The new engine, which is with a stylishly curved equipped with two high-efficiency fans, also uses secondary air system, maintaining fuel mapping for smoother engine operation, without emissions.

The Testastretta 11° engine effectively the fire-breathing 1198 Superbike plant and re-engineered it with user-friendliness. Engineers achieved to great effect by reducing the of valve over-lap from 41° – typical in performance engines operate constantly at high RPM – to 11°, which reduced horse-power slightly, but enhanced and overall smoothness.

The Monster features an oil bath clutch ‘slipper’ function and super-light at the lever. Its design uses a self-servo mechanism that the plates together when drive from the engine, the reduction of the clutch spring This results in a much clutch lever at the handlebar, in stop-start traffic or long

When the drive force is (over-run), the same mechanism the pressure on the clutch plates, them to provide a race-like action, which reduces the effect of the rear-end under down-shifting and provides a much feeling when closing the or down-shifting under normal conditions.
