The 502c also gets unmatched comfort and riding ergonomics, thanks to the low seating position, wide swept handlebars and forward-set foot pegs. The adjustable rear mono-shock is flexible to suit the rider’s needs based on the weight requirements and riding conditions. The braking duties are handled by dual semi-floating 280mm discs up front and a 240mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS offering strong bite and progressive feedback to the rider.
