Features

Chassis Features

  • A narrow frame combines thin chrome-moly steel tubes for exceptional torsional rigidity with minimal weight. The backbone tube, front down tube and steering head gussets form the dry-sump engine oil tank. A bolt-on aluminum sub-frame helps reduce weight and simplify maintenance
  • Long travel (11.3 in.), 49 mm cartridge-style forks with protective rubber boots, feature adjustable compression / rebound damping and adjustable spring preload for smooth performance on all types of on / off-road terrain
  • Rear shock absorber features 11.6 in. of travel, compression damping / preload adjustments and connects to a lightweight aluminum swingarm through a progressive linkage system
  • Sure stopping power is supplied by a 250 mm front disc with a dual-piston caliper and a 220 mm rear disc brake with a single-piston caliper

Electrical Features

  • Electric start system provides convenient operation and features a lightweight starter motor and a compact 6.5 amp maintenance-free battery
  • Compact digital instrument cluster with speedometer, odometer, and twin-trip meters with addition / subtraction capability, clock, timer and stopwatch functions
  • On-road legal lighting with bright 60 / 55 watt H4 halogen headlight, compact tail / stoplight, lightweight, rubber-mounted turn signals and horn

Engine Features

  • A compact design, 398 cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, dry-sump engine produces strong low-RPM power. Its compact 4-valve cylinder head features large 36mm intake valves and 29mm exhaust valves help produce broad, tractable power and torque ready for any terrain
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Materials (SCEM) cylinder is durable, lightweight and provides superior heat transfer
  • Digitally mapped DC-CDI system monitors throttle position/engine rpm and adjusts ignition timing to maintain efficient combustion
  • Forged aluminum piston is 10 percent lighter than a cast piston and receives additional oil-cooling through a crankcase oil jet
  • A Mikuni™ 36 mm carburetor is fed by a 6-liter air box to achieve smooth throttle response. The left side cover has quick-release fasteners for easy access to the air filter
  • Magnesium-alloy clutch, magneto and cam covers contribute to the bike’s low weight
  • A compact 5-speed transmission utilizes a cable-operated clutch with separate outer cover for simplified clutch maintenance

Other Features

  • A pouch on the rear fender carries the tool kit and owner’s manual
  • Special design mirrors rotate to avoid damage in case of impact
