  • Fuel consumption rating of approximately 1.8 L/100 km or 158 mpg (Imperial).Your actual consumption may vary.
  • Fast, dependable electric starting.
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI).
    • produces a strong spark for fast starts
    • provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • Fan-assisted, liquid-cooling.
    • maintains consistent engine temperatures even in stop and go traffic
    • liquid-cooling allows for a higher state of tune / performance
    • reduces mechanical engine noise
  • 3-valve cylinder head.
    • utilizes two intake valves and one exhaust valve
    • excellent breathing efficiency and excellent fuel economy
  • Roller rocker arm valve actuation.
    • specially designed roller rocker arms reduce friction for increased power
    • reduce mechanical engine noise for a quiet, enjoyable ride
  • Intake and exhaust valves feature a special “carbon cutter” valve stem design.
    • automatically removes carbon build up from the valve stems
    • maintains maximum engine efficiency and power, even during extended slow speed use
    • (carbon build up on valve stems can lead to sticky valves and poor performance)
  • Lightweight, aluminum cylinder features ceramic composite plating on the cylinder bore.
    • insures uniform heat dissipation
    • reduces internal friction and weight
  • Lightweight crankshaft with carburized connecting rod and lightweight forged aluminum piston.
    • optimizes engine performance and provides fast throttle response
    • excellent durability (carburization is a heat treating process that increases the strength of steel)
    • reduces mechanical vibration
  • 19 mm, “closed loop” throttle body fuel injection system.
    • excellent fuel economy and good throttle response
    • “closed loop system” uses an oxygen sensor to “sniff” spent exhaust and automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions
    • fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy and reduced emissions
  • BWs 50 uses regular 87 octane gasoline.
  • Easy access, paper-type air filter is used. Air box design reduces intake noise.

    • automatically removes any particles found in the oil
    • never requires cleaning or maintenance
  • Fully automatic CVT transmission (CVT = constantly variable transmission).
    • “twist-the-throttle-and-go” operation
    • no clutch lever or gear shifting involved – the transmission is fully automatic.
  • Environmentally responsible exhaust system produces a very quiet exhaust note.
    • muffler contains dual honeycomb-style catalytic converters to reduce emissions
  • Air induction System (AIS) further reduces harmful exhaust emissions.
    • AIS system injects fresh air into the exhaust to ensure complete fuel combustion
    • also helps to maximize the function of the catalytic converters


  • Rugged “underbone-style” steel frame.
    • makes getting on and off the BWs easy
  • Wheelbase, centre of gravity, weight distribution and tire design, have all been engineered to provide light, agile handling and great manoeuvrability.
