The ‘S’ tune provides up to 6.6% more peak power than the previous generation with 111HP @ 11,250rpm and delivers a 7.3% increase in peak torque at 53.8 lb.-ft. @ 9,100rpm.

There are riding modes on all models to help the rider better harness the increased power and torque in every riding condition. A richer sound track, from a lighter, free flowing exhaust and revised airbox delivers an intoxicating and more distinctive induction howl.

Stronger than ever acceleration and slicker gear changes are achieved through a combination of revised gearbox geometry and shorter 1st and 2nd gear ratios. In addition, on the R and RS models, a new slip and assist clutch set up delivers lighter clutch action and reduced lever effort for more control and riding comfort.
