In addition, by arranging his cam chain on the right side of the engine, the distance between the cylinder and the carburetor is made equal, the ideal intake/exhaust system is realized, and the weight of each part such as the crankshaft is thoroughly reduced. , Friction loss is reduced.

In addition, the cylinder and upper crankcase are integrated, and the transmission shaft is placed on a horizontal line to reduce the size of the upper part of the crankcase. At the same time, by arranging the intake and exhaust valves at a narrow angle, the cylinder head is downsized, making it a lightweight and compact engine, which greatly contributes to improving the degree of freedom in frame design.

In addition, by arranging a compact and highly efficient water-cooled oil cooler that cools the engine oil using the cooling water of the engine on the front of the crankcase, it contributes to the compactness of the entire vehicle body while enabling simple piping. are doing.

The frame and suspension adopt a steel twin tube frame that balances suppleness and rigidity at a high level while matching the compact engine shape. The optimum ride quality is obtained, and the lightweight and highly rigid large diameter (41 mm) front fork and the rear suspension with a damper structure that demonstrates smooth damping force characteristics provide a comfortable ride and excellent ride quality. It has both running performance. In addition, a center stand is standard equipment, giving consideration to daily maintenance.

The brake is equipped with a hydraulic double disc with excellent braking feeling on the front and a hydraulic single disc on the rear. Disc pads use sintered alloy pads for both front and rear, and springs are equipped by combining radial tires with a flatness of 60% (front 120/60ZR17, rear 160/60ZR17) and lightweight 6-spoke aluminum wheels. The lower weight is reduced and a light running taste is realized.

Although the exterior has a dynamic design with low aerodynamic resistance, it pursues thorough air management, such as adopting a direct air intake that directly introduces outside air into the engine. In addition, the rear grab rail and loading hooks that are useful for touring etc. are equipped in 4 places on the left and right, making it easy to use.
