We made the Aim of Development to be the creation of the next generation of a basic motorcycle that would deliver joy to our customers across the world, be they in developed or emerging countries, dressing the common platform of its steel diamond frame and 17-inch radial tyres in an individual design that was in keeping with modern trends. The frame would deliver the size and direct handling characteristics needed to experience the original fun of the motorcycle, while the newly developed, easy to control parallel-twin 500cc engine would deliver torque at low and medium speeds at the same time as delivering an advanced environmental performance. In response to the needs of our customers and the demands of the times, we proposed the creation of 3 distinct versions that would become the benchmark for future FUN models.
