It features a lichtweight steel tubular spaceframe chassis, an the 170 hp, 1299 cc Suzuki Hayabusa 4 cylinder ingine, matit tae a 6-speed sequential gearbox. Performance upgrades ar available. Houever, it lacks a windshield, side doors, roof, an is virtually devoid o interior luxury. As a result o this simplicity, the caur anerlie weighs atween 410-440 kilograms, dependin on configuration. Bi achievin an extremely hie pouer tae weight ratio, it haes been intendit primarily as a caur tae be uised on the race track. Houever, it is still legal for road uise ( at least in the UK).
