There's no oil cooler, only the two-sided water radiator (with single fan on the right side). According to the design brief, the ratio went from 22/78 (oil/air cooling) to 35/65 (water/air cooling). Whether there is an internal oil/water heat exchanger like what is found on the new Suzuki VStrom 650 is TBD....unless someone here already knows the answer to that?
