It has a powerfull 4 stroke, 1,441 cc engine. One of the inherent benefits of an In-Line Four engine configuration is its perfect primary balance. Complementing the perfect primary balance, dual secondary balancers further reduce unwanted engine vibration, ensuring a supremely smooth engine.

The fuel tank and seat have been redesigned to let shorter riders reach the ground more easily and the pronounced fin design of the side fairings permits heat to escape more quickly than it did with the older models. Quadruple projector beams light up the road ahead while the LED taillight and integrated turn signals are housed in a more aggressively styled tailpiece. The multi-function instrument display now includes external air temperature and a much more precise remaining-range function while the switches and control buttons are all clearly visible and easily usable. Fit and finish is as befits a flagship model from Kawasaki superb.
