The interceptor. The athlete. Aerodynamic, avant-garde. Do you know of another sporty bike with this profile? A bike that develops such pulling power with 175 bhp that it take the heat out of many a 200 bhp bike? But a bike you can still take out on a quick trip simply because it has great everyday suitability? At the same time a technological treat? The reasons; 103 foot pounds of torque from 1,293 cubic centimeters and at 8,250 revolutions per minute too. With a throaty sound from a cool, hexagonal tube. With catalytic converter and exhaust valve. And with fuel consumption and exhaust emission values which would suit many a machine with half the dynamic performance.
With this jet, the whole concept of speed moves into a new dimension. This in-line four-cylinder delivers its power in such a way that you can almost feel it when standing still. Thats because within the engine speed ranges in which you move more than 80 percent of the time i.e. the lower and medium speed ranges it delivers performance from the first yard. The real thing. And in terms of safety features, this machine is unique; ABS as standard with ASC and ESA optional. And the extras are amazing: race through the gears with the automatic shift function, pure racing in view with the 2D HP dashboard.
