The Nexus boasts a 6.2-inch LCD display for the ES variant and a 7-inch touchscreen TFT display for the ST variant, both controllable via handlebar-mounted switchgear with Bluetooth connectivity. It features a full LED light setup, three riding modes, and hill hold assist. While offering several features, some competitors provide additional functionalities such as traction control, removable batteries, and rear disc brakes.
