The new 400 cc High Performance Engine is more than a simple increase in cubic centimetres. Maximum power is 17% greater than the previous 350 cc version, while maximum torque increases by 30% for an engine that delivers over 35 horsepower and is Euro 5 compliant, giving the Beverly 400 the best power to weight ratio in the category.
The position of the fuel tank in the centre of the footwell has long been a particular feature of the Beverly. Not only does it better centralise mass for a more agile riding experience, it also means you can refuel without dismounting. Last but not least, it makes for a spacious underseat compartment that is equipped with a courtesy light and can hold two open face helmets. There’s more storage in the form of a luggage rack with integrated passenger handles, a handy retractable bag hook and a glovebox with USB port in the rear of the shield for charging your phone on the go.
The 400 HPE also sports a special fairing in a nod to its out-of-town touring credentials and spirit.
Smart technology transforms the bike-rider interaction, simplifying life with features such as Bike Finder, a handy function when you are trying to pick out your bike in a crowded parking area. Simply press the remote and the horn and lights will be activated.
The Beverly has also done away with a traditional key, using a keyless system that enables you to start up the engine, open the seat / fuel cap and position the steering lock, all by simply pressing the fob in your pocket.
The new “navigation bridge” houses a digital 5.5” LCD instrument panel in the centre, with ergonomically designed commands placed for maximum comfort on each side of the handlebar.
All lights and indicators used LED technology.
