649cc Parallel Twin-cylinder, DOHC Engine
  • Most compact engine in its category, helps reduce the dimensions of the entire motorcycle
  • Triangular crank and transmission shaft layout makes it short from front to back
  • Semi-dry sump oil system reduces overall engine height
  • The narrow pitch of the chrome composite plated aluminum cylinders helps reduce engine width
  • Tuned to deliver smooth, responsive power in the low-to mid-rpm range for exceptional roll-on response – ideal in negotiating city traffic
  • 180-degree crankshaft plus balancer shaft smoothes engine pulses
  • Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the undersides of the pistons to aid cooling
  • Muffler with 3-way catalyzer and bullettip opening is mounted below the engine to help lower the center of gravity and aid weight centralization
Liquid Cooling
  • Keeps engine temperatures consistent for long engine life and sustained power during hard use
  • Allows closer engine tolerances for more horsepower
  • Coolant is routed through the engine cases reducing the number of external hoses
Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)
  • Utilizes 38mm Keihin throttle bodies with ECU controlled sub throttle valves for optimum performance and rideability
  • Sub throttles, located behind the main throttle valves, give the DFI system a more precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburetor
  • Automatic fast idle system makes starting and warm-up easy
  • Precise fuel injection and exhaust catalyzer significantly reduce emissions
Digital Capacitor Discharge Ignition (CDI) System
  • Microprocessor controlled timing never requires adjustment and is ultra responsive to engine needs
  • Spark plug mounted “stick” ignition coils are compact and help reduce weight
Six-Speed Transmission
  • Cassette style transmission with the shafts and shift drum in a compact layout that is easily removed as a single unit from the case for easier maintenance
High Tensile Steel Trellis Frame
  • Trellis frame is small and light and Narrow at the knees and feet for increased rider comfort and control
  • Designed using 3-dimensional computer analysis to achieve the optimum stiffness balance for better handling
Single Shock Rear Suspension
  • Aluminum gull-wing swingarm and offset, laydown single rear shock complement the frame design via an integrated line flowing from the steering head to the rear hub
  • Short, compact frame and engine design allows the swingarm to be longer, which helps improve overall handling
  • Showa shock has adjustable preload and rebound damping and uses a free piston and two-stage damping valves for smooth action during initial compression that becomes much firmer near the end of the stroke for a more planted feel
Long-Travel Fork
  • 41mm Inverted fork with stiff springs combines the best of dual sport and sportbike-type suspensions, to deliver excellent performance over a wide range of conditions
  • Tapered, relatively short outer tubes help provide the ideal stiffness balance to compliment chassis settings
  • Fork height, preload and rebound damping can all be adjusted to fine-tune the suspension to specific conditions or riding styles
Petal Style Brake Discs
  • Braking duties handled by dual 300mm front petal discs with two-piston calipers and a single 220mm rear petal disc with a single-piston caliper
  • Same rotor design as found on the Ninja supersport machines, petal design rotors offer improved cooling and warp resistance
Six-spoke wheels
  • Also found on the Ninja ZX™-6R and ZX-10R; the six-spoke design requires much less material between spokes so that the rim thickness is thinner and overall wheel weight is reduced
Comfortable Ergonomics
  • Each part of the two-piece seat was designed with a different thickness and firmness of foam to optimize comfort for both rider and passenger
  • Passenger seat and grab bars were designed to provide a natural seating position for added comfort
  • Easy-to-read instrument panel has a large analog tachometer and digital readout for the speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer, dual trip meters and clock. White LED backlighting provides increased visibility at night
Adjustable Windscreen
  • Three different settings, each 20mm apart, allows riders to set the windscreen height to suit their preferences
