Cosmetic changes include new liveries. Up-front there are winglets that now produce up to 10 kgs of downforce depending on the speed that the rider is doing. This additional weight helps in counteracting the wheelie tendency during acceleration. Also, it means that the traction control does not need to intervene more. Thus, helping riders in achieving faster lap times.
The rear section has also been redesigned to make it lighter and sportier. The number plate holder is also shorter now. As an accessory, there is a new hump cover and an endurance seat.
The standard equipment on the motorcycle has been changed. It now gets a USB charging socket and an M battery as standard. The 6.5-inch TFT screen now features more functions and a new rev counter display. The TFT screen can be controlled using a Multi-Controller located on the left handlebar.
The motorcycle comes with ABS Pro but now it also gets Brake Slide Assist and ABS Pro "Slick" setting functions. The new ‘Slick’ setting is made specifically for treadless slick tyres. The new Brake Slide Assist function allows the rider to make the rear slide out before the system kicks in.
