Talking of the common updates on the table for both the ne debuts, we have the new assist and slipper clutch to pull at levers and they just get away with a pinkie finger, while the skinny finger helps to avoid skidding of the rear wheel during drift or aggressive acceleration.
The comfort has been on update via suspension internals updates. And it continues with the stiffer spring constant. The seats are more comfortable as they have thick seats and dense padding on for long drives.
The styling has been clean with new lights as well. Leds are used from front to back and headlight is a bit more compact and mounted closure to steering the head for a more modern look.
The brake light is more of a tucked in thing. They also have an updated dash with LED display. Though the principals of engines and frame remains unchanged. And these all are enough for now for the better test drive. Have an informative day!!!
