Some of the key feature updates on the motorcycle include its new optional radar-powered adaptive cruise control and a new 10.25-inch TFT screen with the widest full-colour display on a production bike. Its 1,254 cc boxer engine features BMW ShiftCam technology. It has been claimed to deliver a more powerful response across the rev range. Also, it contributes to a better fuel economy, and lower emissions from the engine. The powertrain delivers a maximum output of 132 PS at 7,750 rpm and 143 Nm of peak torque at 6,250 rpm.

The bike now features a new Eco engine mode as standard which comes in addition to the already present Rain and Road riding modes. It also features an upgraded Riding Modes Pro package, a standard Dynamic Traction Control, and Dynamic Cruise Control.

The key new addition on the bike is its radar-powered active cruise control which is offered as an option. As the name suggests, it uses a radar sensor to adjust cruising speed. Unlike a similar system offered on Ducati bikes, it doesn't get a rear radar.

The model is expected to arrive in India around first half of 2021. When launched, it would cost around 24 lakh (Ex-showroom).
