The leaked image (above) suggests that the bike features a fully-faired aggressive styling. From the looks of it, segment rivals such as the KTM RC390 and the TVS Apache RR310 might feel the heat from this bike thanks to its sleek yet aggressive and sharp aesthetics. Though some might also find a reflection of BMW S1000RR's twin-beam headlamps in this bike.

Though its official name isn't confirmed yet, the spy image suggests that it will come with features such as a dual headlamp setup residing under an angular fairing, clip-on handlebars, split-type seats, and raised rear-set footpegs to give it an aggressive stance.

There will be a 249 cc liquid-cooled engine reported to produce around 27bhp of maximum power. The transmission option will be a six-speed unit. The bike weighs just 159 kg (kerb) which makes it one of the lightest bikes in its class.

The leaked documents also say that there will be two variants of the model. The higher trim will feature an aluminum single-sided swingarm, while the base trim will get a steel double-sided swingarm.
