For powerful braking to control this 198 kg (dry weight) heavy motorcycle, BSA has used a double channel ABS with a single 320 mm twin-piston floating calliper disc brake on the front wheel and a single 255mm single-piston floating calliper disc brake on the rear wheel. The large 1425 mm wheelbase and a comfortable 780 mm seat height is going to provide great comfort to the rider in the future.

BSA has used 41 mm telescopic forks on the front suspension and 5-step adjustable twin shock absorbers on the rear wheel. BSA has done a tremendous job to develop this classic motorcycle. It does not lag the necessary modern technology and also looks like a pure classic motorcycle.
