Upcoming Bikes: The firm had us on our toes in August 2022 with a lot of new product releases, and September is looking pretty special as well with six launches scheduled. Here’s a quick glance at what’s available in stores this month:
Upcoming Bikes: Bajaj Pulsar N150
Anticipated Value: Rs 1.05 lakh (ex-showroom)
The Pulsar N150 has undergone extensive testing by Bajaj, and we anticipate the bike will be introduced this month. Since the one with a rear drum brake and single-channel ABS was recently spotted, we also know it will be offered in two different configurations. Although the engine may be based on the Bajaj Pulsar N160, it will undoubtedly be downsized.
Having said that, the N150 could provide roughly the same amount of power and torque and be just as fuel-efficient as the current technology model. The mechanicals might possibly be identical to the Pulsar N160, albeit with slightly lower specifications. You now know everything there is to know about the impending Pulsar.
Upcoming Bikes: Ultraviolette F77
Anticipated Value: Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom)
There are some electrical motorcycles geared for commuters in the Indian EV segment, but none that are actually sporty. With the new F77, Bengaluru-based Ultraviolette hopes to change this. The pre-production model was unveiled in 2019, but the Ultraviolette team has since improved the bike and given it a more polished appearance.
It will undoubtedly be the sportiest electronic bike in India, with performance comparable to a 250cc motorcycle! Additionally, it has a 200km range, quick charging, and interchangeable battery functionality. According to the company, check rides will arrive in September, and deliveries will start in October.
Upcoming Bikes: Hero XPulse 200T 4V
Anticipated Value: Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom)
Hero hopes that the new 4V avatar, which was spotted last month, will change the Hero XPulse 200T’s reputation as the less popular brother of the XPulse 200. It resembles the current model in most ways but has undergone some visual changes.
This has gaited forks and a little retro-style flyscreen. More significantly, though, the bike might receive the same four-valve engine as its off-road sister. Although the fundamentals might remain the same, we really hope Hero fine-tunes the suspension because the current model is a little on the firmer side.
Upcoming Bikes: Hop Oxo
Anticipated Value: Rs 1.20 lakh (ex-showroom)
The Hop Oxo, which is expected to be on sale this week, is another gadget “Hopping” onto the electrical bandwagon. It appears to be aiming for the Tork Kratos with a span of 150km and a prime velocity of 100kmph. You now have all the information you need about the future electric bike.
New Kawasaki Bike
Kawasaki sent us a “block your date” invitation for September 25 and told us it would be unlike from any other product we had previously purchased in India. Now, the Kawasaki W175 was already investigated in August of last year, so it makes sense that Kawasaki would release the child vintage bike this month.
Kawasaki already offers the Ninja 400 in this region, so the Z400 will be a perfect bike to compete with the KTM 390 Duke, but since we haven’t been able to confirm whether it will definitely be the W175, another danger might very well be the release of the Z400.
