The scooter will come equipped with class leading features such as a tachometer, powerful headlamp, telescopic front shock absorbers and front disc brake.
Powering the new scooter will be a same 125cc engine which does the duty on the Ray but this engine is expected to offer slightly more power than provided by the Ray.
