7. Reduced friction

To reduce friction, not only have we applied a resin coating to the pistons in this engine, but also, for the first time in a motorcycle, we have used a lightweight aluminum material for the roller rocker arm. Friction has been further reduced to the limit by integrating functions such as running the oil pump using the balancer shaft and the water pump using the camshaft, which reduced the overall number of shafts required.
