It comes with under-seat storage capacity of 19 litres and gets telescopic forks at front and monoshock at the rear. While the front tyre is of size 90/100-10, the rear tyre measures 90/90-10.
The engine is tuned to churn out 7.88 bhp power at 7,500 rpm and 8 Nm torque at 5,500 rpm and comes mated to a V-Matic CVT transmission. The scooter promises a fuel efficiency of 62 kmpl and can accelerate from 0-60 km/h in 11.1 seconds.
