The changes are limited to the updated paint. The engine specifications continue to include a 645 cc 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC 90˚, V-twin motor with a fuel injection system that employs a six-speed constant-mesh gearbox. Hardware specifications, too, remain unaltered. Thus, braking department comprises twin discs at the front with two-piston Tokico callipers, while the rear uses a single disc with a Nissin-sourced single-piston calliper.

Shock absorption task is performed by conventional telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock suspension at the back. The adventure tourer rides on tubeless tyre compatible wire-spoke wheels that come wrapped in 110/80R19 front and 150/70R17 rear rubber.
