The liquid-cooled 675 cc single-cylinder engine has tons of torque and plenty of power. Fuel injection means it starts right up, even on cold days or at high altitude. And the engine is rubber mounted for reduced vibration.
The automotive-style automatic transmission uses a heavy-duty torque converter with three hydraulic clutches. It’s tough, with no belts to worry about, and also smart — a two-stage shift map is engineered to sense when you’re aggressive or light with the throttle, and optimizes power delivery accordingly.
Paddle shifters on the steering wheel allow you to override the transmission’s shift points on the fly, or switch to manual mode (MT) and use the paddles to shift manually. Fully automatic, automatic with manual override, or fully manual — you get to choose.
Tiptoeing through tricky terrain? Need to make a tight turn? A short wheelbase and a tight turning radius makes it easy to manoeuvre out of almost any situation.
