The braking system has a front floating disc 200 mm stainless steel with a corrugated profile and the rear drum of 150 mm in diameter.

The four-speed manual transmission, electric starting is that foot and semi slick tires soft compound front and medium rear to complete the technical equipment of the two-wheeled vehicle that could perhaps become a player in a league championship organized just from LML and Polini.
