Additionally, the Pearl White colour has the rear alloy painted red and the front one coated black, while the Matte Black colour has the tyres painted red colour. A strong red accent line is also applied to the fuel tank's midsection. The seat has fresh patterns and red accents on the side now. Apart from these things the complete bike is painted in black colour.
The bike's mechanicals now have adjustable brake and clutch levers. The bike also has a digital instrument cluster, riding modes for rain, cities, and sports, and Bluetooth connectivity with navigation capabilities. The bike has single-channel ABS and disc brakes at the front and back for safety.
In addition to altering the motorcycle's appearance, the brand also changed some of its mechanical parts. The Special Edition sports new adjustable brake and clutch levers as opposed to the fixed levers on the ordinary edition. The redesigned exhaust, which the manufacturer refers to as a Bullpup muffler, is another noteworthy improvement. The company believes that the new exhaust's 1 kg lighter weight helps to retain a superior power-to-weight ratio and improves the distinctive RTR exhaust sound.
