One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to supply optimum volumetric or filling efficiency for optimum power output. More fuel / air mixture entering the combustion chamber means increased power output. Two smaller intake valves allow more ventilation than the usual single large valve. Two smaller valves (lighter) also permit higher rpms before valve float.

Pent roof type combustion with optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre from the combustion chamber (and also the located long reach spark plug) for faster, more complete combustion and therefore improved power and reduced emissions.

Cylinder heads feature buff polished fins for any quality appearance, as the cylinder head covers are chromed.

The oxygen sensor is situated prior to the mufflers, therefore the utilization of aftermarket slip-on mufflers won't affect this technique.

4-hole, 2-directional spray, Denso fuel injectors bring excellent fuel atomization and much more complete combustion chamber filling. There's one injector per cylinder.

Fuel injection benefits include improved gas mileage; choke-less operation, reduced emissions, and smoother drivability. The XVS950 continues to be tuned use a very "linear" throttle response for simple riding.

Powerful 32 bit ECU controls the ignition and fuel injection process

Multi-plate "outer pull type'" wet clutch can be used. Lever pull is light and simple.

5-speed transmission features optimized gear ratios for excellent city and highway drivability. Transmission gears use "straight cut dogs" for smooth, positive shifting. 5th gear delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speed

Transistorized coil ignition (T.C.I.) supplies a hot spark without a doubt starts and it is maintenance-free.

Clean, quiet belt drive product is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt is comparable to the XVS1300 and features "Aramid" cords for excellent strength and reduced stretching.

Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful CO and HC exhaust emissions.

One piece classic heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and improves the overall cruising experience.

Numerous chromed engine parts reinforce this motorcycle's quality image.
