The characterized ‘Rising Air Tail’ along with the sharp, sporty mirrors and fully digital meter comes along with ‘roller rocker arm’ that reduces horsepower loss and ‘easy-to-use power’ settings in extremely low-speed ranges.

Presence of 170 mm diameter front disc brake and alloy wheels reduces the inertial moment of the steering assembly and thus, contributes to light, agile handling characteristics. Additionally, it also offers 1) large under seat storage room (21 litres capacity) with front pocket enough to fit a 500 ml bottle 2) key secure grip system 3) Edgy and high rising tail light, two-level raised seat provides great comfort to the rider while reducing fatigue.
