What we know so far
In terms of design, the bike offers a slim look. At the front, the bike has an extended beak. It gets a tall, wide, and curved windscreen for enhanced protection. Below that we see the twin-LED headlights and LED daytime running lights. The mudguard is set close to the wheel. Along the sides, the bike gets large fairings that extend to the front. The nicely sculpted fuel tank offers a comfortable ride. The handlebars are raised to give a more upright riding position. We get to see split seats for added comfort of the pillion. The rear wheel gets a tire hugger. In India, the TRK 251 is being offered with three colour options; Glossy White, Glossy Black, and Glossy Grey.
