    The tubular frame of the bike is composed of chrome-molybdenum steel which bolsters the V-twin engine. The electronics included in the bike will be responsible for traction control and ABS along with anti-stoppie and anti-wheelie control. Of course the rider will be in full control of these and may choose to disable these controls.
