September has been a good month for the Indian motorcycle market. With the festive season and healthy monsoon bringing a positive outlook among buyers, the industry saw some interesting changes in sales numbers. Here are the motorcycles which made the most of the festive season and the ones who failed to capitalise on the opportunity.
Bajaj, as we know, is gearing up to launch a range of new Pulsar motorcycles for the Indian market. There’s the fully faired SS200 and the SS400 all set to worry entry-level performance motorcycles like the Honda CBR250R and the upcoming KTM RC390. And in the highly competitive commuter segment, there’s the new 150NS which is a younger sibling of the current Pulsar 200NS.
In news that comes as a boon to our local two-wheeler manufacturers, Egypt has lifted the ban on the import of two-wheelers and three-wheelers. The ban was imposed in February 2014 to lift up the country’s automobile industry. This development will benefit Bajaj Auto, one of the country’s largest two-wheeler exporters.
Bajaj Motorcycles has been continuously testing the Pulsar NS150 and the Pulsar NS150 since the beginning of this year. But the instances of these new bikes being spied are comparatively less, until now. We have managed to get very clear pictures of the Pulsar 150NS test mule that will replace the current model in next few months.
