Features

ERGO-FIT™ Adjustability

  • ERGO-FIT™ EXTENDED REACH (6 FT. 1 IN. AND OVER): Three-position footpegs (accessory shift-linkage rods required when changing footpeg position from standard) and adjustable handlebar levers are positioned to give the rider more room to stretch out. Add to the experience with an Extended Reach seat, which moves hip support back one inch to provide extra room and reach for taller riders.
  • ERGO-FIT™ MID REACH (5 FT. 7 IN. TO 6 FT.): Adjustable handlebar levers and three-position footpegs are positioned in the EGO-FIT Mid Reach setting, while the front of the sculpted seat is tapered for an easy reach to the ground.
  • ERGO-FIT REDUCED REACH (5 FT. 6 IN. AND UNDER): Handlebar levers are positioned inward, while the ERGO-FIT Reduced Reach handlebar decreases reach by one inch. Three-position footpegs (accessory shift-linkage rods required when changing footpeg position from standard) have also been adjusted one inch closer to your body for maximum comfort and confidence. Plus, you can cruise comfortably on a seat that moves you two inches forward on the tapered portion.

Performance

  • Sportbike-derived chassis and suspension provides light and responsive handling for easy maneuvering and a sporty feel
  • 7-way adjustable rear spring preload allows suspension to be set softer for added cruising comfort or stiffer for a sportier feel
  • Sportbike-influenced wheels and tires contribute to the light-handling feel and provide confident traction

Power

  • Smooth, Ninja-derived, 649 cc parallel-twin engine
  • Smooth power delivery with ample low-to-mid range torque and strong top end power
  • Lightweight and responsive for easy handling and exceptional performance

Warranty

  • 12 Month Limited Warranty
