Motoroyale is starting the local assembly for the FB Mondial HPS 300 from today in India. It carries a lot of significance for the newcomer as the company has already gathered more than 100 bookings for the motorcycle. The HPS 300 carries INR 3.37 lakh ex-showroom price tag, all thanks to the CKD route and huge taxation on part imports.

Kinetic will manage every official operation for the brand as assembly is also planned to start at the Ahmednagar facility. The seven store presence of Motoroyale will expand to 20 stores by the end of 2019. FB Mondial expect the deliveries of Hipster 300 to start in India from December 16.

The FB Mondial HPS 300 comes with a 249cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 25 HP of maximum power at 9000 rpm and 22 Nm of torque at 7000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The direct rival to KTM 250 Duke, HPS feels expensive as the same price tag could buy one KTM 250 Duke and save a lot more money for another motorcycle. Still, the only reason to consider FB Mondial HPS will be the brand value and exclusivity associated with the brand and its motorcycle.

Apache RR 310 vs BMW G310R: BMW-Motorrad recently launched the much-awaited G310R in India for INR 2.99 lakh, leaving everyone in a state of confusion since the launch event for the pricing part. TVS Apache RR 310 comes with a price tag of INR 2.23 lakh in Delhi, INR 2.13 lakh in Mumbai and INR 1,99,999 in Cochin. The difference in prices (INR 1 lakh approx) make both the bikes good for two different segments of buyers, one of which will run for practicality and other for the brand name. The difference in the list of components is smaller than the price charged for switching one into the other.

BMW G310R is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 34 HP and 28 Nm of torque. On the other hand, Apache RR 310 produces the same horsepower but, gets a reduction in torque by 0.7Nm. The full faired Apache is heavier by 11kg, all thanks to added equipment and fairing on the motorcycle. BMW G310R comes with a different instrument console and also brings standard handlebar and seating into action. Apache RR310 comes with clip-on handlebar and split seat for a sportier feel. Both the bikes are available with an identical frame, fuel tank, brakes and suspension components.

TVS offers bi-LED headlights on the Apache, making it more practical in comparison to the halogen headlight on the G310R. Apache RR 310 brings better top speed, lower 0-100 kph number and similar mileage figure to the BMW roadster. Both the bikes are available with 110mm front and 150mm rear tires, wrapped around similar alloy wheel design. They even share the exhaust with each other. TVS Apache RR 310 is a far better option if buyers are not concerned about the brand value associated with their motorcycle, saving a lot of money and still bringing more fun into your life.

Thunderbird X Accessories Price List: Royal Enfield recently launched the ABS model of Thunderbird 350X and 500X in India with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.63 lakh and INR 2.13 lakh respectively. At the time of initial launch, the brand even showcased an accessory loaded model with backrest, windscreen and crash guard. Although, the use of backrest makes this variant feel a bit out of proportion as it was placed as an alternative to standard version.

Thunderbird X series comes with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres for the first time on a Royal Enfield. This makes the motorcycle good for lesser chances of flat outs during tough terrains. Also, they have used colorful fuel tank options to create that typical bobber feel with black front and rear fenders.

The engines used on both these bikes are sourced from standard variants while buyers get all black exhaust and suspension components as an addition over regular trims. Royal Enfield has officially listed the accessory range for Thunderbird X on their official website. Here is an accessory wise price list for both models.

EIMOR Customs is back with Royal Enfield Harpe, a premium handcrafted motorcycle based on a 2013 Thunderbird. The basic profile is based on a Scrambler but they went few steps forward and highlighted elements with their iconic style. The fuel tank is painted in a rugged black & copper finish to complement the body type. The custom unit is carrying the same finish as the engine casing and seat cover. Even the handlebar grips and other exclusive details match each other for a perfect symmetry. The exhaust used here is all back, highlighted through the chrome end section and heat insulation tape.

The front headlight is also carrying a color-coordinated ring in place of the chrome highlight. The seat is flat and single piece, looking premium with its diamond quilted finish and leather cover. The leg protector is fitted with old school fog lamps for added utility. The modification of side panels resulted in exposed air filter and other parts on the motorcycle. The panel on the left side is handmade, carrying black finish to complement the suspension components. The front and rear wheel now comes painted black while disc brakes are kept stock for efficient braking. The calipers are also painted in the same shade as the fuel tank.

The front and rear fenders are now chopped, saving a lot in terms of weight on the Royal Enfield Harpe. The front and rear tyre now flaunt thick treads to take on any terrain that comes in the way. The single projector headlight of the stock model has been replaced with a dual projector unit with daytime running lights. The stock instrument console has also been replaced with a unique set of an analog speedometer and a fuel gauge for some retro appeal. The handlebar comes with bar end indicators while the fuel tank cap and other important highlights feature engraved EIMOR Customs branding. The rear number plate holder is also all new, looking perfect on the Scrambler profile.

Yamaha FZS V2 is available in multiple variants, starting with a single disc variant at INR 83,542. Spending INR 1,000 over this price (INR 84,542) brings single disc Darknight variant, finished in dual tone matt and gloss shade. The rear disc variant in Armada Blue costs INR 86,542 while Darknight and Matt Green can be bought for INR 87,542 (ex-showroom). If you are not that concerned about the shade options, the rear disc variant will cost you INR 3,000 over the single disc version. Here are the pros and cons for Yamaha FZS Fi V2.

Yamaha FZS Fi V2 Pros & Cons

List of Pros of FZS V2

1) Build Quality

The built quality of Yamaha FZ-S is the biggest positive factor for long term owners. The paint and parts quality speaks for itself, staying fresh will a decent amount of care from the buyer. The fit and finish feels premium while dedicated locks stay tight, even after an average rider’s complete calendar year.

2) Impressive Mileage

Yamaha FZ-S is using a 149cc engine, returning more than 40 kmpl of mileage in tough city conditions and around 50 kmpl on the highway. The topmost figure is achieved when riding between 70-80 kph while city riding includes stop-go riding and maximum use of first three or four gears.

3) Superb Handling

The suspension and frame setup of FZS is excellent, allowing the rider to make sharp turns and change directions with ease. Also, the tyre size of 140mm at the rear means exceptional grip levels, especially after riding the motorcycle for a few kilometers at average speeds. The complete package is worth praising.

4) Refined Engine

The 149cc engine comes with blue-core technology, refining the engine for optimum city performance and keeping mileage levels up at all times. The refined engine allows the rider to enjoy around 40 kph of speed in the top gear for tight traffic conditions. The same gear can take you to 120 kph of top speed (speedometer indicated) on the highway.

5) Excellent Design

The massive fuel tank with proportional extensions, raised rear seat and sharp headlight makes a perfect combination for style-stuffed presence. The wheelbase is compact while the handlebar stays within reach for an average built rider. The combination of dual tone shade with these features look awesome.

List of Cons of Yamaha FZS V2

1) No ABS

Yamaha is yet to introduce ABS on every local production model, with FZ being the first to get the additional safety feature in the coming months. The price hike is conditional as brands are charging different prices.

2) Underpowered

The low weight is a positive feature for city use but maximum power and torque of just 13.2 PS and 12.8 Nm means weak top end performance. The bike struggles to reach 100 kph when riding with a pillion and top speed is achieved with a lot of struggle.

3) Headlight Quality

The illumination offered by the basic halogen headlight is poor in comparison to other bikes of this segment. The throw is lower than decent and one may need to switch to a more powerful bulb in order to get better night riding quality.

4) Basic Console

The console offer basic values like odometer reading, tripmeter, speed, fuel gauge and tachometer reading. The missing digital clock, engine temperature and other reading makes it basic among other rivals. Some consoles even have 0-100 kph recorders in this price range.

Royal Enfield Classic 500 Scrambler was spotted testing with a red number plate in Tamil Nadu. The motorcycle was earlier seen testing with most parts hidden under the covers. The first images in action clear the fact that ground clearance is improved considerably in comparison to a standard 500cc RE. The handlebar position also seems highly rider-friendly with wide grips and a raised bar. The tyres at both ends are dual purpose units with decent amount of width and 19-inch steel spoke rims.

The rear section is seen with a raised exhaust, more or less similar to the stock unit in design but placed much higher for safe all-terrain riding. Riders using Classic 500 or Bullet 500 have already climbed record heights with stock ground clearance of 135mm and imagining Classic 500 Scrambler going further heights won’t be wrong at all. The successful platform that underpins the 350cc and 500cc models can bring better sales for the brand through the Scrambler variant than the Himalayan.
