The cylinder block is canted toward the front wheel by 55 degrees to reduce the entire motorcycle’s centre of gravity, permitting innovating packaging solutions.[clarification needed] The optional electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) system allows the rider to electronically adjust for different road conditions and varying loads for an individualized riding style. A three-way catalytic converter in the exhaust is present to meet low emissions. As an option, the bike is available with ABS brakes.
