Industry-first fully integrated rider airbag on a motorcycle.
The airbag module contains the airbag and inflator and is
positioned in front of the rider.
The ECU positioned to the right of the module detects changes in
acceleration based on information it receives from the two crash
sensors (one positioned on each of the fork legs) to determine
whether to inflate the airbag in certain frontal impacts.
Powerful, fuel-injected 1,832cc six-cylinder engine produces

Parallel two-valve cylinder-head design utilizes direct
shim-under-bucket valve actuation, which allows the first
valve-clearance inspection service to be at 32,000 miles.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI).
Two 40mm diameter throttle bodies deliver air to six specially
designed Keihin 50 psi high-pressure programmed fuel injectors.
Fuel is delivered through four nozzle holes in each injector,
producing an atomized fuel mixture that is highly combustible
for optimum efficiency and power.
The ECU provides two digital 3-D fuel-injection maps for each
cylinder, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings
for superb rideability. Unique knock-control sensors monitor for
knock to improve performance.
ECU closed-loop emissions system utilizes two oxygen sensors to
constantly deliver a precise air/fuel mixture, while two exhaust
catalyzers further reduce emissions of carbon monoxide,
hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides.
Two side-mounted radiators enhance cooling efficiency and use
low-air-pressure areas created by side cowls to draw cooling air
through the radiators and beyond the rider at highway speeds.
