The graphics used in this bike are good and makes it very attractive. Overall it looks very sporty. The fuel tank is very well designed too which adds to its beauty. The tyres have 6 spokes alloys which yet again is unique for Phoenix. Mud guard, lights, fuel tank are all multicolored which looks good too. Engine and exhaust are all colored black.
Seat is not very high but is upright due to which for long distance commute too, the rider would not have a stiff back. The rear view mirrors could have been slightly bigger for better view. Tachometer is absent but you get digital displays for speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and tripmeter. The motorcycle has both electric and kick start and is fitted with tubeless tyres. The kerb weight is 116kg and has a great ground clearance of 165mm which could be an added plus if you have to ride on country roads.
