Both motorcycles get the same 155 cc single-cylinder motor which is air-cooled and makes 13.4 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 13.8 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The power and torque output drop marginally from 14 bhp and 14 Nm on both motorcycles. The gearbox too stays the same, a 5-speed unit. Apart from the changes to the engine to make it BS6 compliant, the motorcycles stay exactly the same in all other aspects.
