If it's not broken, don't fix it. But make it meaner, by all means! Boasting 180 hp and 140 Nm, the 1301 cm³ LC8 V-twin has undergone an almost imperceptible but impactful development. Optimized to be lighter while retaining its vigorous character, this powerplant represents the gold standard of V-twin evolution. And, with the engine and linkage supports adding to the overall structure of the whole package, it is literally the part that holds the BEAST together.
