The Lifan X-Pect 150 comes with a halogen-LED light setup. The front gets a 35W/35W halogen headlight. The headlight may not be the best for the highway but is more than enough for the city commute, and no one rides through a trail at night.

The bike has a fuel capacity of 10liters, which is more than enough for a dirt bike. The fuel capacity is enough for long hours of trail riding and even hitting the highway now and then.
The length, width, and height of the Lifan X-Pect 150 are 2050mm, 790mm, and 1325mm, respectively. The bike is only 130kg, heavier than a 125cc dirt bike but lighter than a regular 150cc commuter bike. The bike has a wheelbase of 1360mm, which is relatively better than most other bikes of this segment. The wheelbase and weight of this bike will also allow the bike to lean during cornering, but it is not suggested, as this is a dirt bike.
Engine and Transmission:
The Lifan X-Pect 150 comes with a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, and 150cc engine. The engine is carbureted and air-cooled. The engine pumps out 14BHP of power at 8000rpm and 14Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The power and torque figures are enough for the bike to cut through trails like a hot knife through butter.

The bike does not get ABS or CBS, which is fine, as, during off-roading, the bike will require individual brakes to work separately. However, the rear brake would have been much better if it were a disc brake.
The Lifan X-Pect 150 comes with special suspensions that will account for the sudden jerks during landing or the trail roads. The front of the bike gets telescopic forks, and the rear gets a mono-shock suspension. The suspensions are expected to be good enough for landing and holding well through bumpy trails.
The Lifan X-Pect 150 has spoked wheels. Spoked wheels are best for off-roading, as they can be easily repaired. The bike has a 90/90 section wheel at the front and a 110/90 section wheel at the rear. Thin wheels may seem very weird to street Rossis, but thinner wheels are very desirable during off-roading.
