"Large-diameter front disc brake adopted"
At the front, a large Ø267mm disc brake is adopted. The two-pot caliper makes full use of the outer perimeter of the disc to provide strong stopping power. The optimized specs of the operational parts provide a high-level of balance, excellent initial braking performance and good operational touch.
The inner tubes on the front fork are the first large Ø41mm units adopted on a motorcycle made in India and the stroke is a generous 130mm. With the front assembly dimensions, they provide good shock absorption. The good damping characteristics during acceleration and braking contribute to increasing stability.
