For '02, Honda chose to tweak the engine a bit, put the entire bike on a part-by-part diet and significantly revise the suspension, chassis and swingarm. Down in the engine room, the throttle bodies have been supersized from 54mm to 62mm, and the two injectors feeding each combustion chamber now sport 12 laser-drilled jets, rather than the four little garden hoses of the previous bike, for a finer spray. The injection and ignition mapping were tweaked, also, resulting in throttle response that's as smooth and creamy as a nougat filling. (Don't tell Nicky; he's got a sweet tooth.) The new motor feels same-same in terms of power output; Honda claims a two-horsepower increase for 128 hp at the crank--but the low-rev snatchiness is nowhere to be found.
