650cc Royal Enfield Twins can easily cross the 160 kph barrier, making them the most powerful machine ever built by the brand in India. The value equates to a top speed in excess of 100 mph for countries where the units are different than the Indian system. The values, along with the claimed WMTC mileage figure of 25.5 kmpl, were made official by Royal Enfield itself. The 648cc, twin-cylinder engine claims 80% of the available torque at 2500 rpm, leaving riders with more than 40 Nm of torque before even crouching and twisting the throttle hard on a highway.

A recent report by BikeAdvice hints that Suzuki Gixxer 250 is the next big thing from the Japanese brand, awaiting the official debut in India on May 20, 2019. The only question that remains is the list of equipment on offer as the motorcycling community is divided into two different thought schools. The first view believes that Suzuki will rival the popular Yamaha FZ25 and will launch a stunning quarter-litre streetfighter with features like fuel injection, oil cooler, and 2-channel ABS. On the other side, some of the Suzuki fans are expecting the brand to launch a premium motorcycle that rivals KTM 250 Duke and offers liquid cooled engine, wide tyres, 6-speed gearbox, and USD front forks.

Suzuki Gixxer 250 Expected to be Based on Haojue DR300

The same variant will give birth to a faired version, rivalling options like Apache RR310 and Honda CBR250R in its segment (if liquid cooled) or Yamaha Fazer 25 with oil cooling. The design inspiration for the upcoming Gixxer 250 will come from the Haojue DR300 as it is the most recent design seen for a performance-spec naked in the global market. You can know more about the DR300 here. Haojue is Suzuki’s local partner for the Chinese market. The motorcycle can share exactly the same design if Suzuki has no plans to bring the twin-cylinder performance motorcycle to India. Most parts will be shared with the younger Gixxer if planned rival stays Yamaha FZ25 in the country.

On the other hand, a completely new frame and body, with performance-friendly USD front forks can arrive if Suzuki plans to focus more on brand image than the sales chart. The only feature that will arrive for sure is fuel injection and thus, pricing the motorcycle under INR 1.40 lakh is only possible with an oil-cooled unit. The brand will need to skip the premium features for this placement or otherwise, the next rival would be the KTM Duke 250, priced at INR 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom, with ABS). The current generation Suzuki lineup is available with just 150cc options before jumping to the big bikes section.

New 350cc-700cc+ Royal Enfield Motorcycles in the Making: A recent report claims that Royal Enfield is working on a brand-new strategy to take competition right to the doorsteps of Harley-Davidson and Triumph Motorcycles. They are dividing the product range into the J, P, Q, and K platform.

The J segment will handle the most-selling 350cc-500cc single cylinder platform, waiting for a complete overhaul from last few years. Royal Enfield is expected to launch an updated version of 346cc and 499cc bikes with modern technology and redesign of certain elements, same as Harley did with most of the bikes in their lineup. The exact time-frame for this change is not available but, test mules with modern technology were recently spotted in India (Know More).

The codename P fits both Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650, leaving buyers with an option of twin-cylinder large displacement in the price segment of a sporty 300cc bike. Platform Q is expected to rival entry-level Harley bikes like Street 750 and Street Rod. The comparison will require a tuned version of their present engine or something bigger with more emphasis on torque than peak power.

Still, undercutting these Street series bikes by INR 1 lakh will be their preference. No example from this segment has been spotted till date from the brand while many reports hint that a more purpose-built motorcycle on the Interceptor frame will do the needful.

The K platform is expected to rival premium Bonneville series from Triumph, using a 700cc+ engine (most probably closer to 900cc for right competition) and set of premium components. The price range for this motorcycle is expected to fall in line with present Harley entry level bikes, offering more torque to ensure that buyers don’t give them a miss. The RE Bobber 838 fits this description with ease. Royal Enfield is currently retailing 346cc, 411cc, 499cc, and 650cc engines in India.

2019 Yamaha R3 is now official, flaunting impressive design upgrades and improved equipment for dedicated riders. The motorcycle comes with slim twin headlight design with more effective LED illumination and R15 V3 inspired faux air intake in the middle. The front fairing is now more in line with flagship R1, offering enough space for the rider to hide behind during quick straight road sprints.

The front section uses 37mm KYB USD forks for better handling while fuel tank retains its original shape for the perfect R-series feel. However, the fins are now seen on the top front side of R3’s fuel tank. As per the latest details available, Yamaha will launch the 2019 R3 in India by the end of this year.

The side fairing is more linear now, leaving no empty see-through space as one can witness in the old generation model. The upper side of the fairing supports R moniker while the lower half stays black and holds the Yamaha branding.

Overall, the fairing is totally different from the one seen on present generation R3 in India. Another big upgrade is the new all-digital instrument console, offering white back-lit TFT with features like gear indicator, engine heat level, and digital clock. The clip-on bars now bring sporty riding position while the rear half stays identical to the older version.

Yamaha R3 still uses the 321cc, twin-cylinder engine, producing 42PS at 10,750 rpm and 29.6 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It weighs 169 kg with 14-liters of fuel in the tank and all fluids included. The brakes remain similar to the one seen on the Indian version, carrying ABS as standard for the markets where the safety feature is mandatory.

Bajaj Pulsar RS400 to Get New Dominar’s Engine: Bajaj Auto is here with a new 373.3cc DOHC engine that uses triple spark technology, in house developed ECU and different gearing than the one seen on the last-gen Dominar. The updated engine is performing under the 2019 Dominar nameplate and brings almost 40 HP of maximum power. Bajaj Auto is losing a big share from the commuter-centric market and they are preparing to gain almost 3-4% from the Indian market through a different level of products in the coming months.

Bajaj Pulsar RS400

Bajaj Pulsar RS400, the worthy performance upgrade to RS200, has the highest chances of getting this new powertrain as Avenger 400 would not be tuned to a higher spec version than Dominar 400. The trend has been always visible among Bajaj Pulsar 220F and Avenger 220 Cruise.

If Bajaj doesn’t want TVS to enjoy a chunk of premium bike sale through the Apache RR 310, a product like Pulsar RS400 is the best bet within this segment. Presently, Dominar 400 is the flagship product for Bajaj Auto. The 2019 model of Dominar is expected to be priced around INR 1.80 lakh while the Pulsar RS400 could arrive at around INR 2 lakh. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom.

Being a worthy product, the Dominar still could not eat into the huge 50,000+ units monthly sales figure of Royal Enfield Classic 350. The on-road price tag of around INR 1.80 lakh is the benchmark for five digit sales as no other product around this price tag (except RE Bullet) has entered the five-digit club.

The entry of the Pulsar RS400 will again ignite the hope of Bajaj Auto for getting some share out of this future friendly performance sports bike segment. Bajaj unveiled the Pulsar SS400 concept in 2014 but unfortunately, it didn’t make into production. Let’s hope Bajaj launches the Pulsar RS400 this year to compete with the likes of TVS Apache RR 310 and the Honda CBR250R.

2019 Harley-Davidson 48 Special has been launched in the country for INR 10.98 lakh. The price tag is applicable to the vivid black shade as the most expensive custom shade variant costs INR 11.52 lakh. Both the prices are ex-showroom and remains the same all over India. The first difference that die-hard Harley fans will notice is the use of ape-hanger handlebar on the model while after that, the exhaust cover finish claims the second point.

Not just that, the engine bay now flaunts more chrome than ever on the Special model. The iconic fuel tank stays alive, offering just 7.9-litres of fuel carrying capacity on both the regular as well as Special variant. The price difference between both the models is INR 40,000 and thus, seems justified for these small yet highly visible changes.

The new handlebar will completely change the sitting posture of the rider, making the new Forty-Eight Special more comfortable than the regular model. The beefy tires and single seat attitude of the motorcycle remain intact here. The 1202cc, V-twin engine on the motorcycle is good for 97 Nm at 4250 rpm, clearing the fact that cruising effortlessly over the streets is done in the most stylish possible manner.

The motorcycle weighs 252 kg and comes with 130/90-16 front and 150/80-16 rear tire. The alloy wheel design also remains similar between both the variants. Harley Davidson offers four variants with the same 1202cc engine in the Sportster range while Iron 883 is the only one to bring the 883cc engine to the lineup.

Soon, the brand will launch the Iron 1200 in India and may remove the smaller engine as it is serving under just one model. The launch frame for the same has not yet been disclosed. Along with the New Forty-Eight Special, Harley-Davidson also launched the updated 2019 model of Street Glide Special with a starting price tag of INR 30.53 lakh (ex-showroom).
