    From what I can see, the longer suspension seems to have given it an amazing ground clearance, but I might be mistaken though.

    Hand guards aren't likely to substanially protect from windblast, I've personally experienced on my Duke 390. There's no escaping winter cold, and even otherwise not much help. The KTM ones are huge help in terms of accident protection, but these are visibly not as durable as KTM ones. Still, nice to see them on a 100cc, its a fresh sight.

    I believe a saree guard must be present on the retail version, even if not in pics.
    Kick start is still a defacto standard for a typical rural consumer so on a 100cc bike, its not bad, and no self could be to keep prices low. So, all good.
    That exhaust pipe looks (obviously) prepared for BS6, given that huge mid way cat-con...
    Brotherhood, Rules, Freedom. Xbhp.
    Indian riding = Alertness, Anticipation and Adjustment.
