The high quality specs went beyond the engine. Its chassis is made of aluminum, which contributes to a dry weight of only 190 kg. The suspensions, on the other hand, allow a series of adjustments, both at the back and at the front, where there is an inverted fork and 41 mm tubes. Brakes feature dual 320mm discs with four pistons at the front and a single 230mm disc with two pistons at the rear. The 6-speed gearbox has a slip clutch.
