It's all about the details from the 58 litre panniers to the removable pillion seat/Carbon cover, red cylinder heads, remote shock adjustment by the seat and LED daytime running lights.
The ride modes are essentially Sport with an aggressive throttle response, Touring which tones it down a bit and Rain which reduces available torque to prevent wheelspins.
Carbon Fibre is used liberally on the MGX-21 to save 16kg from the mudguard, fuel tank panels and engine panels to the pannier covers. While the funky front wheel looks like it might also be Carbon it's actually Aluminium alloy with an aerodynamic Carbon cover.
For entertainment there is a beefy 50W infotainment system with 4 speakers, voice recognition via your mobile/Bluetooth and all the usual methods of hooking up your music. The 6-spoke 21" front wheel takes a Dunlop Elite 3 120/70 tyre and the rear 16" a 180/60.
Accessories include a top box, tall screen, footboards, comfort seat and billet Aluminium mirrors/levers/cylinder head covers.
