common features one would find include electronic fuel injection, disc brakes front and rear with ABS as standard, single Kayaba shock absorber with preload regulation, LCD instrumentation, 13.5-liter tear-drop steel fuel tank, round headlight with LED ring, “new-tech” LED tail light, and under seat USB. with so many things in common, you must be thinking: “what other things set each model apart?” about that, actually there are quite a few details, including different handlebar style and position, seat hide and seat design, wheels and tires package, fuel tank covers, mufflers, colors offered, cosmetic tweaks, plus other extras like headlight grill, mud flap types et cetera.
