84.7cc, 2-stroke, liquid-cooled, crankcase reed-valve engine with bore and stroke of 48.0mm x 46.8mm. The cylinder features Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) for durability, weight reduction and effective heat transfer to get superior class performance.
Exhaust valves made of aluminium to match well the expansion rate of the cylinder itself improve sealing.
The exhaust valve governor and actuator with good throttle response and tractability.
Digital CDI map offers the suitable engine performance at high rpm.
Smooth shifting 6-speed transmission features a fully worked-out shift mechanism, including strong shift-drum detent spring and needle bearing on the left side of the shift drum.
Knurled shift-pedal tip delivers excellent grip and shift feel.

SHOWA inverted front forks are completely adjustable for rider weight, style and ability. A large-diameter fully-adjustable rear shock absorber produces plush feel with strong bottoming resistance. The front forks offer 275mm (10.8 in) and the rear 277mm (10.9 in) of wheel travels.
2-piston calliper front brake with 220mm (8.7 in) large-diameter disc and rear brake with 200mm (7.9 in) disc provide excellent braking performance.
Light small-diameter front and rear brake hose. Front brake hose is routed behind the fork leg, eliminating the need for a brake hose cover and reducing weight.
Rigid rear brake calliper with reliable braking performance, long pad life and easy maintenance.
Plastic rear brake calliper guard reduces the possibility of deformation and saving weight as well.
A forged aluminium-alloy rear brake pedal gives the rider accurate braking feel.
Footpegs are made of cast chrome-molybdenum steel, instead of stamped steel, making them more durable with better grip.
A long clutch lever makes it easy to accurately locate and work the engagement point during starts and when clutching off at corners.
