Royal Enfield is Working on Electric Motorcycles: The revolutionary switch to electric mobility is unstoppable, irrespective of how much the bike enthusiasts dislike it. Every manufacturer is today devoted to offering electrification to its customer base and in the race, Royal Enfield does not want to be left out.

In an interview with ET Auto, the Royal Enfield’s CEO Mr Vinod Dasari has confirmed that the brand has already started working upon its electric motorcycles. He also added that even though there is a downturn in the market, the brand has not reduced the capital infusion for the year. Instead, Royal Enfield is trying to utilise the amount in the development of its new products and it also includes the development process of its electric motorcycles.

He said in his official statement, “I think we have hit the bottom. Given the range of products that will come, it (a double-digit growth rate) is possible. The general economic sentiment has also got to improve. High-end vehicles get hit much worse during downturns. But the minute the sentiment improves, the fastest-growing segment will also be this.”

“Just because there was a downturn, we did not cut down on our capex. I don’t think we’ll spend any more on any large (facility). Most of our capex will go into capability building, new products, electric and other stuff. And it will also go into many small assembly plants around the world”, added Dasari.

Through his statement, it can be concluded that Royal Enfield will be developing new products and electric motorcycles, which will be done by setting up small-scale assembly plants across India. It is being speculated that the company may showcase a fully-electric prototype at the EICMA that will be held in November this year.

200cc Bajaj-Triumph Bike Pricing and Launch Details: Bajaj and Triumph officially announced their partnership at a press conference back in January this year. The resultant collaboration of the brands will churn out motorcycles whose production will be handled by Bajaj while Triumph will be responsible for handling the branding.

As per the official details available, Bajaj and Triumph will be launching an all-new 200cc single-cylinder bike with an ex-showroom price tag of under INR 2 lakh while the motorcycle will start arriving at the dealerships sometime in the year 2022.

It has also been confirmed that all the motorcycles developed under the partnership will be sold under the Triumph brand name while Bajaj will only handle the production at its Chakan plant in Pune. One can further expect the partnership to bring out the motorcycles ranging from 200cc displacement going all the way up to 750cc. Apart from this, the alliance between Bajaj and Triumph will give birth to an all-new motorcycle platform though no official details have been confirmed regarding the same.

200cc Bajaj-Triumph Bike to be Priced Under INR 2 Lakh

Since the motorcycles are expected to be positioned under the Triumph’s “Heritage” range in the brand’s portfolio, one can expect the upcoming motorcycles to be neo-retro cruisers with well-engineered design. The motorcycles developed from the alliance will be distributed in the international markets as well.

There has been no official confirmation on what kind of motorcycle variants will be developed from the partnership though the chances of retro cruisers seem to be quite high. When launched in India, the neo-retro cruisers from Bajaj and Triumph will compete in the market with the likes of brands like Royal Enfield as well as Jawa.

According to recent reports, the Meteor 350 cruiser bike is expected to be launched soon as Royal Enfield has officially resumed the manufacturing operations at its Oragadam plant which is based near Chennai.

The production-ready variant of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 was spotted in its full glory back in March 2020 though the nationwide lockdown to curb the coronavirus was responsible for its never-ending delay.

The Thunderbird 350’s replacement under the brand’s portfolio was expected to be launched in April 2020 but due to the lockdown, the brand had halted all the operations back at its manufacturing units from March 23, 2020, considering the welfare of its employees.

Since the new government guidelines for the current lockdown that were implemented from May 1, 2020, allows the resumption of manufacturing and industrial operations across various parts of the country, it has allowed the Chennai-based manufacturer to speed up the expected launch of the Meteor 350.

The brand has resumed its operations at only its Oragadam plant near Chennai while other two manufacturing units will also resume the operations soon. Considering the new guidelines, the manufacturing plant now includes minimal staff to carry on the operations according to the social distancing norms and guidelines introduced by the government.

The upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will come equipped with a fuel-injected engine complying to the new BS6 emission norms. The motorcycle will get an all-new dual pod instrument console while the front fascia has been adorned with a round halogen headlight unit mated to LED DRLs. The teardrop fuel tank has been taken from the current-gen Thunderbird 350 variant while the split seat setup adds to its authenticity. RE Meteor 350 is expected to be launched in India at a starting price tag of INR 1.68 lakh.

The 250cc KTM RC sportbike is still a dream for many aspiring riders of India. The motorcycle belongs to the most popular RC SuperSport series of KTM and thus, performance runs heavily in each of its body parts. Powered by the same engine as the 250 Duke, RC can successfully bridge the gap between RC 200 and the RC 390. Here are 5 reasons why KTM should launch the New RC 250 in India.

KTM RC250 with under-belly exhaust

5 Reasons Why 250cc KTM RC Should be Launched in India

1) Excellence in Performance: KTM RC250 is powered by a 248.8cc, single-cylinder engine producing 30HP @ 9000 rpm and 24Nm @ 7500 rpm. This makes it the most powerful quarter-litre sports bike for India. Honda CBR250R and Yamaha Fazer 25 are both touring focused, making RC250 the dream option for those who wish for a quarter-litre track racer. KTM RC 250 will also be equipped with 2-channel ABS as standard like the rest of the motorcycles of its class. Suzuki recently also entered the 250cc full-faired segment with the launch of the Gixxer SF 250 at INR 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom).

2) Premium Orange Finish: RC 250 was recently updated in both Indonesia and Malaysia. The bike now comes with the same side exhaust and Orange shade as RC 125 for the European market. This combination of White and Orange is still not available on any variant in India. The same shade can help KTM sell more units for RC series.

3) Locally Manufactured: KTM manufactures the RC 125, RC 200, RC 250 and RC 390 in India. The same is true for all four Duke models. The brand recently also launched the BS6-compliant 125cc RC motorcycle in India and the RC 250 would be most likely the next big thing that could launch in India.

4) Perfect Expected Price Point: As KTM 200 Duke and 250 Duke have a large number of differences, they still have a price difference of approx INR 28,000. When it comes to RC 200 and the RC 250, the only major difference is a bigger engine. KTM can launch the RC 250 for around INR 2.20 lakh in India. This will even maintain a good difference with the RC 390 due to a large number of additions in the flagship racer.

5) Premium Components: KTM RC 250 is equipped with front USD forks, race-spec chassis, side exhaust and same fully-digital console as RC 390. The track-focused frame on the motorcycle offers a very confident riding position and clip-on handlebars for sharp handling. The RC 250 is expected to share almost every part with the RC 200 along with the 2-channel ABS unit.

250cc KTM RC Key Specs

  • Displacement: 248.8 cc
  • Maximum Power: 30 HP @ 9000 rpm
  • Maximum Torque: 24 NM @ 7500 rpm
  • No. of Cylinders: 1
  • No. of Gears: 6
  • Seat Height: 820 mm
  • Ground Clearance: 178.5 mm
  • Fuel Tank Capacity: 10 litres
  • Top Speed: 165 kmph (Approx.)

Husqvarna has recently debuted their motorcycles in the Indian market by the name Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 250. Both the motorcycles are based on the KTM Duke 250. In addition to this, the brand has also revealed its first 200cc streetfighter, the Husqvarna Svartpilen 200 through a set of official photos. According to the reports, the motorcycle is expected to hit the Indian market by the end of 2020.

Based on the underpinnings of KTM Duke 200, the Svartpilen 200 is powered by the same 199.5cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that is capable to offer a maximum power of 25.8HP and a peak torque of 19.5Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The braking duties on the 200c Husqvarna are handled by a 300mm disc brake at the front and a 230mm disc brake at the rear. One can expect the brand to offer the motorcycle with a 2-channel BOSCH ABS as standard.

The suspension bits on the motorcycles also remains identical to the Svartpilen 250 and are catered by 43mm upside telescopic forks at the front while the rear features an adjustable monoshock unit. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with the same round all-digital instrument console identical to the one offered on the 250cc variants.

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 200 features almost identical styling to the Svartpilen 401 though the brand has equipped it with alloy wheels setup as well as MRF tyres to keep the costs under check. The motorcycle also features an under-belly exhaust unit, opposite to the side-mounted exhaust offered on the Svartpilen 401.

Once launched in India, the Husqvarna Svartpilen 200 is expected to undercut the KTM Duke 200 by around INR 10,000, which currently sells in the market at a price tag of INR 1.73 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

One of the most anticipated superbikes from the Austrian brand, the 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R was expected to be showcased at the India Bike Week (IBW 2019) in Goa but surprisingly, KTM showcased the last-gen variant of the 1290 Super Duke R at the event, which probably points towards the uncertainty of the launch of the 2020 variant in the Indian market.

The 1301cc motorcycle was initially debuted at EICMA 2019 in Milan, Italy. Being christened as the “Beast” by the brand, the powerful motorcycle has been adorned with aggressive styling that complements its street naked looks.

Equipped with top-of-line suspension and brakes setup, the 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R features an exclusive electronics package as well as an all-new trellis frame borrowed from the KTM RC8 superbike. The sculpted fuel tank offered to the motorcycle further adds to its muscular looks while the new exhaust unit with downpipes circling the engine box helps in improving the lean angle for better handling on the roads. The use of head-turning 5-spoke alloy wheels completes the overall streetfighter looks of the motorcycle.

The 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke is powered by an updated 1301cc LC8 V-twin engine that is capable to generate a maximum power of 177HP and a peak torque of 140Nm. The engine is Euro-5 compliant and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The forward riding position of the motorcycle has been kept intact while the all-digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity also remains the same.

The braking duties on the beast are handled by twin 320mm disc brakes at the front and a 240mm disc brake at the rear mated to dual-channel Bosch 9.1 MP ABS as standard, including Cornering ABS and Supermoto Mode (disengegable).

The motorcycle features fully adjustable WP Apex USD forks at the front while the rear has been equipped with a monoshock unit. The electronics package offered to the motorcycle features cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring system, multiple riding modes, engine brake control and more.

There has been no official confirmation on the launch of 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R in the Indian market as of yet. In case KTM plans to launch it in India, the INR 15 lakh ex-showroom price tag expected to be offered to the superbike makes it probably less attractive for the audience who can easily get their hands on more premium brands like Kawasaki, Ducati, Aprilia, Triumph and Harley-Davidson in the same price range.

According to recent reports, Piaggio is working on new 250cc-300cc Aprilia sports bikes for the Indian market. The Italian brand previously planned on experimenting with the 150cc motorcycle segment though the increasing market share and the trend for the quarter-litre motorcycles have made them change paths. The brand showcased the Aprilia RS 150 and the Tuono 150 at the 2018 Auto Expo though the motorcycles never made it to the showrooms. The brand now plans on launching higher-displacement sports bikes in India.

Commenting on the plans to launch higher-displacement motorcycles, Diego Graffi, MD Piaggio stated – “Definitely, we are looking with a lot of interest at the motorcycle segment in India. It is natural, having a brand like Aprilia, which is well known across the world for winning in racing competitions. We are now looking more at this range (250cc-300cc). We need some time to introduce the products, but it is in our plans.”

With overall sales near 7,73,855 units in the 2019 fiscal year, the 250cc-350cc motorcycle segment has been doing good for the brands where Royal Enfield certainly takes over 99% of the market share with 7,64,012 units sold in the same period. Piaggio has stated its plans on launching new Aprilia products in the same segment, though the production might take some time.

In addition to this, Piaggio is all set to launch the India-specific Aprilia SXR 160 maxi-scooter in the markets by the end of this year. The brand further aims at reaching 1 lakh sales figure in the current year.

The Vespa and the Aprilia range of scooters have recently been updated by the brand with BS6-compliant engines. In addition to that, the brand has also launched the Aprilia SR 160 that replaces the SR 150 in the Indian markets. The bookings for the updated scooter portfolio from the brand has begun at the selected dealerships.

As we reported earlier, KTM is working on the BS6-compliant model of the 790 Duke for the Indian market. The brand has recently updated its single-cylinder portfolio according to the more stringent BS6 emission norms which came into effect from April 1, 2020. Earlier, there were rumours in the market that the company will stop the production of 790 Duke and will replace it with the 890 Duke R. However, it is now officially confirmed that the BS6 2020 KTM Duke 790 will launch in India in the coming months.

One can expect the brand to launch 2020 KTM Duke 790 in the second quarter of this year. For your reference, the BS4 model of the motorcycle was launched in India at a price tag of INR 8.64 lakh (ex-showroom) while the updated BS6 model will surely get a significant price hike. Before going out of stock, the BS4-compliant model of the Duke 790 was available with a huge discount of INR 2.65 lakh.

Mechanically, the 790 Duke was powered by a BS4-compliant 799cc, 8-valve, DOHC parallel-twin cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that was capable of producing 105HP of maximum power at 9000 rpm along with 87Nm of peak torque at 8000 rpm. The engine was mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

If we talk about the visual updates for the bike, the BS6-compliant Duke 790 will remain exactly like its BS4 model however, the brand will be offering the streetfighter in an all-new matte black shade in addition to the already-existing gloss orange colour.

The brand has recently also launched the BS6 KTM 390 Adventure in the Indian market, along with the 2020 models of the Duke 390, Duke 250, Duke 200, and Duke 125. The RC lineup of KTM has also been updated to meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms. The RC sportbike series includes the RC 125, RC 200, and RC 390, while the brand is also expected to launch the RC 250 in India later this year.
