Full Lighting – Twin 35-Watt headlights illuminate the trail ahead and the tail light/brake light communicate the driver’s moves to followers.

Edge Design – Edgy, aggressive bodywork and minimalist style turn heads. Meets CARB “Green Label” emissions standards – Green-sticker legal in the state of California.
