In terms of looks, the main difference that’s instantaneously noticeable is the revised single unit headlight as oppose to the outgoing model’s asymmetrical dual head lamp. The front cowl has been discarded for 2015. The tank and tank shrouds now receive a more compact and muscular design with sharper lines adding to the character of this roadster. The tail end however remains more or less the same. The wheels too now receive a newer updated design. Other features include an upside down suspension, LED turn indicators, intelligent luggage solutions and heated grips.
