Equipped with the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), the clutch acts as a slipper clutch system when changing down rapidly, while always providing light use of the lever. SCAS is an advanced clutch system supporting both sporty riding and less fatigue on long rides.
ADVANCED TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
This system enables the rider to control the throttle with more confidence in difficult riding situations such as stone paved roads, two-up riding or when with a heavy load to minimise the stress and/or fatigue on long distance rides. The traction control system² continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position, crank position, and gear position with various sensors, and controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery. The traction control system can be switched to either of two modes, or off. Modes 1 and 2 differ in the timing and levels of intervention. Mode 1 has a lower level of intervention applied at a later timing allowing a certain degree of rear wheel spin, not to interrupt a sporty ride. Mode 2 has a higher level of intervention applied at an instant, controlling and preventing the slightest amount of spin, more actively supporting the rider in situations such as in the rain or on slippery road surfaces.
The easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster provides rich information to the rider. It incorporates a big analogue tachometer and large digital readouts for the gear position and speedometer. The digital section below displays the odometer, twin-trip meter, clock, fuel level, coolant temperature, ambient temperature⁴, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes.
