Compared to the 2010-2013 model the chassis is more rigid, the shaft drive is now on the left side, the new dash gets a fancy angle adjustable 5.7" TFT display, the mpg / temperature computer is now standard, the 12V socket has moved to the right fairing, the speakers are higher up, the headlight has been upgraded and the updated adjustable screen gets some help from new side deflectors.
The re-designed and now part liquid cooled engine is up 15 bhp with max torque 500 rpm further up the range and more torque across the rev range. It's easy to identify from the black inserts on the cylinder heads facing forwards rather than down. The 17" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear a 180/60.
The £2,000 more LE Edition gets you the ESA, quickshifter, central locking, alarm, cruise control, Chrome exhaust, heated grips and seat.
