So do the specs. Although the 72-degree V-twin shares some distant DNA with the Rotax-built Helicon engine, it's been extensively redesigned by EBR in East Troy, Wisconsin, and has an entirely new manufacturing base, using vendors from all over the world. Where the original 1,125cc Helicon made a claimed 146 hp, the new one is said to put down 185, with a prodigious amount of torque: a claimed 101.6 pound-feet at 8,200 rpm. Considering the whole motorcycle weighs just 419 pounds (fully wet but for fuel), that's an impressive power-to-weight ratio. Lightweight components throughout, including a lithium-ion battery, really pay dividends.
