MV Agusta and Loncin Motorcycles announced their partnership in July 2019 and now the brands have promised to introduce sub-500cc motorcycles in the Indian market. According to the recent reports, the brands will be unveiling their first product in the said category by the end of the year 2020 or in early 2021.

Kinetic Motoroyale is responsible for offering MV Agusta motorcycles in the country while one can expect the new motorcycles to be available via the same dealerships. The reports suggest that the MV Agusta-Loncin treaty will be churning out four new motorcycle variants in India though it is not yet confirmed whether they will be assembled locally or not.

The partnership treaty between the two brands will be offering new motorcycles in the supersport, naked streetfighter, adventure tourer, and neo-retro portfolio. The reports suggest that the upcoming small capacity motorcycles will feature the design dynamics borrowed from the rich MV Agusta’s history while at the same time will feature unique sound characteristics and mechanical configurations.

The partnership between the two brands will offer motorcycles starting from 300cc displacement, going all the way up to 500cc engine capacity. The brand will be pricing the motorcycles competitively while all the four upcoming products will get a subsequent premium over the existing motorcycles in this segment.

The recent buzz suggests that the production part of the upcoming motorcycles will be taken care of by Loncin while MV Agusta will be responsible for development. The partnership between the Italian and Chinese brand will focus on bringing out an exclusive and efficiently engineered range of motorcycles for the audience. The same route has been taken by TVS and BMW-Motorrad partnership.

MV Agusta recently launched its much-awaited Turismo Veloce 800 in India. The brand is offering only the standard variant of the motorcycle in India while the customers in the international markets can avail the Veloce 800 in three other variants apart from the standard one.

Yamaha XSR155 Top Speed Video by Motobigbike Thailand: Yamaha just recently launched the exclusive XSR155 in the Thai market and now a video has been spotted touring the internet in which an individual rides the retro motorcycle and take it straight up to its maximum possible top speed.

As per the speculations, the XSR155 was expected to achieve a top speed of 135 km/hr, but in the video, the biker is able to achieve a top speed of only 125km/hr. The XSR155 is a retro-modern motorcycle and it is a new addition to the already existing XSR line-up with models like XSR700 and XSR900.

Yamaha XSR155 Top Speed Video

It is worth noting that the XSR155 shares a lot of specifications with the Yamaha R15 V3 and is equally capable. The motorcycle is equipped with a 155cc liquid-cooled engine and the triple-digit top speed figure in the video gives a clear view of how capable the motorcycle is in comparison to its rivals.

The biker in the video rides the Yamaha XSR155 and is able to take the bike up to 125km/hr only, which is an unusual thing, considering the fact that it is powered by the R15 V3’s engine, which can easily achieve 135+ kmph of top speed.

On digging deep into the scenario to find the reason, we found out that although the bike has the same powertrain as that of the R15 V3, the XSR155 lacks a fairing. The role of fairing in the R15 V3 is to help it cut through the air in an efficient manner, which further reduces the drag and allows the bike to ride faster with minimum air resistance. With a naked design, the Yamaha XSR155 is unable to provide an aerodynamic efficiency, which as a result affects the top speed of the bike.

The Yamaha XSR155 is powered by a 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine which has been teamed with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). The motorcycle generates a maximum power of 19 HP and a peak torque of 14.7 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. You can easily differentiate the XSR155 from the R15 V3 and MT-15 due to its retro styling.

The product has been launched in Thailand at a price tag of 91,500 Baht (INR 2,13,900 approx), while the XSR155 is expected to launch in India by the end of this year or at the Auto Expo in February 2020 with an ex-showroom price tag of around INT 1.50 lakh.

The Apache RTR 160 4V is equipped with a petal disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear, with an option of a disc brake in top-spec variants. There has been no confirmation of the official launch of the 2020 model as of yet though one can expect the brand to roll out its BS6 series post-October 2019.

Triumph has officially unveiled the Daytona 765 Moto2 limited-edition motorcycle. The production model of the motorcycle was unveiled at a press conference at the GoPro British Grand Prix at Silverstone, England at a price tag of GBP 15,765 (approx Rs 13.83 lakh).

The production-spec variants of Harley-Davidson’s new range of motorcycles christened as Pan America and Streetfighter have been spotted for the first time. Both the motorcycles were initially unveiled to the world officially by the brand via a digital video and some rendered images.

The brand plans to expand its reach in the motorcycle segment with the addition of two new motorcycles specifically made to attract younger buyers. One can expect the brand to officially launch both the new Harley-Davidson motorcycles at the EICMA in November 2019.

Harley-Davidson Streetfighter

The motorcycles have been made official to the audience at a trade show organized by the brand for displaying the after-market parts of its motorcycle portfolio. Both the motorcycles featured at the show have been offered a different styling language.

The Harley-Davison Pan America has been offered a touring profile language while the Streetfighter gets an aggressive styling. The Harley-Davidson Pan America revealed at the trade show features the same styling identical to the previously revealed prototype. Though the orange and black colour scheme looks rather intriguing when compared to the black and grey paint scheme revealed earlier.
