The 996 cc liquid-cooled 90-degree V-twin sports the same bore and stroke of 98mm x 66mm, but that's about it. The DOHC four-valve cylinder heads feature smaller 36mm intake valves, single instead of dual valve springs, slightly reshaped intake ports for better velocity at lower rpm, and retimed intake cams for more overlap.
