The 124kg moped gets a seven-litre fuel tank that feeds the EURO 3-compliant single-cylinder motor with a single overhead cam, managed by a six-speed manual transmission with a wet clutch, to provide 17.7hp at 8,500rpm for the rear wheel.

Grip comes from its 90/80 (front) and 120/70 (rear) tubeless tyres that have been fitted to 17-inch wheels that gives it a 150mm ground clearance while having a 1,290mm wheelbase.

In terms of equipment, it comes with LEDs for its day-time running lights, signal lamps and rear brake light, while a LCD speedometer and analogue engine-speed combination instrument cluster stares back at the rider.
