Savings, both financial and in terms of weight, come from lower-spec suspension, a narrower rear wheel, different exhaust system, single disc front brake system, and a new swingarm. The main, steel trellis frame is the same across the range. Engine cases, barrels and heads are the shared basic castings, but machined differently for the lower capacity model. Both bore and stroke is different, valve size and overlap, too. The latter has been configured to deliver the right amount of torque in third gear to pass new Euro 4 regulations. It means, slightly Volkswagen-esque fudging that sees the noise testing conducted at a lower engine speed in third, rather than maxed-out in second. This translates as allowing the exhaust note to sound like a Ducati when you get the motor spinning. It’s not delivering a Panigale roar, but it’s enough to remind the rider this is not an appliance, it’s a motorcycle. An Italian one at that. Torque peaks at 25 pound-foot and the curve is as flat as an upturned skillet.
