The 749S was sold alongside the standard 749. Initially they had the same 108bhp motor, but in 2004 the S model gained an upgraded engine. From the start the stocker also got a Boge shock instead of the S’s Showa unit and no titanium nitride coating on its forks. The S also featured an adjustable steering head where the stocker’s was fixed. There is also a Dark, which is a stocker with matt black paint.
