The new 999 cc, inline-four engine makes slightly higher power in comparison to the previous model. It delivers 141 PS and 104 Nm of peak torque. The engine redlines at 12,000. The company claims that it has reprogrammed the fuel-injection system of the motorcycle and that's why despite the new emission compliance the updated engine hasn't sacrificed its performance output.
