As per one of the recent reports, the Pune Smart City Development Corporation Limited (PSCDCL) has added a fleet of 80 Bajaj Pulsar 150 motorcycles. Apart from getting the traffic police colours, the motorcycles are equipped with a host of new features to assist the cops on duty. All the 80 new motorcycles have been updated in a white colour shade while getting traffic police sirens and more.

The front end of the Bajaj Pulsar traffic police motorcycles has been equipped with a windshield that features a ‘Pune City Traffic Branch’ sticker. In addition to this, every motorcycle features standard traffic police requirements such as GPS, camera, and jammers.

The left front guard features a megaphone while the traffic police riders can further operate the lighting and sound controls from just below the ignition. The controls also allow the riders to choose the flashing and blinking lights when required while playing sirens of varying tones.

Some of the traffic police motorcycles have been further equipped with a slot for placing the neon-lit baton on the fuel tank. The patrolling officer can further use the speaker function to relay his message to the team without having to stop the patrol. The camera module situated on the front console offers video recording while at the same time offering clearer views of the road.

The custom headlight design gives the motorcycle a sturdy appeal while the red indicator at the left and blue indicator at the right does justice to the police fleet of bikes. The tail light of the motorcycles is larger in comparison to the one on the stock model, specifically designed to ensure visibility. Apart from the cosmetic changes appropriate for patrolling cops, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 remains mechanically unaltered.

According to recent reports, Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI) is planning to launch a new product portfolio in the 300cc-500cc mid-size motorcycle segment in the upcoming 18 months. The reports also suggest that the brand will be doubling their production for the premium motorcycle segment in India, which will allow them to compete in the market with the likes of giants like Royal Enfield.

The brand recently set up an all-new premium bike division that comprises of 15 senior executives with a strong passion for premium bikes as well as knowledge on the parts. HMSI has christened the new department as “Big Wing”, which will be launching new 300cc-500cc motorcycles in the Indian market.

The brand is expected to roll out the first cruiser motorcycle under the “Big Wing” moniker in the coming 18 months. Honda is also planning on launching new Big Wing outlets in major towns of the country while the total number of outlets across India will stand at 100.

The brand has already launched some of its Big Wing outlets in major metro cities, which currently offers premium motorcycles like Honda CB300R going all the way up to the top-tier Honda Gold Wing. With the introduction of a new portfolio, the brand plans on dominating the mid-size motorcycle segment and downsize the top position holder Royal Enfield.

Commenting on the launch of new premium cruiser motorcycles and sportbikes, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Sr VP, sales and marketing at Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India stated –

“We are approaching the premium bike business with the new energy and zeal than ever before, not to be mixed with a mass-market approach. We know that pricing is going to be a key consideration for increasing the volumes and viability of our dealers. There has to be a model that is locally produced to make it viable,”

“We have been maintaining that the middleweight category has good potential in terms of volumes. The study is on to understand exactly what kind of portfolio we need. There will be a different kind of body styles in the mid-size space that will be introduced to cater to a larger audience”.

As per the reports, Honda has already tuned out a portfolio of more than a dozen motorcycles that will be sold via Big Wing outlets. One can expect the brand to roll out several new 300cc to 500cc motorcycles in the Indian market. All the bikes are expected to be locally assembled while some of them will be imported as CBUs.

Royal Enfield Inter Scrambler 650 by K-Speed Customs: We come across major motorcycle modifications from time to time but some unique customizations stick with us and are worth a mention. One such motorcycle modification we came across recently has been done by K-Speed (Thailand) on the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.

One of the best things that set this modification apart is the repositioning of the instrument panel near the engine. The factory-fitted instrument console has been placed by the customizers in a vertical position just near the motorcycle engine.

Taking inspiration from the Triumph Scrambler, the modification done to the RE Interceptor 650 features the same exhaust setup. The twin Diablo pipes have been covered with heat shielding material that protects the rider’s skin while the round exhaust ends further offers the motorcycle a unique appeal.

The modifiers opted for a muscular stance for the motorcycle by equipping it with massive off-road tyres at either side. The 130/60 tyres at both sides have been mated to blackened out rims. The engine box has been further offered a shield while the custom side panels feature mesh openings.

The customizers have offered LED lighting set up at the front while the redesigned single-seat saddle further adds to the aggressive stance of the Royal Enfield Inter Scrambler 650. A large custom-pipe handlebar has replaced the standard unit while the switchgear setup has also been tweaked with the one with much simpler functionality. The overall blackened out components adds to its surreal beauty.

The customizers have not offered any mechanical changes to the motorcycle. The modified Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 continues to be powered by a 648cc parallel-twin, 4-stroke, fuel-injected engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 47HP at 7250 rpm and a peak torque of 52 Nm at 5250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It continues to feature the same disc brakes at either end while the standard suspension setup has also ben retained.

The modification experts at K-Speed, Thailand has once again mesmerised the audience with their yet again superb customization to the Yamaha XSR155. The retro-inspired motorcycle has been offered an off-road beast look which is bound to grab attention on the road. Known as the Yamaha XSR155 Trail Breaker, the modifiers have further accentuated the rugged appeal of the motorcycle by replacing major stock panels on the motorcycle with the aftermarket units.

The crash guard at the front features the twin-pod headlight unit mounted on it while the illumination has been further enhanced by auxiliary lights on either end of the crash guard. The modifiers have retained the same instrument cluster as well as the flat handlebar unit as seen on the stock model though the switchgear has been replaced with an aftermarket unit.

The subframe of the motorcycle has been tweaked a bit while the rider-only saddle sits on top. The fuel tank of the Yamaha XSR155 Trail Breaker has been kept in stock condition though the modifiers have opted for a unique garnish on top. The ground clearance and the rear suspension travel of the motorcycle have been further increased via the repositioned twin-pod exhaust outlets in addition to redesigned tail light under the single-piece saddle.

Coming to the mechanical changes, the suspension duties are handled by same USD forks at the front while the rear shock absorber has been replaced with an aftermarket one. In addition to this, the brakes setup now features callipers sourced from Brembo. The rugged look of the motorcycle has been enhanced by the use of spoke wheels in place of the standard alloy units seen on the Yamaha XSR155.

Apart from this, the other mechanical bits of the motorcycle remains the same. Powering the modified motorcycle is the same 155cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-valve engine that is good for 19.3HP of maximum power at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque at 8,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The stock model of the Yamaha XSR155 is expected to launch in India in 2020 with an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.50 lakh.
