In May 2019, the motorcycle was updated with a slipper clutch, and the company also introduced a new colour named 'Phantom Black', which replaced the old 'Matte Black' colour.[5]

2020 Update edit

In January 2020, the motorcycle was launched to cater to the newest emission norms of India known as BS6. Ride by wire throttle gives this motorcycle a better throttle response.

The motorcycle was also updated with features like colour TFT screen instrument cluster with mobile phone connectivity and 4 riding modes (Urban, Rain, Sport, and Track). The urban and Rain modes produce low power and torque which offers better fuel consumption. The other updates were newer Michelin Road 5 tyres and the Glide Thru Technology Plus.[6]
