From the streamlined gorgeous body with full LED lighting to the nicely sculptured emblems and multi-textured seating surfaces, it not only stands out from the crowd but also gives the rider the pride of ownership.

Comprehensive Lightweight Construction

AK 550’s every component is engineered with the aim to achieve maximum strength with minimum weight. Its lightweight aluminium frame provides the rigidity necessary for spirited riding. The selected lightweight radial tire combined with the hollow designed lowpressure die casting aluminium wheels further reduce the unsprang weight.

Strategic Center Of Gravity Placement

AK 550 has the lowest center of gravity in its class. All body components are engineered to give the vehicle a near 50/50 front to rear weight distribution for perfect balance. This strategic placement of the center of gravity provides the most solid foundation for AK 550 to pursue its ultimate handling capability.

Performance Oriented

Upside-down Fork Front Suspension
AK 550 features upside-down fork front suspension with dual disk Brembo caliper brakes. It keeps the vehicle agile and steady during cornering and delivers stunning stopping power whenever needed.

Horizontal Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

AK 550's three-stage reducer technology separates the weight of the engine from the transmission. It reduces the unsprang weight of the rear suspension and helps keep the wheel tightly attached to the ground at any time.

New Generation Bosch Anti-lock Braking System
AK 550 is equipped with Bosch 9.1 ABS which works with both front and rear braking systems for the shortest braking distance at the highest stability. It reacts extremely fast during emergency braking and is the lightest ABS on the market today.

Powerful 550cc Dual Cylinder Engine
AK 550’s newly designed 550cc water-cooled dual-cylinder DOHC 8V engine is silky smooth and highly responsive. Its 39.3KW output generates powerful acceleration as well as impressive top speed. The power delivery is tuned to suit both spirited adventure as well as pleasant touring. 

Advanced Engine Technique

Cross Plan Crank Shaft System
The two pistons that move in the opposite direction in the cylinders effectively reduce engine vibrations and the pumping loss.

Dry Sump Lubrication System
The removal of the interference of the lubricant from the movement of the balance shaft decreases lubricant temperature and increases engine efficiency.

Automatic Centrifugal Wet Clutch System
The friction loss between mechanical parts is minimized and the power delivery efficiency from engine to wheel is maximized.

Distinctively Fascinating Sound
AK 550 produces fascinating acoustics that is crucial to the delivery of “The Thrills Of Touring”. The sound that roars from the twin cylinder engine through the carefully structured exhaust chamber is full of energy and passion that is simply distinctive and intoxicating.

Low Seat Height

AK 550’s low seat height design provides good ergonomics for riders of all sizes. Moreover, it keeps the whole canter of gravity low when the rider is on board. The lower riding position not only gives the rider more confidence when manoeuvrings, but it also enhances the whole riding experience.

Dual Power Modes
AK 550 has two power modes for the riders to enjoy every journey in different weather conditions. Other than the normal “Full Power” setting, the “Rain Mode” provides the rider with milder power output and softer throttle response that suit wet surfaces with low grip.

Key Less Ignition Control
For easy Start /Stop Function
