The 249 cc twin cylinder DOHC engine sits inside a diamond-type frame. The engine generates 36 PS of power at 12,000 rpm, and 22.6 Nm of torque at 10,000 rpm. A six-speed transmission does duty in the bike. A monocross twin-tube rear unit and a front telescopic fork handle the suspension responsibility. Brakes include discs on both ends, but without ABS.
