Both the motorcycles are powered by a 313cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that puts out 34.5PS at 9,500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch. So far there has been no update from the manufacturer as to whether the motorcycle will comply with the stringent BSVI norms. Most likely, the updated emission tune could hike the price by Rs 10,000-12,000 for both motorcycles.
