In terms of styling, the middleweight naked roadster does retain its sharp and aggressive design but received some important tweaks to mark its unique identity. These include a new bi-function LED headlamp with a clear irradiation range and light distribution, along with integrated low beam and high beam.

Yamaha also increased the height of the bike's handle by 12 mm and width by 32 mm for a more upright riding position, ensuring a more comfortable and relaxed riding posture. The bike also gets a new LCD multifunction metre with a negative display.

As for suspension, the bike features telescopic forks upfront and swingarm suspension on the back. The braking duties are taken care of by a 298 mm dual-disc on the front and a 245 mm single disc on the rear. Yamaha increased the diameter of the front disc to increase the braking potential,
