The braking duties are handled by disc brakes at either side which is further mated to a dual-channel ABS unit as standard.

In addition to that, the bike features a negative LCD display for the instrument console, an underbelly cowl and a side-stand engine cut-off switch. There is no word on the pricing yet though one can expect the updated model to get a price hike of around INR 7,000 to INR 10,000 over the current-gen BS4 model which is presently available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.35 lakh.
