The other additional accessories include laced front and rear wheels, quick release windscreens and saddlebags. It has similar chassis as the Indian Scout along with the suspension and brakes.

The liquid-cooled V-Twin closed loop fuel injected engine pumps out a maximum power of 78 horses and a massive 88.8 Nm of peak torque delivered at 5,800 rpm. It comes linked with a five-speed transmission. It rides on 16-inch tyres up front and back and has 120 mm telescopic front fork suspension with 76 mm dual shock setup at the rear.

Proportionally similar to the Indian Scout, it measures 2,311 mm in length, 1,207 mm in height, 880 mm in width and has a ground clearance of 135 mm with 1,562 mm wheelbase.
