There are also KX-inspired bodywork, fork protectors and two-piece radiator shroud. Its instrument console is fully-digital.
Suspension duties are carried out by 43 mm inverted cartridge-style fork at front while its rear gets a gas-charged Uni-Trak monoshock. A 250 mm front and 240 mm rear discs respectively provide stopping power to the motorcycle’s 21 inch front and 18 inch rear wheels. Its dual high-capacity Denso radiators are lighter in weight and is claimed to offer better cooling efficiency
