It is powered by a new air-cooled, 349cc, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 20.12bhp and a peak torque output of 27Nm. A 5-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel. The new engine is more refined and relaxed over longer distances. This makes it perfect for long rides like the one undertaken by Archana.
