The new colours will add zing to the trendy scooters.

The scooters will be updated in a few weeks’ time. The analogue-digital combo cluster will be redesigned for better aesthetics. Expect the information on the cluster such as speed, fuel level, time, odometer and tripmeter readings to remain.

The mechanical underpinnings of the scooter will be the same as the current generation. They were launched in 2015 and updated to BS4 norms in March.
