The results for this vehicle speak for themselves, and the 1,245cc engine truly delivers from the moment the key is turned in the ignition.

LED lighting technology

More radiance, visibility and prominence: The full-LED swivelling headlights and adaptive headlights guarantee superior illumination and constant range - to the side, up and down. Depending on the ground gradient, payload and inclination in curves.  

This way, the light is with you wherever you ride. The LED turn signals with Cruising Light option provide an eye-catching appearance with constantly dimmed lighting at the front.
