The 650 cc speedster is run by a four stroke engine which has two cylinders parallel to each other which have 8 valves totally for inlet and outlet whose motion is timed by dual over head camshaft. The engine is cooled by water and it uses a radiator that has good cooling efficiency. The engine is known for its acceleration and performance in low and mid range speeds. It gives a maximum torque of 66 Nm at 7000 rpm. The maximum power output by the engine is attained at 8500 rpm and it is 72 bhp.

The entire design of the engine system is such that it is compact as compared to the output delivered by it.
