Looks and Styling
The sturdy looking bike has unique design elements that include twin headlamp, half-fairing, curvaceous rear-view mirrors, and a chunky masculine fuel tank. The DC-powered twin headlamp is an innovation and the throw of the two headlights is powerful, ensuring proper on-road lighting. The exposed square tube, double cradle chassis and plenty of chrome enhance the masculine look of the GF Laser.
