Published May 19, 2010 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Event: JSAE Spring Conference
Under the concept of the harmonization with the exterior design of the motorcycle, the throttle body with the exterior color of the "deep black" was developed, in addition to maintaining the traditional beauty of the functional structure. The "deep black" coating of the die-casting throttle body made of the aluminum alloy ADC12 was achieved by the process based on the acid anodizing. (This process was used because of the quality control, minor change of the plant, and the popular technique).
