The engine, Suzuki says, is designed to give its best performance in the low- to mid-ranges, producing 23.4Nm of torque at 6500rpm and peak power of 18kW at 8000rpm.

The engine’s intake valves are designed to optimise airflow into the combustion chamber, improving performance and reducing emissions, while a new two-into-one exhaust enhances mid-range performance.
