The goals for this new engine included more power, better high-rpm response, improved fuel economy and lower emissions. It’s still a 90-degree transverse (longitudinal crank) V-twin, displacing the same 744cc, but it’s 70-plus percent revised with 200 new or redesigned components. Twin throttle bodies have been replaced by a single, centrally located 38mm Magneti Marelli unit, said to deliver a more consistent mixture. Larger intake ports and a higher, 10.2:1 compression ratio contribute to a claimed 12 percent power increase, to 51 bhp at 6200 rpm. The transmission has also been upgraded with a new “pre-selector” mechanism for smoother, quieter shifts.
