Engine Features
  • 686cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 4-valve, fuel injected single produces serious torque & horsepower: excellent reputation for both durability & reliability.
  • Electric starting: includes auto decompression system for fast, easy starts; can be re-started in any gear
  • SOHC, 4-valve cylinder head design: 2-intake (38 mm) & 2-exhaust (32 mm) valves provide maximum breathing efficiency; screw & tappet valve actuation for easier maintenance
  • Ceramic composite plated cylinder uses "liner less" bores: ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum block, eliminating the liner & reducing weight; excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery; ceramic coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power
  • Short skirt forged aluminum piston: lightweight design means faster throttle response; reduced reciprocating mass means less mechanical vibration
  • Dual gear driven balancer shafts: reduces engine vibration for improved rider comfort & stamina
  • 44 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system with TPS & ISC: TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) is used to more precisely calculate the fuel injection quantity for optimum power & excellent throttle response at all rpms; ISC (Idle Speed Control) helps ensure a steady idle even during warm up; fuel injection benefits include; choke-free starting, steady idle during warm, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • "No tools required" air box with washable dual stage foam air filter: washable foam filter features tool-free access for fast servicing; dual stage design provides maximum filtering; no tools required air box drain
  • Compact 5-speed transmission with reverse & heavy duty manual clutch: optimized gear ratios match engine output for maximum performance; heavy duty clutch basket & plates are designed to handle the Raptor's massive torque
  • Dry sump lubrication system: design helps reduce oil-starvation at high g-loads; no deep oil pan means engine is lower in the chassis for optimum handling & reduced centre of gravity; replaceable element style oil filter
  • High capacity cooling system with electric cooling fan: maintains consistent engine temperatures for optimum performance; rad is positioned higher in the frame for additional protection
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI): produces a strong spark for fast starts; precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms; marine grade electrical connectors
  • Performance tuned exhaust system with cleanable spark arrestor: tuned system for optimum power delivery at all rpms; spark arrestor prevents stray sparks from exiting the exhaust
  • Heavy duty O ring chain final drive: easy to adjust; heavy duty O-ring chain offers excellent strength & durability
  • Air Injection System (AIS) injects fresh air into exhaust port to fully burn any unburnt fuel, reducing exhaust emissions.
Chassis Features
  • Lightweight, combination cast aluminum & steel frame with "tuned" rigidity balance: unit width is 1,240 mm or 48.8" wide, combining with a low seat height of 810 mm (31.9") for flat, stable handling; compact design provides nimble, responsive handling; engine is mounted low in the frame to reduce the centre of gravity & centralize mass for exceptional handling; rigidity balance maximizes handling & suspension performance. Frame is optimized to provide a balance of strength, rigidity & tuned flex.
  • Rugged composite under engine skid frame protection: lightweight design reduces weight; skid plate allows unit to slide more easily over obstacles
  • Lightweight aluminum swingarm: reduces weight; excellent rear wheel traction & control
  • Adjustable, independent double wishbone front suspension: adjustable, KYB long stroke, high pressure nitrogen charged shocks with dual rate springs: front shock adjustments include; 5 - way spring preload; 230 mm (9.1") of front wheel travel; grease fittings on selected front suspension components; allows tailoring of suspension to suit rider weight, riding style & track conditions
  • Adjustable, single shock, link-type rear suspension: adjustable, KYB long stroke, high pressure nitrogen charged piggyback shock with dual rate springs; rear shock adjustments include; threaded spring preload; 256 mm (10.1") of rear wheel travel; grease fittings on selected rear suspension components
  • Dual 161 mm front disc brakes squeezed by twin piston calipers: pads feature wear indicator grooves for visual pad wear inspection; excellent braking power, feeling & control
  • Single 200 mm wave-style rear disc squeezed by twin piston caliper: wave design reduces weight & improves cooling (more surface area for better cooling); pads feature wear indicator grooves for visual pad wear inspection
  • Handlebar mounted parking brake.
  • Rugged, lightweight aluminum rims fitted with high performance MAXXIS tires: rims feature rolled edges for additional strength & durability; tire design enhances steering precision, control & traction; optimized rim offsets enhance handling & stability
  • 11 litre fuel tank: 2.9 litre reserve capacity (low fuel light illuminates)
  • Compact LED warning indicators: LED warning indicators; neutral & reverse gear position, low fuel, coolant temp, & engine trouble
  • Aggressive, race oriented bodywork & special flat seat design: race designed bodywork provides freedom of movement & good forward visibility; bodywork panels can be quickly removed for easier servicing & washing
  • Dual "cat eye" headlights & taillight with brake light: dual "cat eye" 30 / 30 watt Krypton bulb headlights; single brilliant LED taillight with brake light
  • Wide 45mm (1.8") foot pegs with heel guards provide excellent grip.
  • Low maintenance, sealed battery (battery should be charged during extended storage): sealed design means no leaks & never having to add distilled water
