Overall, the design carries an aggressive stance, unlike the regular version that looks subtle and smart. As per sources, the bike shall be available in new interesting shades and graphics. The front wheel gets telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers, whereas the rear gets a swing arm with 5 step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber for a comfortable ride.
