The bike has a 450cc single overhead cam and a single-cylinder engine with a bore and stroke of 95mm x 63.4mm is quite impressive, and it’s great to hear it was specifically designed for performance and weight reduction.
The five-speed gearbox is also a nice touch, as it should offer a good balance of acceleration and top speed. And the Brembo hydraulics system and Suter anti-hopping clutch are high-quality components should provide excellent stopping power and prevent rear-wheel hop under hard braking.
The engine was last updated for the 2023 model year. However, it’s a new design incorporating the latest technologies and materials. And at just 59 pounds, it’s incredibly lightweight for a 450cc engine.
It is a high-performance motorcycle designed for serious riders who demand the best power and handling.
The 48mm WP XACT front fork with AER technology is a high-performance suspension system can provide a smooth ride and absorb shocks effectively.
The WP XACT rear shock with a CFD-optimized main piston and tool-free adjustment, a high-quality suspension component, can help improve the bike’s handling and stability.
The front suspension travel of 285mm (11.22 inches) and rear suspension travel of 266mm (10.27 inches) indicate this bike is designed for off-road use or riding on rough terrain.
The generous ground clearance of 281mm (just over 11 inches) is also valuable for off-road riding. Even at high speeds, the Brembo brakes, with a 310mm disc up front and a 220mm disc in the rear, are high-performance braking systems can provide excellent stopping.
The motorcycle’s wheels are Alpina spoked wheels with a diameter of 16.5 inches in the front and 17 inches in the rear. These wheels are wrapped in Metzeler Racetec SM rubber to provide excellent grip, traction, and agility characteristics. The motorcycle also has a polyamide-reinforced, two-piece aluminium subframe, CNC-machined triple clamps, and a Pro Taper handlebar.

Moreover, the motorcycle has a handlebar-mounted map select switch, allowing riders to activate the launch, traction, and quickshifter. It also enables riders to switch between two different engine maps conveniently.
The motorcycle’s fuel tank holds 1.9 gallons, and the fuel pump has been repositioned, ensuring the tank empties further and riders get more time in the saddle per tank.
