The bike is still powered by the same Liquid Cooled Parallel twin Engine, which makes around 69 PS of power @8,500 RPM and 64 Nm of torque @7,000 RPM. The engine still utilizes a DOHC setup with 8-Valves and has a compression ratio of 10.8:1.
Dimension wise, the bike still has the same weight 216 kg (kerb) and a 21-litre fuel tank. The range of the bike is really good because of it and that’s why it is a preferable choice among hardcore touring enthusiasts.
