The 648 cc 4-stroke parallel-twin engine produces 47 hp @ 7100 rpm and 52 Nm of torque @ 4000 rpm. The engine has 4-valves per cylinder, SOHC configuration and uses fuel injection system. There is a 270° single-piece forged crankshaft and a balancer shaft for reduced vibrations. The engine is paired to a 6-speed transmission.
Visually, the new 650 engine has been inspired by the old, 1948 500 Twin engine.
