Those winglets create 1.6 times more downforce. You’ll need them to keep you grounded when you find the limits of this all-new engine. The 449cc parallel twin features a 270° crankshaft angle, giving it a torque curve, power output, and sound profile more like that of a V-twin. These engine characteristics also contribute to better rear wheel traction under acceleration. If the engine is one reason to love this bike, just wait until you hear about the Brembo brakes, multi-link rear suspension, and reverse shifting option. Who is this bike made for? Anyone and everyone born in the tucked position.

Features & Highlights
Engine

Here’s a 50-hp wake-up call to every 500-class sport bike. This in-house developed, compact, 449cc, parallel-twin, DOHC engine is built to take the lead. The all-new design is characterized by a 270° crankshaft angle. Precision-engineered double balance shafts effectively counteract the inherent vibrations of a parallel-twin engine, ensuring smooth operation across the rev band. Here are the stats: 50 hp @ 9500 rpm. 28.8 lb-ft torque @ 7600 rpm. Bosch® EFI.

Brakes

Continental ABS continuously adjusts braking pressure to each wheel individually, allowing for precise and effective deceleration while avoiding wheel lock up. Up front a 4-piston Brembo® caliper bites down on a 320mm, single floating disc. The floating design allows the disc to expand and contract, reducing the risk of warping or deformation. The rear brake features a 220mm single disc with a single piston caliper.

Suspension

A sport-oriented front and rear suspension system provides exceptional stability and control. The rear swing arm and rear suspension are connected by a multi-link structure inspired by professional superbikes. This distributes forces and reduces rear-end squat and suspension compression, improving stability and control especially when pushing the limits.

 
 
Reverse Shifting

Reverse shifting is commonly seen in professional motorcycle racing because allows for quicker gear changes and acceleration through tight corners. Moving one bolt on the 450SS shifter changes the position of the linkage, flipping the shift pattern. This setup allows for faster and smoother gear changes: push down for upshifts and pull up for downshifts.

Design

Every curve and contour exude quality and sophistication. Aerodynamic winglets generate 1.6 times more downforce at higher speeds, improving traction and enhancing the bike's overall stability. The signature split front face line cowling design features enlarged grooves, strategically placed to minimize drag. A pair of flowing LED headlights with exclusive lighting animation, create an intense and captivating gaze.
