1997 | Tempter

Chic, lightweight, and compact next-generation mono-cylinder 400 cm³ bike


The Tempter is a next-generation 1-cylinder on-road bike that was developed with a particular focus on restrained styling and refinement. A slim, lightweight, and compact chassis typical of a mono-cylinder bike with a reassuringly robust silhouette is paired with a 400 cm³ air-cooled SOHC 1-cylinder engine. The engine delivers a powerful combination of clear emotional beats, sensations of torque, and rideability, paired with simple and appealing features such as front and rear spoked wheels with lightweight and highly rigid H-shaped aluminum rims and a double-leading-shoe front drum brake that help to deliver agile handling.
