The new Exciter comes equipped with totally reworked body panels. From the front, it looks much more aggressive and modern thanks to the presence of a LED headlight and a pair of LED DRLs. The side-mounted exhaust ensures that the two-wheeler has a sporty appearance from the side. The tail light of the new Exciter has been replaced as well and is said to resemble the Yamaha R1’s.
