Both motorcycles share a lot of common features. They have a similar powertrain option, i.e., a 649 cc inline four-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC. The engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 93.8 hp, which comes at 12,000 rpm, while the peak torque is 64 Nm coming at 8,500 rpm.

The suspension duties are done by a Showa separate function upside-down fork (SFF) at the front and a monoshock with 10-position preload adjustment, which is attached to a cast aluminium swingarm at the rear. The front unit is 6 kg lighter than the earlier version.

The radial-mount Nissin callipers along with the 310 mm discs having only a single calliper are present at the front, while there is a 240 mm brake disc at the rear. Both are further assisted by two-channel ABS. Moreover, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) is also present, which is the manufacturer’s own version of traction control. The 15.4-litre fuel tank, all-new LCD instrument display having LED lighting at the front as well as the rear are some other notable common equipment.
