colour matched front bumper (matte dark grey with orange model only)

Rubber mounted, compact, 847 cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve (4-valves / cyl), inline twin cylinder engine with Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) provides lots of torque across the rev range with linear throttle response.
compact engine design allows it to be placed in the centre of the chassis allowing a shorter wheelbase for excellent off road capabilities
engine is designed to provide smooth, quiet operation for maximum enjoyment
4-point rubber engine mounts reduce vibration
4-valve, downdraft style combustion chamber with 10.5:1 compression ratio.
4-valve design maximizes flow into & out of combustion chamber
31.5 mm intake & 26.5 mm exhaust valves
stainless steel valves feature an Isonite surface treatment & carburized tips for excellent durability & wear resistance
Lightweight hollow camshafts.
cam profiles are designed to accentuate torque & power throughout the rev range
automatic cam chain tensioner reduces both mechanical engine noise & maintenance
“Cross Plane Concept” 270 degree crankshaft.
design reduces inertia torque while emphasizing linear torque
design has been optimized to achieve strong torque over a broad rpm range
CP Concept offers excellent “drive-ability” and linear throttle response
Lightweight gear driven balancer shaft.
