Introduced in 1999, it is powered by a liquid-cooled, 125 cc V-twin engine with one overhead camshaft per cylinder. The camshafts are driven by chains from the left-hand side of the crankshaft. Introduced in 2001, it is powered by the
same liquid-cooled, 125 cc V-twin engine as the VT125C Shadow. However, the frame design is revised to provide greater ground clearance and rear suspension features a box-section swingarm. Our repair manual makes the ideal companion when you’re undertaking maintenance or repairs on your morotrcycle.
