted front fork of 41 mm that features step-less rebound damping while the spring preload adjustability in the left fork tube. The linkage is placed on the top of the swingarm to achieve better mass centralization, plus it makes room for an exhaust pre-chamber.
