The bike weighs around 172 kg and has a fairly accessible seat-height of just 710 mm which has been designed to accommodate riders of all heights.

It features a completely blacked-out paint scheme with black exhaust, wheels, body panels etc. Its cruiser look is further complemented by circular headlight upfront, fat tyres, shorter tail-end, front forks with gaiters and alloys.

The instrument panel comes as a semi-digital unit with an analogue rev counter along with a small digital screen displaying the fuel gauge, speedometer and odometer readings. It has been given a fuel-tank capacity of 12.5 litres.
