Cylinder "cutaways" allow air "trapped" under the piston to enter a side chamber (or cutaway).

  • reduces horsepower-robbing "pumping losses"

Crankcase also utilizes special "cutaways"

  • reduces horsepower-robbing "pumping losses"
  • crankcase cutaways match cylinder cutaways for maximum efficiency

Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI).

  • produces a strong spark for fast starts
  • provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms

High performance direct ignition coil (ignition coil is built into the spark plug cap).

  • reduces weight & complexity

Lightweight, compact "rare-earth-type" ACM (alternating current magneto).

  • reduced weight
  • 14V & 350W output

Upswept exhaust system

  • stainless steel header pipe & a compact 3-stage expansion type muffler
  • honeycomb catalyzer reduces exhaust emissions
  • system maximizes engine power & allows hassle-free replacement of the oil filter element
  • cleanable screen-type spark arrestor
  • heat shields protect rider & passenger

Exhaust system also features Yamaha's EXUP System (Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve).
