It was already exclusive, now it has become more streamlined and efficient.

The single cylinder, four valve, twin cam titanium valve engine received minor changes to the power curve. For better power delivery the ECU map has been improved to get the most out of the light steel Akrapovic exhaust, developed in collaboration with a prestigious Slovenian manufacturer.
