Speaking of riding experience, the seat height of 785 mm makes it accessible to a wide range of riders of varying heights. The soft-touch switchgear also makes changing gears effortless. The rear footpegs and grab rail also give comfort and safety to pillion riders.

Just below the rear grab rail, a set of sleek tail lamps and indicator lights gets fitted. The exhaust pipe is slightly upswept and shielded with a superior stainless-steel muffler that beautifully complements the coloured shock absorbers. The all-black alloy wheels add style to the bike.
