The front features a large headlamp cluster with LED position lights and an attractive chrome chest that leaves a fantastic impression on viewers’ mind. There is a sophisticated digital analogue meter which displays components like analogue speedometer, digital trip meter, odometer and fuel gauge. The display is lit by adequate lighting which makes it easy to read for the rider. The cuts and cosmetic lines across its side add sparkle to its overall appeal. The seating position is optimal for a rider ensuring a comfortable commute. At the rear end, it has grab rails which are stronger than earlier and offer great support to the pillion. Giving a satisfying end to the scooter is the sharp tail which features peculiarly designed tail light with integrated turn indicators.
