The 853 cc, parallel-twin engine gets a 90-degree offset crankshaft  and a 270-degree firing interval which provides more torque lower in the rev range. Additionally, dual counterbalancers make the engine smoother and more refined in operation. The engine will be mated to a six-speed transmission with a slipper clutch. Both bikes are built on a monocoque steel bridge frame and the engine acts as a stressed member, helping further reduce weight.
