What Is It?

Compared to the 2012-2013 model the engine has received extensive work on the cylinder head, improving inlet and exhaust gas flow and combustion efficiency. The result is a small jump in peak power and improved mid-range torque. The riding position has also been refined, with revised handlebar and footpeg position.
Honda say the engine is "Blueprinted". That means in the factory each batch of pistons and rods are weighed, then those that most closely match the middle tolerance and each other are used, giving the engine more balance at higher RPMs. The 12-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.
Options include Combined ABS (+11 kg, £600), pillion seat cowl, rear hugger, 27 mm taller screen, comfort seat and a variety of Carbon Fibre bits.
