Thumping 90-degree V-Twin
The 1,037cc, 90-degree V-twin, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine is designed to deliver outstanding performance across the entire powerband. This broad capability is necessary to take on the road surfaces that riders encounter during long-distance tours, such as congested streets, gravel roads, high-speed highways and twisty winding roads. This fantastic engine produces maximum torque (103.0Nm) at 4,000rpm, which is much lower than its competitors and provides a more relaxed and enjoyable riding experience with less gear changes as a result.
Suzuki Traction Control System
The traction control system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel the speeds, the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor. It quickly reduces engine output when it detects wheel spin. It controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery. The rider can select three modes (1, 2, and off). Modes 1 and 2 differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode 1 has lower sensitivity; it allows a certain degree of rear wheel spin. Mode 2 has higher sensitivity; the system effects traction control sooner.
The Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) works as a slipper clutch on downshifts. It affords a certain degree of clutch slip to enable smooth downshift operation, thereby reducing rider fatigue. It also works as an assist clutch to make the lever easier to pull.
Comprehensive instrument cluster
The instruments include an analogue tachometer and a brightness-adjustable LCD speedometer. LCD readouts include an odometer, dual trip meters, the gear position, the coolant and ambient temperatures, the voltage, the riding range, the average fuel consumption, the instantaneous fuel consumption, the traction control mode, a fuel gauge, and a clock..
