The engine of this bike has a cylinder where the dia of the bore (76mm) is higher than the stroke length (55mm). This reduces the vibration level in the engine and increases the torque level. The engine uses water for cooling and a DOHC is mounted over it to operate the valves. The cubic capacity of the engine is 249 cc and the highest power developed out of this engine is 23 bhp at 8500 rpm. The torque thrown out of this engine is gradual but helps the bike strike the 100 km/hr mark in a quicker pace. The maximum torque rated on the engine is 22 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine also has a sophisticated fuel injection system that senses and measures various physical aspects like engine temperature, atmospheric temperature, coolant temperature etc to make the right proportion of charge available in the cylinder block. This improves the performance of engine in all rpms and increases fuel efficiency.
Design And Comfort
The bike is sculpted in a way to couple comfort into the dirt bike appeal and characteristics. The inverted telescopic suspensions with long stroke and the pro link suspension system with an axle of longer travel not only make the bike tall but also give a steady and flat seating position. The tubular frame offers rigidity with low mass and gives better weight balance on vehicle. The under tank cowl on this bike gives the effect of a spoiler and adds to the aesthetic looks of the bike too. The exhaust muffler is raises towards the rear and the tires are slim but are threaded deep to provide better road grip and also add to the rugged nature of this bike. The bike comes with a digital instrument cluster that has a clock, fuel meter and speed and distance indicator.
Ride And Handling
The bike has suspensions at front and rear that give better support and comfort to the riding in both on-road and off-road conditions. The longer wheel base with a slimmer body makes the bike easy to handle and the design of the frame itself makes the bike slimmer and easy to handle. Discs are mounted on front and rear tyres which have piston calipers driven through hydraulic force. The wheels are much larger and slimmer but have tread design that gives higher grip to the bike in wide variety of roads. The handle is well within the reach of the rider to keep the spine of the rider straight.
