The chassis[edit]

A photo presentation.

The frame, while maintaining continuity in particular as regards the choice of systems suspensive (modified only in the position of attacks) undergoes a radical change in the provision and choice of the section of the tubes that form the structure. The highest mark on the land of tyres and the changed composition of the compound and carcass demanded a greater torsional rigidity in order to draw the full benefit. It was thus achieved a trellis tube section mixed square, round and rectangular. It also changed the position of the driver who assumes a more lying.

The body[edit]

A recent photo in Japan

The body is composed of a front with air-intake low, square and very large, with a large vent hot air in front for the passenger as in 1000 V changed; however, is for the first time, realized in composite: fiberglass and epoxy resin, set through rapid hooks that allow a quick replacement.
