Powerful 1340cc, in-line four-cylinder, fuel injected, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine delivers a broad wave of torque for effortless acceleration.
Forged three-ring aluminum alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength, while PVD-coated rings reduce friction and improve cylinder sealing.
The chrome nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) piston ring coating is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction while improving sealing to the cylinder.
Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) cylinder plating improves heat dissipation, durability, and ring seal.
U-shaped cutouts in the cylinder-bore sides allow air pressure created by descending pistons to escape to adjacent cylinders to reduce internal pumping pressure and mechanical power losses.
Lightweight titanium valves allow the use of light valve springs and high-lift camshafts while maintaining accurate valve control.
Iridium spark plugs produce more complete combustion and last longer than conventional plugs.
Curved radiator with a compact, dense-core design and two ECM-controlled electric fans keep the engine temperature stable.
Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) serves as back-torque-limiting system for smooth downshifts and also contributes to a light clutch pull.
Close ratio, constant-mesh six-speed transmission uses dedicated oil spray to the 4th, 5th and 6th gears to reduce friction, wear, and mechanical noise during high-speed operation.
Suzuki’s advanced fuel injection system with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) induction to improve combustion efficiency and smooth throttle response.
Two 12-hole fine-spray injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency while reducing fuel consumption.
Idle Speed Control (ISC) system improves cold starting and helps maintain a stable engine idle under a variety of conditions.
Suzuki Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) system ignites unburned hydrocarbons (HC) and reduces carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
Large-volume catalyzer in the twin-silencer exhaust permits high flow while further reducing HC, CO, and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets riders select engine power output to match preferences or riding conditions.
