The seat and the rear of the motorcycle look sleek and there is a LED taillight as well. The low slung clip on handlebar gives the customised motorcycle a sporty feel. An engine fairing, raised ground clearance, new exhaust muzzle and blackened multi-spoke wheels wrapped in chunky dual-purpose tyres make it a truly eye-catching machine.
