It's powered by a liquid cooled four stroke 999cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 143.5bhp at 10,000rpm and maximum torque at 9,500rpm. It's actually the engine from the 2005-2008 GSX-R re-tuned for the street, rather than latest generation gixxer, because the long stroke design is better suited to low down torque. RRP is £10,000.

The lower radiator hose is fitted in close proximity, and may come into contact with an exhaust pipe clamp. It is possible for the hose to wear through and leak coolant. If not noted and rectified it is possible for the engine to be damaged.
