The powerful 493cc, SOHC, four-stroke, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine is tuned to deliver top-end solid power and a broad powerband. The engine height and low seat height result from the engine head and cylinder being canted forward for a low center of gravity.

For smooth running, the engine also has a balance shaft. The small, four-valve cylinder head features large intake valves and straight intake ports for exceptional charging efficiency. Nut and screw valve lash adjuster makes maintenance easy. Excellent heat transfer and ring sealing are achieved using a SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) coating on the lightweight aluminum cylinder, providing exceptional combustion chamber performance.

With 7.7 inches of wheel travel, the fully independent A-arm/I-beam rear suspension features large-diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers with five-way spring preload adjustment. A wide-diameter rear stabilizer bar with responsive bushings helps control body motion, reducing rider jolts. For ultimate braking performance, twin hydraulic front disc brakes utilize high-lever ratio, fluid lines, and high-friction brake pad material.

The sealed, multi-plate rear brake system’s footbrake-lever ratio offers excellent ride control. The clutch-type construction of the rear brake results in low maintenance, outstanding durability, and reduced unsprung weight. Suzuki’s T-shaped comfortable seat allows riders to move freely in challenging or fast terrain.
