With the latest 2022 update, the motorcycle has gained new adventure-oriented components such as 17-litre metal panniers on both sides, an engine guard, a centre stand, and a power socket. For the record, these were previously unavailable.
At the heart of the motorcycle sits the same 249cc, 180-degree, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine. This powertrain was also previously found doing duty on the last-gen Ninja 250. This engine has been rated to pump out close to 33bhp of maximum power at 11,500rpm, while the transmission remains the same six-speed gearbox.
The entry-level adventure tourer from the Japanese auto giant rides on a wheel combination of 19-17-inch spoke units. The wheels come shod with dual-purpose rubbers.
The suspension duties are handled by 130mm telescopic forks at the front and a link-type monoshock at the rear. For braking, the bike uses a single disc at both ends.
