The bike has retained design bits like a rounded fuel tank with a Monza cap, bar-end mirrors, and a bench seat from its predecessor. Furthermore, it will be seen riding on the new 12-spoke cast wheels wrapped in Metzeler Racetec RR tyres.
Mechanically, The bike draws its power from a BS6 compliant 1200cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
