The bike features a classic peanut-style fuel tank, which is available in several colors. The drag-style handle bars allow for a relaxed, but aggressive seating posture. While the bike is typically painted flat black, a gold metal flake paint option is also available.

The evolution engine provides good reliable power. It uses an air-cooled fuel injected system. Since their introduction in the mid-1980s the evolution engines have proven to be reliable, even in the worst of situations.
