The seat is now lower and more rounded at the edges to enable riders of all statures to get a better grip on the ground. The same modification has been applied to the SXV too. The brake pedal has been reinforced to resist damage in the event of a fall or a collision with stones or branches. These are just some examples of how race development can cover all possible aspects of a
