Front and rear disc brake with ABS
Vehicle functionality has been tested in wide-ranging climatic conditions with an operating ambient temperature of -10 degrees to 55 degrees (C). Front and rear disc brakes with ABS are coupled with large tyres. This is intended for hard and safe braking owing to improved traction and road grip. A dual cradle frame is in use, and improves vehicle stability, riding dynamics, and cornering ability.
