Hero Xtreme 1R concept motorcycle has been recently showcased by the brand at the EICMA 2019. With a futuristic design and an aggressive stance, the production variant of the successor to the Xtreme 200R is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year 2020.

Specifically designed to target the younger audience, the Hero Xtreme 1R concept motorcycle features sharp styling in addition to getting a sports bike persona. The kerb weight of the motorcycle stands at just 140kgs, all thanks to its sleek design profile while the LED headlight setup further adds to its sports bike look.

Coming to the rear, the motorcycle features a smaller tail profile flowing towards the rear while featuring an LED taillight and a GoPro camera just below it. The combination of red, white with blackened-out body panels further offer the concept variant a distinguished character.

The brand has equipped the concept variant of the motorcycle with a floating rider saddle though, the production variant might not come out with the same aggressive stance.

The slick tyres offered to the motorcycle in addition to a bulky front apron looks splendid and one cannot expect the brand to offer the same to the production variant. Hero MotoCorp has equipped the motorcycle with Xtreme 200R chassis with chunkier tyres but they are highly unlikely to be carried onto the production variant of the motorcycle.

There aren’t many details disclosed by the brand on the engine specifications though one can easily recognise the use of air-cooler integrated below the belly pan. If the brand decides to bring out the production variant of the Hero Xtreme 1R concept sometime in the next year, one can expect it to be equipped with an all-new high-performance 200cc liquid-cooled engine.

KTM has shocked everyone by unveiling the bigger and better version of the 790 Duke at the EICMA 2019. Being promoted as the ‘Super Scalpel’, the new KTM 890 Duke R is powered by an 890cc 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine. It is capable to generate a maximum power of 121HP @ 9250 rpm and a peak torque of 99Nm @ 7750 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

In terms of design, the 890 Duke R looks more or less similar to the recently-launched 790 Duke. As per the latest details available, KTM will replace the 790 Duke with the 890 Duke R in the Indian market sometime in the next year with an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 9 lakhs.

According to the reports, the less-powerful 790 Duke is affecting the popularity of the motorcycle brand ever since the introduction of the more powerful Kawasaki Z900, Ducati Monster 821, and Triumph Street Triple RS. To stay ahead in the game, KTM has revealed the 890 Duke R with more power and a better power-to-weight ratio.

Like the 790 Duke, the new KTM 890 Duke R is also equipped with an all-digital instrument console with KTM MyRide. In terms of braking, the street motorcycle is equipped with a 320mm front disc brake and a 240mm rear disc brake, which are further mated to a 2-channel Bosch 9.1 MP ABS unit, including Cornering ABS and Supermoto Mode (disengegable).

The KTM 890 Duke R is also equipped with traction control with lean angle sensitivity, 3 riding modes and an optional track mode. In terms of dimensions, the seat height of the motorcycle is 834mm whereas the ground clearance stands at 206mm. The fuel tank capacity is 14-litres while the 890 Duke R weighs 166kgs.

After being teased for multiple times, the 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R has been officially unleashed at the EICMA 2019 auto show in Milan, Italy. On the new-gen model, the first change that can be observed is that it has a completely new exhaust with downpipes snaking around the engine to improve the lean angle, which allows for a bigger radiator and better handling through corners. The radiator shroud fairing for the motorcycle is much more aggressive than the last-gen model of the KTM 1290 Super Duke R.

The 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R also has an all-new swingarm which is connected to the rear shock absorber via a link instead of being directly connected as on the last-gen model. Mechanically too, there has been some re-working on the powertrain as the updated 1301cc LC8 V-twin engine is now Euro5-compliant and it also gets a new cooling mechanism.

The updated engine of the 2020 model is capable to generate a maximum power of 177HP and a peak torque of 140NM. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The riding position of the bike looks pitched forward that is what we have already observed in the last-gen model of the Super Duke R.

Like the last-gen model, the 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R is also equipped with an all-digital instrument console. In terms of braking, the motorcycle is equipped with a 320mm front disc brake and a 240mm rear disc brake, which are further mated to a 2-channel Bosch 9.1 MP ABS unit, including Cornering ABS and Supermoto Mode (disengegable).

In terms of dimensions, the seat height of the motorcycle is 835mm whereas the ground clearance stands at 160mm. The fuel tank capacity is 16-litres while the 2020 model of the 1290 Super Duke R weighs 189kgs.

As of now, KTM has no plans to launch the 1290 Super Duke R in the Indian market. In case, the brand considers the streetfighter for India, it will be priced at around INR 15 lakhs and would be competing with other naked motorcycles like the Honda CB1000R+ and the upcoming Kawasaki Z H2.

As expected, KTM has officially revealed the much-awaited 390 Adventure at the EICMA 2019 in Milan, Italy. The all-new adventure motorcycle will launch in the Indian market on December 6 this year. The KTM 390 Adventure is heavily inspired by the 790 Adventure in terms of the overall design profile.

Mechanically, the KTM 390 Adventure is powered by the same engine as in the 390 Duke. The 373.2cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine is capable of producing 43HP of maximum power and 37Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It was expected that KTM will tune the engine differentially to make the bike more adventure specific but, in comparison to the 390 Duke, the brand has not made any changes to the power and torque output.

The adventure motorcycle is equipped with a 100/90-19 front tyre and a 130/80-17 rear tyre. Talking about the comfort, the seat of the bike looks wide and high whereas the distance between the tyre and rear seat confirms extended suspension travel on the brand’s latest adventure motorcycle. Moreover, the 390 Adventure has got an ample amount of ground clearance, which stands at 200mm. The seat height of the motorcycle is 855mm whereas the fuel tank capacity is 14.5-litres.

Like the 390 Duke, the KTM 390 Adventure is also equipped with an all-digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity. In terms of braking, the motorcycle is equipped with a 320mm front disc brake and a 230mm rear disc brake, which are further mated to a disengageable Bosch 9M+ dual-channel ABS unit. The suspension travel stands at 170mm for the front wheel and 177mm for the rear wheel.

Coming to the pricing, the KTM 390 Adventure is expected to cost around INR 30,000 to INR 40,000 more than the 390 Duke, making it an INR 2.80-2.90 lakh motorcycle, which means it would still cost less than its nearest rival, the BMW G310GS, which is priced at INR 3.49 lakh (ex-showroom). KTM 390 Adventure will launch with BSVI-compliant engine, and the same updated engine will also make its way into the 390 Duke and the RC 390 in the coming months.

Honda has officially unveiled the CB4X concept motorcycle at the EICMA 2019. The crossover between a sports motorcycle and a tourer, the concept has been specifically designed under the ‘fun seven days a week’ theme, perfect for the riders looking for sports touring without giving up the ideas of relaxed commuting.

The Honda CB4X concept features the urban touring capabilities which is perfect to drive all seven days in a week no matter if you are commuting or planning a trip to the mountains. The concept has been powerfully penned by Honda’s designer, Valerio Aiello, in collaboration with his team. Powering the concept motorcycle is an inline four-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine.

Coming to the design language, the CB4X concept features a unique fuel tank design, hunching towards the front while the windscreen is fully adjustable and well-integrated. The motorcycle features a diamond headlight setup up front, mated to LED DRLs. The single-seat setup further adds to its aggressive stance while the sharper rear adds to its unique persona. The use of 17-inch tyres at the front offers the crossover utmost stability on every terrain.

One can expect the brand to base the Honda CB4X concept on the same CBR650 engine offered to its other surprise concepts unveiled at the earlier events. The brand is yet to disclose other details of their splendid concept motorcycle though if brought to reality, the Honda CB4X will give a tough competition to the likes of Ducati’s Multistrada and BMW’s XR in the motorcycle segment. Here is the official press release for the Honda CB4X Concept motorcycle:

Honda’s Rome R&D Centre proudly unleashes the CB4X at EICMA

For the fifth successive year, Honda will use the ‘Design Studio’ area of its EICMA stand as the backdrop to showcase something totally new – in this case, the bold CB4X Concept.

The experimental machine – developed under the theme of ‘fun seven days a week’ – blends elements of Sport and Touring with a healthy dash of Crossover. It’s a design from the imaginative pen of Valerio Aiello, and his team of young designers, and is born from the desire to explore – and push – existing boundaries.

The CB4X features dynamic, yet compact lines, engineered to enhance the contrasting personality of a motorcycle that’s born to use every day on urban routes, but with which a rider can have fun on weekends carving mountain bends or devouring long journeys.

Its engine is a classic inline four-cylinder powerplant – the essential signature of the Honda Wing. The fuel tank hunches forward, like a cobra ready to attack its prey, while the screen is fully adjustable and integrates into the fairing. And the headlight is set like a diamond, injecting aggressive sophistication alongside the Daytime Running Lights (DRL). A beautiful aluminium subframe underpins the short, sharp tail while the 17-inch front wheel maximises steering precision.

The Honda CB4X is an idea dedicated to those riders who live for sports riding – but don’t want to give up the possibility of relaxing, two-up travel experiences whenever or wherever.

The 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 has been recently unveiled by the brand ahead of the EICMA 2019. The retro-modern bike gets a price tag of 19,900 euros (approx INR 15.66 lakh), which is far more affordable when compared to the Superveloce 800 Serie Oro that made its debut at the EICMA last year.

Commenting on the launch of the Superveloce 800, the officials said: “Superveloce 800 Serie Oro and Superveloce 800 bring MV Agusta’s timeless fascination to the roads, with their intoxicating curves, classic and contemporary at the same time. The engine and the chassis are the pinnacles of engineering that positions the Superveloce 800 among the most fascinating and dynamic sports bikes on the scene.”

Coming to the splendid design language, the 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800 is equipped with almost identical features as its limited-edition Serie Oro variant though the wire-spoke wheels, as well as the twin-pod exhaust unit, has been left out. Instead, the brand has equipped the motorcycle with three-pod exhaust unit borrowed from the F3 800 in addition to an alloy wheel setup.

The brand has equipped the motorcycle with a split seat setup in contrast to the single-seat saddle offered to the limited-edition variant. The rear seat setup of the motorcycle mimics the rear cowl for a rather unique look. The fuel tank of the motorcycle has also been tweaked and now features a flush-type filler cap. The rear tyre hugger of the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 has been further equipped with number plate as well as the blinkers.

The retro-inspired round LED setup in addition to the body-coloured windscreen has been retained for the 2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800. The customers can avail the motorcycle in Ago Red/Dark Metallic Matt Grey and Ice Pearl White/Dark Metallic Matt Grey/Ago Red colour options.

Powering the motorcycle is a 798cc liquid-cooled, three-cylinder, 12-valve engine that is capable of generating a maximum power figure of 148HP @ 13,000 rpm and a peak torque of 88Nm @ 10,900 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with MV EAS 2.0 (Electronically Assisted Shift up & down) quick-shifter.

Staying true to its promise to unveil a custom motorcycle at the EICMA 2019, Royal Enfield has officially revealed the Twin FT 750 at the auto show. Based on the RE 650 Twins, the all-new Flat Tracker has been specifically designed in association with Harris Performance, UK. Though rather uncertain, if the brand plans on bringing the custom project into reality, the flat tracker can help it compete in the US racing market that is currently being dominated by Harley-Davidson.

Based on a brazed steel tube chassis, the design language of the motorcycle complements the old school charm offered to it. With an adjustable swingarm as well as the steering angle and yokes, the motorcycle can be brought to utmost stability while riding.

Coming to the other custom motorcycle components, the Harris Performance has equipped the Royal Enfield Twin FT 750 with 41mm USD forks from Ohlins at the front while the rear has been equipped with high-end Ohlins TTX36 monoshock suspension. Adding to the aesthetics are the 19-inch RSD traction rims, equipped at either side of the custom-made motorcycle.

The braking duties on the motorcycle have been kept authentic with a single disc brake with Brembo callipers at the rear while the front disc brake has been given a miss. The 647cc, twin-cylinder, air-cooled engine borrowed from the 650 twins powers the Twin FT though the brand has offered the motorcycle with a 750cc bore kit which adds to its unique racing capabilities.

The carbon fibre detailing adds to its premium stance while the brand has equipped the custom motorcycle with an S&S exhaust system. Though the brand has not yet disclosed its plans to bring out the road-inspired variant of the Royal Enfield Twin FT 750, one can expect it to be a huge hit if and when launched in India.

The Japanese conglomerate Honda has officially revealed the 2020 variants of its entry-level cruisers, Honda Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 at the public appearance eve of the EICMA 2019. Both the motorcycles have been adorned with a host of new updates making them stand apart from their last-gen variants while improving the functionality and riding statistics to offer a better ownership experience.

Coming to the front fascia, both the Honda motorcycles now feature an LED headlight set up. The all-new headlight cluster is now more aligned towards the handlebar while the parallel LED units placed inside adds to its modern outlook. In terms of the rear tail light, the brand has also fabricated it to a rather smaller unit while all the four turn indicators now feature a retro round design.

2020 Honda Rebel 500
2020 Honda Rebel 500

The single-seat saddle offered to the 2020 Honda Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 now features extra padding and is much thicker for additional comfort while the seat height remains the same at 690mm. The LCD instrument console seen on the previous-gen models has also been updated to display the fuel consumption stats in addition to displaying the gear position. The fatter tyres at either end have been retained for both the 2020 Honda Rebel 300 and Rebel 500.

Powering the 2020 Honda Rebel 500 is the same 471cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine while the 286cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine for the 2020 model of the Rebel 300 has also been retained. Both the engines continue to be mated with a 6-speed transmission. The new slipper and assist clutch offered to both the motorcycle variants reduces the effort required at the clutch lever by a whole 30% in addition to improving the riding ergonomics.

The suspension setup continues to be equipped with the same 41mm non-adjustable forks at the front though tweaked to offer new internal buffing and oil level for smoother riding. The rear of the motorcycles features the same spring-preload adjustable shocks.

Both the motorcycles have been equipped with Euro-5 compliant engines. The 2020 Honda Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 are expected to hit the US market sometime in the next year though, there is no official confirmation on their availability in the Indian markets as of yet.

The much-awaited 2020 Benelli TNT600 has been officially revealed by the brand ahead of the EICMA 2019. The production variant of the most-anticipated motorcycle is nothing like the earlier leaked prototypes. The brand has only offered some minor updates to the sports machine when compared to its existing variant while major comprehensive changes have been given a miss.

Taking a little design inspiration from the leaked prototypes, the brand has finally equipped the motorcycle with an LED headlamp in addition to offering an LCD instrument console. The brand has further equipped the 2020 model of the Benelli TNT600 with a split seat setup which has replaced the single-seat setup spotted in the leaked prototypes.

The headlamp cluster is now exposed while the addition of new tank extensions adds to its exclusivity. The white and black colour scheme offered to the sports motorcycle is now different from the yellow prototype though, it is worth grabbing attention on the road. In addition to the displayed colour variant, the brand will also be offering the all-new Benelli motorcycle in green colour.

Powering the 2020 Benelli TNT600 is the same 600cc, inline 4-cylinder, DOHC engine that is capable of generating a maximum power figure of 81.6HP @ 11,500 rpm and a peak torque of 51Nm @ 10,500 rpm. The motorcycle has been equipped with a BS6-compliant engine to cater the new emission norms to be implemented in the country before April 1, 2020, thus the slight decrease in power and torque output is justifiable when compared to the output offered by the current-gen variant.

The motorcycle features 50mm inverted forks at the front while the rear has been equipped with a monoshock unit. The kerb weight of the motorcycle has increased by 3kgs and now stands at 234kg. One can expect the brand to officially launch the 2020 Benelli TNT600 in the Indian market soon while the price tag will be revealed at the time of the launch itself.

Honda has officially revealed the CBR1000RR-R and CBR1000RR-R SP track-focused superbikes that are by far the most technology-advanced motorcycles to be ever realised by the Japanese brand. Specifically designed with the help of HRC (Honda Racing Corporation), the brand promises the all-new Fireblade variants to be born for redefining racing itself.

Taking inspiration from the aerodynamics package of the Honda RC213V, the all-new Honda CBR1000RR-R is equipped with a more powerful Euro5-compliant 999.9cc 4-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. The superbike is now capable of generating a maximum power figure of 214HP @ 14,500 rpm and a peak torque of 113Nm @ 12,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The kerb weight of the all-new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade stands at 202.1kgs while the SP variant tips the scale at 201.3kgs. The aerodynamic winglets offered to the motorcycle specifically increases the downforce and improves the braking power.

The motorcycle has been further equipped with a full-colour TFT display adding to its superiority while the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) offered to the Fireblade allows gaining the slip rate control. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with three riding modes in addition to allowing the rider to customize the power and brakes.

Coming to the SP variant of the Honda CBR1000RR-R, the motorcycle has been offered second-gen 43mm front forks by Ohlins in addition to getting extra Brembo callipers to make it more track-focused in comparison to the standard variant. The rear of the motorcycle has been equipped with Ohlins TTX36 Smart-EC monoshock unit. The braking duties on the motorcycle are handled by Brembo Stylema four-piston radial callipers at the front while the brand had equipped the rear with Brembo monoblock calliper borrowed from the Honda RC213V-S.

The brand is offering the Honda CBR1000RR-R and SP in Grand Prix Red and Matte Pearl Black colour variants, both equipped with a titanium Akrapovic exhaust as standard. If and when launched in India, the motorcycles will feature a BS6-compliant engine, catering to the new emission norms. The pricing and availability details of the motorcycles are still to be unveiled by the brand in the coming days.
