  • Light and easy to manoeuvre

Cons

  • Budget for a better exhaust
  • Minimal wind protection

What Is It?

Power is provided by a liquid cooled 471cc parallel twin four stroke engine, producing 46.9bhp at 8,500rpm and maximum torque at 7,000rpm. The engine is a stressed member of the frame.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and swingarm
  • 320mm wavy disc up front with Nissin 2 piston caliper
  • 240mm wavy disc at the rear with single piston caliper

  • 41mm Showa fork with 120mm travel

The LCD console gives you the usual speedo, revs, fuel level as well as dual trip meters, fuel consumption and a clock while the 12-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 160/60 at the rear.

Accessories include heated grips (£280), hugger (£85), tall screen (£115), 35 litre top box (£395), pannier kit (£325), Akrapovic slip on (£495), carbon effect mini screen (£25), rear seat cowl (£130) and carbon fibre tank pad (£25).

When the engine becomes hot, residual torque of the rocker shaft arm sealing bolts can decrease gradually and the sealing bolt can become loose and fall out. This can result in engine oil leaking and the engine stalling.

  • Build Dates: 29/10/2012 to 15/08/2013 
  • Vehicle Ids: MLHPC44B0D5000711 to MLHPC44B9D5003638 and MLHPC45B1D5000375 to MLHPC46B2D5003560

RM/2015/026, issued 16/09/2015, affected 2,867 bikes

The fuel level gauge arm holder at the fuel pump may swell during hot weather riding conditions and may become weakened. Under the riding condition of deceleration and immediate acceleration, the fuel wave created inside the fuel tank causes higher load on the float arm and it could become detached from its holder. If the fuel float arm becomes detached it could result in, fuel indicator error, abnormal noise from fuel tank, or in worst case engine stall should the arm contact the fuel pump terminals.

  • Build Dates: 17/12/2012 to 27/05/2015
  • Vehicle Ids: MLHPC44B3D5000783 to MLHPC45B3F5202332 and MLHPC44B3D5000783 to MLHPC45B3F5202332
