Air bottle ??

Hi
Just having a looksee around the bike and noticed underneath the airbox there is a plastic reservoir bottle. I gather this is something to do with the air injection. Can anybody give me a explanation as what it does, i find it strange to have a reservoir of air !!!! Cheers

Be sure to check and drain it periodically. Like every oil change.
There's a hose with a plug and clamp on the left side near the side stand.
Loosen the clamp, pull the plug, and let drain into the old oil.
