The headlights and taillight are LED which are bright and project at a proper angle. The indicators on the front are in the headlights whereas the rear indicators are LED and kept on the rear fenders.
The front has an electronic windshield which can be adjusted at two different heights which is something new in the Nepali market. The electronic adjustment of the windshield helps protect the riders from windblasts and improves the ride.
The rear of the Zontes 310T also includes an alloy rack as standard which is capable of holding large luggage. You can also get the Zontes panniers which are sold separately and can be very useful for storing.
Made out of titanium, the exhausts are stylish too as it has two heads. The bent pipe of the exhaust is also made up of stainless steel so rusting will not be a problem.
The alloy wheels are lightweight with a diamond-cut design. They are made up of aluminium and are lightweight ensuring good impact resistance and enabling the use of tubeless tyres.

The Zontes 310T is a performance-oriented adventure touring motorcycle that is powered by a 312cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with a dry sump lubrication system.
