There are a lot of retro features on both motorcycles, such as round headlights, short fenders, instrument clusters that consist of one pod, alloy wheels, and side-slung exhausts. As far as first impressions go, the Ronin’s LED headlights and slightly lower set design make it immediately appealing.
