The bike features a newly updated powertrain which is claimed to produce more low and mid-range torque. As per the bikemaker, the engine has been "optimized lifting of the pushrod and rockers timing cams and a consequent adapting of the engine control electronics." The company, however, is yet to reveal the official output figures of the updated bike. Previously, the same 853cc, air-cooled, transverse V-twin engine produced 80 PS of power and 81.3 Nm of peak torque. The transmission duties are done by the same 6-speed unit as before.
The bike carries forward a majority of the hardware components from its predecessor, but with the latest update, it has also received new wheels and tyres. Also, it now features two new riding modes - Sport and Custom along with a total of five settings.
For the record, the bike was also available for purchase in the Indian market (albeit, for a brief period) after its launch at the Auto Expo 2020. It retailed through Piaggio's Motoplex dealerships and the updated bike is also likely to be headed to the Indian market soon.
