This was the only Izh not taking after DKW genealogy engines, but from supposedly izh-61K, sports engines developed at the begin. of 1960-s. In addition, it was not unificated in other parts with "ordinary" izhs, innovations comprized: separate lub system(oil pump), engine to clutch assy transmission through toohgears, powerful 3-phase generator, 12v onboard el. system, all mounted on a thermo-treated high-class alloy steel frmae, , rod-less fork, rear shock absorbers with preload adjustments, Main tech. traits also included imported japanese equipment: carb(Mikuni), headlight(stanley), turnlights(Denso as well as gen. on some versions), 340cc engine (76x75mm) had 32 hp with max. speed 140kmh - a dream for most of USSR bikes at the time.
