BMW G310RR was recently seen through a couple of images from Japan. Every motorcycle fan around the globe knew that this would happen one day as the German manufacturer currently retails three body styles for every engine and frame combination in its international lineup. The G310RR sportbike is expected to get an official debut at INTERMOT 2018 or EICMA 2018, most probably getting placed between both the currently available bikes in India. The adventure variant uses the most equipment of all and thus, getting placed on top of the roadster and full-faired sportbike. BMW G310RR will rival Kawasaki Ninja 300, Yamaha YZF-R3 and KTM RC390 in India.

The upcoming motorcycle is based on the same frame as all three existing products, including the TVS Apache RR310. The version seen here is loaded with carbon fiber parts, taking viewers on a journey into the past when TVS Akula was seen with carbon fiber before its official launch. One amazing feature seen here is the under-seat exhaust system, looking perfectly placed, but, not so fancy for the production version. Being a single cylinder bike, the muffler may not look as perfect as seen on bikes with dual units. Also, concepts have the freedom to show anything but, production mules prefer practicality over other features.

The front fairing is based on typical sportbike design, highly inspired from their own liter class products and getting a bigger than usual visor for wind protection. The seat is flat, and rear gets a lightweight carbon fiber cowl. The components used here are mostly shared with G310R, and thus, one can expect a slight increase in price for the production version. The addition includes clip-on bars, dual headlight, and side fairing. BMW G310RR will be powered by a 312cc, single-cylinder engine, producing 34 hp of power and 28 Nm of torque. The engine will use a 6-speed gearbox. The upcoming full-faired sport bike is expected to be priced around INR 3.30 lakh (ex-showroom).

It is being rumored that Honda Motorcycles India is working on a new Full-Faired CB Hornet 160R that may launch in India in 2019. What you see here is a very neat rendered image of the upcoming bike and the final production model could look pretty close to this image.

At present, Suzuki Gixxer SF is the most-affordable full-faired bike in India priced around INR 90,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). Gixxer SF is based on the naked Gixxer 155 and Honda wants to repeat the same success story by bringing an affordable full-faired sport bike priced around Rs 95,000 (ex-showroom).

Full-Faired CB Hornet sport bike is expected to be powered by the same 162.71cc single-cylinder engine, which generates maximum power of 14.90 BHP @ 8500 rpm and develops maximum torque of 14.50 Nm @ 6500 rpm. The engine would be mated to a 5-speed transmission.

Honda’s Full-Faired CB Hornet would be equipped with the same all-digital instrument console as seen on the CB Hornet 160R. Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India recently launched the updated models of CBR250R and CB Hornet in India. Both bikes are now available with optional ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) in India.

Honda also introduced new shades for both the bikes and they are now equipped with All-LED headlight. Yamaha recently launched the latest R15 V3 in India but Honda has still not launched the much-awaited New CBR150R in India. Honda fans will get disappointed if they miss out on this important product for the Indian market.

As sales for higher capacity motorcycles are rising day by day, absence of Honda from INR 90,000 to INR 1.50 lakh price bracket is raising a huge number of questions among die-hard fans. We hope Honda will launch the full-faired CB Hornet and new CBR150R in India within next 6-10 months.

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India recently updated their official website. The changes of the same includes the removal of Honda CBR150R and CBR250R from the lineup. As of now, it not clear whether Honda would be updating the old models to BS4 or they would be bringing the 2017 models of CBR150R and CBR250R to India in coming weeks. Some rumors also suggest that Honda might even replace the CBR250R with CBR300R in India.

As per the latest details available, Honda might not bring any new CBR to India and would be updating the old CBR150R and CBR250R with BS4 engine and AHO (Auto Headlamp On). The updated models will be available in new shades with new stickers. If this happens, then it would a huge disappointment for the Honda fans in India as they are expecting Honda to bring the updated CBR models in India, which are already on-sale outside India from past 2-3 years.
