The engine is tuned for all range torque delivery which gives you unlimited thrill across the power band and the fastest in segment 0-60 of 2.81 secs.
The power is delivered through a 6-speed transmission with an all-new Bi Directional Quickshifter. The quickshifter is specially tuned for widest operating range starting from 2,300rpm all the way to the red line. The state-of-the-art Throttle-By-Wire system comprises of an intelligent 46mm large throttle body that provides a crisp power delivery.
Additionally, the motorcycle offers Race Tuned Linear Stability Control (RT-LSC) that includes straight line dual channel ABS, cruise control, linear traction ontrol and rear lift protection. The first in segment cruise control maintains the set speed without any throttle or clutch input helping in reducing rider fatigue over long-distance riding. The cruise control feature allows you to downshift and upshift up to two gears to achieve optimum cruise rpm and use cruise for longer periods.
