The crankcase uses a unit-type design, with a semi-dry-sump oil system which mitigates mechanical pumping losses. The engine is both oil- and water-cooled. An overdrive-equipped six-speed constant-mesh transmission and manual clutch transfer power back to the rear wheel.

Fuel is sprayed into the cylinders electronically, via 52mm dual-bore throttle bodies. The engine uses ride-by-wire technology which facilitates adjustable throttle mapping (via ride mode selection). This aids rideability based on rider skill, preference, or road conditions.

Wonder how this will compare with the 2018-2019 ride-by-wire throttle control?

If you want speed get a Kawasaki ZX 14

The ZZR1400 is capable of accelerating from 0–60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph (299 km/h) as a result of an agreement between the major Japanese and European motorcycle manufacturers.
Top speed: 186 mph (299 km/h)

1.13 HP per cubic inch is not a lot to brag about. The 01-17 GL1800 is close @ 1.04 even de-tuned as it is.

Obviously Suzuki and Honda do not subscribe to that Agreement because both are producing bikes that will do over 200 off the showroom floor and have been for several years.
