On the outside, the new motorcycle will feature a completely new single-pod headlight with LED DRLs at the front. This setup looks inspired by the new YZF-R7 supersport bike that was globally revealed a few months back. In addition, the bike will also feature fairing-mounted rear-view mirrors. Other design highlights of the new bike will include a muscular fuel tank that gels in with a split-style saddle, a side-slung exhaust and a sleek taillight.

One of the biggest updates on the new model will include its upside-down front forks which will replace the conventional telescopic front forks on the existing model. For braking, the bike will use single discs on both wheels. The brakes will function along with dual-channel ABS.

At the heart of the bike will sit the same 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that will be responsible for delivering about similar output in comparison to the current model.
