2002 model
A new 4-in-2-in-1 exhaust system, with single instead of dual mufflers, and new carburettors, reduce weight by 6 kg.
Other weight reduction details are for example a lighter rear wheel, lighter swingarm assembly, a hollow rear axle and a more compact rear brake caliper.
An air induction system is added to comply with EU-1 emission regulations.
Fuel tank, seat and sidecovers are redesigned to give the bike a slimmer mid section and offer a narrower knee grip. The riding position is moved slightly forward for better handling.
Suspension settings are refined and Öhlins rear suspension now comes as standard. Also the 'special' colours (with graphics) are standard now. Colours are black/silver, silver/white/black and blue/white/black. Some of the colours now come in combination with a silver engine (instead of black).
