The tank guards at the front receive a slight design overhaul. It’s now smaller and more advanced, based on customer feedback that the previous unit made it smaller for taller passengers. The rear rack now has a dash, making it easy to mount luggage and baskets. The flyscreen atop the round headlight is also new and features a slimmer design. Royal Enfield says the seat has also been improved for more comfort.
