The new innovative futuristic trellis has been used along with flat V-Twin engine to lower the center of gravity of the bike. Styling has been futuristic, sharp, elegant & innovative, and kept to minimum to give it a combination of beauty and machinery look. The inspiration came from examining the history, styling, craze and evolution of motorcycles. The oil age is coming to an end, so let’s wave goodbye to this age with some awesome designs so that it is remembered for a long time.
