A bonded clutch and modified gear ratios have been introduced to make gear changing smoother and allow the rider to take full advantage of the flexibility of the famous single cylinder engine.
Fully enclosed rear chain case is available as an extra; straight handlebars are optional. Colours: Forest Green or Black and Silver.
Identical in specification to the model ES.2 except for a smaller engine capacity, this machine is equally famous for its reliability and capacity for hard work.

The lively single cylinder engine, "Featherbed" frame and world famous "Roadholder" front forks are features which contribute to the success of this splendid machine.
