What Is It?

It's powered by a Euro 2 compliant air/oil cooled 1,157cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 96.6bhp at 8,500rpm and maximum torque at just 4,000rpm. It's the engine from the GSX-R1100 but bored out and tuned for low down torque.

2001: Re-design with updated frame, more torque at 6,500rpm from the engine, improved cooling, lower 790mm seat, new fork and 3 piston front brakes. The S got a new fairing/headlight design as well. Weight was up to 214kg dry and 220kg dry for the S.
