Lightweight 49 cc four-stroke OHC liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine provides ample power for in-town riding. Efficient four-stroke engine consumes substantially less fuel and produces significantly lower exhaust emissions than a comparable two-stroke engine.
Fuel-sipping constant-velocity (CV) carburetor with automatic choke.
Maintenance-free solid-state ignition system.
Simple push-button electric starter.
Starter system utilizes the engine's brushless alternator (ACG) for starting, eliminating the need for a separate starter motor. This simple design reduces maintenance and lowers overall weight for even better fuel economy.
