It is channelled to the rear tyre via a 6-speed transmission.

The under-belly exhaust, which has four square-shaped tailpipes right in front of the back wheel yet vents exhaust gases to the side, is a distinctive feature. Both the base and high-power varieties have upside-down front forks, although the base has in-house forks while the high-power variation has KYB forks.
