The front uses fully adjustable racing forks from WP while the rear uses a race spec mono-shock with adjustable compression and rebound damping. Other parts include race spec seat, CNC machined fold-able levers, track friendly bony panels and Akrapovic exhaust system. All these makes this bike track specific and illegal for road use.
