The white-coloured piping over the seats has been designed to sync-in with the scooter's base colour. Bits like headlight surround, mirrors and exhaust shield all come in matte black shade. The limited edition scooter also gets a smoked windscreen which adds to the overall appeal of the vehicle. Moreover, it also gets matching gold coloured wheels which make it look more classy than its regular counterparts.
