The flat and wide single seat offers utmost comfort to the rider and pillion while riding. The rear gets mono-shock suspension and the chain case on this motorcycle gets a new design. It gets bigger sprocket at the rear for better torque and blacked out silencer is also seen. There is a metal grab handle for the pillion at the rear and the tail lamp is actually a sleek looking LED light bar right behind the seat. The turn indicators are placed on the rear fenders.
