The tapered and compact saddle accommodates driver and passenger in a more comfortable position, guaranteeing ample freedom of movement both in sport driving and in daily use. The renewed cover of the tank cap, fitted with a lock, fits perfectly to the tank and significantly improves the mobility of the passenger in longitudinal movements. Then finally, the tail fairing integrates the passenger grab handles for very clean lines and just as importantly, passenger comfort.

The frame, common to both models, is made of high strength, double closed steel cradle, a robust design that guarantees maximum agility, compactness and excellent performance. The black oxide colour accentuates and highlights the sporty character of the small Gileras and aesthetically integrates seamlessly with the engine unit, suspensions and exhaust.
