Debut in U.S. and world markets. 16" front wheel, 18" rear wheel, silver alloy painted
Steel Perimeter (Twin Spar) frame (Similar to GSXR or Honda NS500 frame), Single rear shock w/ 2 sided
Alloy swingarm, 1/2 upper fairing with chin or belly fairing, 360x crank, chain driven cams, 4/2 exhaust system
with a HUGE, overweight collector box in the middle. The forks had TRAC mechanical anti-dive mechanisms.
One cool feature was the fuel petcock which was built into the left side of the tank. Colors were red and white w/red
stripes and blue and white w/blue stripes (U.S. models). Canada/Europe got combos of the colors (i.e. mostly blue with
the small red strip instead of same color blue stripe or red w/ blue stripe). American models were outfitted with
cast rims while European models recieved bolt together "Comstar" wheels that featured large "plates" drilled with
holes, attaching the hubs to the rims. They were gold anodized.
