A chopper is a custom motorcycle that has a modified steering angle and most of the useless parts are removed to give a clean look. The Forty-Eight now is finished in the Nardo Grey paint scheme which does look very attractive. Many people have been opting for the Nargo Grey paint scheme and the popularity of the colour has been rising rapidly. The colour was founded by Audi and is usually available on their RS vehicles.

Maratha Motorcycles have made several small cosmetic upgrades to the motorcycle.
