The bike has also received a steeper rake angle at 25 degrees, while the trail now stands at 99.9 mm. As an effect, the seating height has also been lowered by 36 mm, which is a welcoming move considering the previous bike has a fairly higher seat height. In addition to this, the ProTaper handlebars have now been narrowed by 40 mm. As per Indian Motorcycle, all these updates have been introduced to make the bike more agile and fluidic in terms of handling.

Other updates on the motorcycle include fully adjustable front and rear suspension, cylinder deactivation technology along with an updated engine map. The bike continues to feature a 1,203 cc V-Twin engine. This liquid-cooled unit delivers 123 bhp of power and 120 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.
