The motorcycle will be powered by a V4 powertrain which can be traced back to Honda’s MotoGP challenger, the Honda RC213V. The Honda V4 is expected to get LED projector headlamps. The bike can be expected with integrated winglets for downforce.

The single seater motorcycle is also expected to get air scoops and winglets which will be aimed to make the bike aerodynamically efficient. The bike is also expected to get a single side mounted canister exhaust.
