In profile, the bike looks muscular but as you continue to look at the motorcycle two things grab your attention – first, the clip-on handlebars seem a little high set, giving it a more sports tourer stance than a sport bike, and the relatively forward set (for a fully faired sport bike) foot-rests. Bajaj’s explanation for these is that both have been engineered into the design to ensure that riders remain comfortable in the saddle in spite of long hours spent in it or when riding through heavy traffic, which can be a pain for the rider’s wrists and back on a more track-focused machine.
As a result of these two aspects the riding position is quite comfortable. You sit slightly less hunched than you would on a more focused sport bike. On the downside, not having proper rear-set foot-rests reduces the ground clearance under extreme cornering. We even had a chance to sit on the pillion seat, which is quite comfy. The grab-handles, which are essentially carved recesses in the tail-piece, are quite nice to hang on to as well.
