The rear suspension arrangement also contributes to the bike’s compact design, freeing up space for a large-volume silencer under the engine. Rear shock features adjustable preload, with 7 positions to suit rider size and payload.
Compact, stacked instrument cluster matches the bike’s overall design and features an easy-to-read layout.
