According to recent reports, the India-Made Jawa Classic 300 has been revealed in the European markets before its official launch. Sold in India as well as other Asian markets by Mahindra’s Classic Legends, the retro motorcycle will be made available in the Czech Republic, the home European market of the motorcycle later by the end of 2020.

The brand has recently revealed the Jawa Classic 300 that has been developed for the Indian markets in the Czech Republic while the motorcycle features a similar front number plate that is mandatory in the Indian markets only. The motorcycle will be exported to the European cities by the end of this year if all goes according to plan while the Czech Republic will be the first-ever state to receive the cruiser.

The homologation process of the motorcycle to be made available in the European markets has been finally finished by the brand and the Euro-spec cruiser is ready to be exported to the selected cities.

As the motorcycle showcased in the Czech Republic features a front license plate, the European-spec variant might not feature the same as European markets don’t necessarily have it as a mandatory addition. The rest of the cosmetic bits of the India-spec motorcycle will remain the same for sale in the European cities while the brand will be tweaking the internals to comply with the European standards.

The Jawa 300 Classic is expected to be launched in the Czech Republic at a price tag of CZK 1,49,900 (approx INR 4.52 lakhs) which includes the VAT as well. The motorcycle is powered by a 293cc, single-cylinder, DOHC engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 27 HP and a peak torque of 28 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It is the first-ever India-made motorcycle to feature cross-port technology that makes it able to retain its twin exhaust system even with the BS6 upgraded engine.

The fuel tank of the motorcycle has been kept the same while the capacity still stands at 13 litres. The brand has retained the minimal graphic detailing on the body panels on its next-gen version of the motorcycle though, the seat height has been reduced to 690mm further allowing a comfortable ride even to the short riders.

Hero Honda Splendor, the most loved commuter of all time can be seen here in the cruiser guise by Full Throttle Customs (FTC). The modifier has worked extensively on the Splendor as no component other than the engine, alloy wheels, and the suspension looks similar to the stock motorcycle.

The fuel tank has been replaced with a peanut design tank while the seat now flows in a different design in comparison to the thin seat of the stock model. The alloy wheels feature matching pinstripes while the same shade can also be found on handlebar levers and the headlight casing.

The exposed frame of the motorcycle is compensated by the leather bag to some extent but still, the small engine casing is visible through the empty area. The side panels have been replaced with the custom FTC-branded panels while the rear now features a wide tyre and a different fender when compared to the standard version.

The stock model’s dual-pod console has been replaced with a single-pod chrome-finished instrument console while the turn indicators are now different with typical arrow signals in them. The front tyre stays the same as the stock model of the Spendor and thus, the plain pattern comes into action. The bike also retains the front and rear suspension components.

The motorcycle is powered by a 97.2cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, producing maximum power of 8.2HP @ 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 8.05Nm @ 5000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The 109kg motorcycle seems to lose some weight here as the front fender of this modified Splendor has been chopped. According to Full Throttle Customs, the approximate modification cost of this Hero Honda Splendor is INR 60,000. You can contact the modifier for further details and inquiries.

According to recent reports, Benelli has filed patents for two new motorcycles under its portfolio, one of which is the Imperiale 530 that has recently surfaced online. The brand has bigger plans for the year 2020 though, the coronavirus pandemic has indefinitely halted all the necessary operations for the automobile manufacturers.

Judging from the leaked patent image, the Imperiale 530 draws inspiration from its younger sibling Imperiale 400 that is currently available in the Indian markets. The bigger displacement Benelli features a similar retro design language with a round headlight and chrome rearview mirrors.

In addition to this, the fuel tank design of the Imperiale 530 resembles with its 400cc version while the only thing that distinguishes them apart is the addition of a long single-piece seat on the 530cc variant. On the other hand, the Imperiale 400 has been imparted a split-seat setup.

Codenamed as “BJ500”, the Benelli Imperiale 530 has been equipped with an engine capacity of 530cc. Since the Imperiale 400 is powered by a 374cc engine that is capable of offering 21HP of maximum power and 29Nm of peak torque, the power and torque values of the bigger displacement 530cc engine are expected to be a bit higher.

One can expect the Imperiale 530 to offer maximum power between 28HP- 30HP though there isn’t any confirmation received on the same. Easily recognisable additional catalytic converter offered to the motorcycle in the patent image further confirms the upcoming cruiser to be equipped with a BS6-compliant engine.

Though the earlier reports suggested the launch of a new Benelli Imperiale model in July 2020, the ongoing COVID-19 situation has made things rather unsure at the moment. If the brand plans on launching the Imperiale 530 retro cruiser in the Indian markets, it is expected to get a huge fan base.

Not every day you will get to see something as good as Thunderbird Kolos Power Cruiser by JEDI Customs. Based on the popular Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350, the motorcycle you see here carries completely different stance and flaunts huge tyres at both ends.

Keen eyes will even notice a new swing-arm and thus, wheelbase gets extended by a few millimetres automatically. The huge tyres demand a new set of wheels and JEDI Customs has used all-new black-painted spoke units that could support even a superbike-size giant rear tyre.

The headlight used here is completely retro-designed while the suspension components are inspired by the Royal Enfield Bullet 350. Both wheels of this modified Thunderbird 350 are equipped with the standard available set of disc brakes while most of the other components have been fabricated in-house by JEDI Customs.

The huge fuel tank, razor-sharp battery panel, and uniquely designed belly area make Thunderbird Kolos a unique option among other modified Royal Enfield motorcycles by the design house. The divided seat of the stock model has been replaced with an ultra-cushioned single seat with custom backrest. The rear fender has also been specifically made to take the huge rear wheel under control.

Royal Enfield Thunderbird Kolos

The custom handlebar is extra wide and has been placed much lower than the stock option available on the Thunderbird 350. Using custom exhaust unit completes the mod and helps it achieve the unique look of a power cruiser. The last-gen BS4 model of the Thunderbird 350 is powered by a carburettor fed, air-cooled engine, and no changes to the motor have been made by JEDI Customs.

The 346cc, single-cylinder unit on the motorcycle is good for a maximum power of 19.8HP @ 5250 rpm and a peak torque of 28Nm @ 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The Thunderbird Kolos power cruiser also features a custom-finished rear light while the number plate holder has been moved to the left side of the swing-arm. Royal Enfield motorcycles are the most preferred option for customization for their easy dynamics and huge stance. JEDI Customs has even used a racing stripe on the fuel tank to give the Kolos a unique touch in terms of the design.

Benelli Imperiale 400 Price Increased in India: Benelli launched its Imperiale 400 retro cruiser back in October 2019 with a price tag of INR 1.69 lakh (ex-showroom). The company has recently hiked the price of the bike by INR 10,500 in India. Now the Imperiale 400 in its silver colour scheme costs INR 1.79 lakh, while its black colour scheme variant comes priced at INR 1.89 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

The Imperiale 400 rivals the likes of Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Jawa Classic 300. It comes featured with the similar retro-inspired styling with a round headlamp, peanut-shaped fuel tank, dual-pod instrument cluster, split seat, and spoke wheels. The cruiser motorcycle is equipped with an analogue instrument cluster with a small digital unit on the left side. The styling of the bike makes sure that it looks unique and commanding on the road.

The suspension duties of the bike are performed by front telescopic forks and rear dual shock absorbers. Braking of the bike is handled by disc brakes at both ends, with dual-channel ABS as standard. Mechanically, the Benelli Imperiale retro-cruiser is powered by a 374cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 21HP of maximum power along 29Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The price hike of the Imperiale 400 comes just before the transition of BS6 emission norms. It would be interesting to see how much price hike the bike would undergo once the engine is BS6-compliant. The updated model of the bike is expected to launch in April 2020. For reference, RE has recently launched its BS6 Classic 350 that witnessed a price hike of INR 11,000. It now comes priced at INR 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom).

TVS Zeppelin is one of the most anticipated motorcycles from the brand that was initially unveiled as a concept at the Auto Expo 2018. After several delays, the earlier reports suggested the brand to launch the Zeppelin 220 cruiser motorcycle in the year 2020 though there has been no information received on the same.

TVS Motor had officially backed out of the Auto Expo 2020 where the brand usually reveals some of its exciting concepts as well as the anticipated production variants. As per the current status, the launch of the Zeppelin now seems to be rather uncertain.

Some recent reports suggest that the brand might launch the motorcycle around mid-2020 though there has been no official confirmation as of yet. It is also being rumoured that TVS may also shelve the plans of launching the cruiser in the Indian market.

Powering the TVS Zeppelin concept is an RTR 200-inspired 220cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that is good for a maximum power of 20HP @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 18.5Nm @ 7000 rpm. The engine is mated a 5-speed gearbox.

If launched in the production state, the TVS Zeppelin is expected to feature a BS6-compliant engine while offering powerful performance and getting a price tag of around INR 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom).

In terms of looks, the TVS Zeppelin cruiser features a bulkier fuel tank design which is further accompanied by the clip-on handlebars while all other body panels have been equipped with premium plastic cladding.

The brand showcased the Zeppelin 220 cruiser motorcycle with Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) with assist motor and an HD camera back in 2018 though the production variant (if launched) is expected to skip on the rather premium bits to keep the costs under check.

As per a recent report by IAB, the production of the BS6 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 has been commenced and the motorcycle is expected to launch in the coming days. The brand recently also launched the BS6-compliant variants of the Classic 350 and the Himalayan adventure motorcycle. In terms of looks, the BS6 model of the Thunderbird 350 is expected to stay more or less the same in comparison to the BS4 version.

The BS6 Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 will be equipped with a catalytic converter that will be packed inside the canister. In addition to that, the motorcycle will also be equipped with an oxygen sensor to meet the BS6 emission norms which will be implemented in the country on April 1, 2020. At present, no details are available regarding the power and torque figures of the BS6-compliant model though one can expect the motorcycle to generate the same output figures as that of the BS6 Classic 350.

Powering the BS6 RE Classic 350 is a 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 19.1HP @ 5250 rpm and a peak torque of 28Nm @ 4000 rpm. The engine remains mated to a 5-speed transmission.

As per the details available, the BS6 model of the Thunderbird 350 will be more refined and smooth due to the addition of the electronic fuel injection. The brand will be offering the updated version in new colour schemes while the price range is expected to get a hike by around INR 10,000. At present, the BS4 model of the Thunderbird 350 series starts at INR 1.56 lakh (ex-showroom).

Royal Enfield recently also announced that their 500cc motorcycle lineup will be discontinued before the implementation of the BS6 emission norms in the Indian market. To commemorate the 500cc UCE engine, the brand has also launched a limited-edition Classic 500 model that will be available through an online sale on February 10, 2020.
