In addition to delivering double the output of the 800 SX-R and a higher top speed, the easier-to-manage broad spread of power from the new 4-stroke powerplant facilitates control. DOHC, 16-valve, fuelinjected, 4-stroke In-Line Four engine displaces 1,498 cm3 and has a bore/stroke ratio of 83.0 x 69.2 mm.
Superb cornering performance
Development of the new hull incorporated racing feedback. Its agile handling, complemented by great stability and increased power, allows
higher cornering speed. Corner grip of the wellbalanced machine exceeds that of the 800 SX-R.
