Powering the Imperiale 400 is a BS6 emission-compliant 374cc single-cylinder, air-cooled four-stroke electronically fuel-injected 4-valve SOHC long-stroke engine that produces 21 PS of power and 29 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed gearbox and wet multi-plate clutch. 

For cycle parts, the Imperiale 400 features double-cradle steel tubes and plate reinforced chassis that rides on 41mm diameter telescopic front forks and swingarm with double shock absorber on the rear. Stopping power comes from a single 300mm disc with 2 pistons floating calliper on the front and a single 240 mm disc with a single-piston floating calliper with a dual-channel ABS as standard.
