As said, the 302 is essentially a fully-faired version of the TNT300. As a result, the Tornado 302 shares various components with its naked sibling which includes the 41mm inverted telescopic fork with 120 mm travel, the monoshock with 45 mm travel, the 260mm twin-disc brake at the front and the single-disc brake at the rear. It will be offered with Metzeler tyres measuring 110/70-ZR17 and 150/60-ZR17 in size.

The bike may feature ABS as standard.
