Powerful Parallel Twin Engine
Efficiently-tuned 296 cc Parallel Twin engine produces smooth, torquey power at low and medium rpm and powerful acceleration at high rpm. Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve Parallel Twin delivers smooth, responsive power at low and medium rpm and hard hitting power at high rpm. Already smoother than a single-cylinder, the engine features a balancer to help dampen engine vibrations, contributing to a very smooth ride feel as well as comfortable cruising. Lightweight pistons feature a hard alumite coating (on the piston crown and extending past the top land and top ring groove) for increased durability.
