Aesthetically, it’s an aggressive streetfighter with intense design language. The motorcycle managed to get silhouette and styling of patent images in its market-ready guise. Other than this, a petite and chiselled LED headlamp along with components such as the beefy forks and large tank extensions are add-ons to its appearance.

The power transmission is under the supervision of a 6-speed transmission.
The suspension equipment comprises of a USD forks up front and a preload adjustable monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, the braking setup gets complete with the association of disc brakes on both wheels which further get rider’s aids of dual-channel ABS as standard.
