Air cooled, inline, transverse,1047 cc, six cyl. six carbs,
4 (yes,4) overhead cams,24 valves,5 speed,104 hp @ the crank (about 85 to the ground), with 52 ft/lbs of torque and weighs 600 lbs. It was the fastest production motorcycle(maybe ANY vehicle)
on the planet in 1979 by 0.2 seconds.11.55 sec.@ 117.49 mph. in the 1/4 mile. Old school by todays standards,but
King of the hill and a technological marvel back in it's day.



6 into one exhaust,custom paint on sidecovers,they are solid black from the factory.
