Featuring split seats, a tank that is sculpted, and a short rear section, the Mantis has an angular appearance. A distinctive DRL and twin headlights are visible at the front of the vehicle. There is a 320mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear, and all-LED lighting throughout the bike. Other features include 41mm telescopic forks at the front, 17-inch alloy wheels, a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear, and a 320mm disc at the front, and a 230mm disc at the rear.
The wheelbase of the Orxa Mantis is 1450mm, and the seat height is 815mm. Thanks to the lighter battery pack, a structural part of the motorcycle, the motorcycle is the lightest in the segment, weighing 182kg. The frames themselves have been revised to IBW 2022, and an aluminum subframe has been used. There is also 180mm of ground clearance on this vehicle.
