The drivetrain wasn't be able to separated from the Deus cold hands. The racing regulations allow an increase of displacement of 20%, so the Super Cub went from 49 cc to 60 cc. The engine remains the 4-stroke OVH clutchless, three-speed unit, but Deus does not provide any tech specs for this mini monster.
In the suspension sector also at both ends were upgraded with race-grade components in order to improve the motorcycle balancing while speeding on the racing track.
