    The 2017 KTM RC390 sports a host of updates but it hasn’t gotten the generation change that the 390 Duke has. That’s not to take away from its improvements, though: the one change we’re sure everyone will appreciate is the addition of a more comfortable seat. Adding to its usability are wider mirrors, adjustable levers, and a ride-by-wire throttle that will eliminate the jerkiness at low revs usually associated with the 373cc engine. It also looks a little more traditional, because the exhaust canister is a traditional side-mounted one, thanks to the BS4 emission requirements. A bigger front brake disc helps it stop harder and with more consistency. There are new paint schemes, of course, to differentiate it from the earlier models. However, the generation change that you might be waiting for will be launched in late 2017, but it will be a feature update, rather than a major performance boost.

    The Yamaha YZF-R3 is Yamaha’s response to the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and KTM RC390. Now, however, the Ninja 400 has made its debut, and the Honda CBR250RR and CBR300R are all giving it stiff competition globally. There aren’t any mechanical changes to the 2018 R3 other than the updation to BS4 emission norms, but new colour schemes (blue and black) and the addition of ABS have made it better value. However, it doesn’t offer upside-down front forks or an all-digital instrument cluster like the R15 V3 offers. On the other hand, it still has the sweet 41bhp, 321cc parallel-twin engine and the handling that can bring any man to his knee.

    The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was launched in October 2013 and has proven to be a worthy successor to the Ninja 250R. Introduced here in 2008, the 250R was considered to be the world’s favourite 250cc bike until it was challenged by Honda CBR 250R. But instead of going the single-cylinder way, the Japanese manufacturer upped the ante by adding more punch to the parallel twin-equipped product.

    The Honda CBR250R is Honda's 250cc single-cylinder sportbike that competes with the other fully faired machines in a similar price bracket. The 2018 model year CBR250R has two big changes: one, it is now BS4 compliant, and two, there is an LED headlamp. The rest of the motorcycle stays unchanged other than a tweak to the shape of the headlamp. It will be available in two colours - orange and green. The green was on display at the Auto Expo and is reminiscent of the Hornet's colour and graphics combination. The engine remains a 249cc fuel-injected single that is liquid cooled with 26bhp and 23Nm running through a six-speed gearbox. Braking is delivered by a 296mm front disc and 220mm rear disc. As always, ABS with CBS will be an option. The 2018 Honda CBR250R will compete with the TVS Apache RR310, KTM RC200, Yamaha Fazer 25, and Bajaj Pulsar RS200.

    The 2017 model year of the KTM RC200 doesn’t have mechanical updates, other than the fact that the engine is now BS4 compliant. A couple of changes have been made to its appearance – there are orange wheels, a white/orange paint scheme which has been introduced for 2017. Nothing else changes though, not even the price. That makes it a little more value for money, and as far as entry-level crotch rockets go, you can’t get much better than the RC200. There’s still no ABS, even as an option, and just like its elder sibling, it retains the scalpel-sharp handling that made us like it so much. If you’re looking for an all-new RC200, though, you’ll have to wait until the end of 2017 or beyond. There isn’t any real competition for the RC200 - the only other product that is as committed is the Yamaha YZF-R15, and that sits a segment below the RC200.

    The Apache RR 310 is the manufacturer’s first fully-faired 310cc bike. It carries forward the styling cues from the radical, carbon-fibre clad Akula 310 concept showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo.

    Yamaha launched the YZF-R15 S for the Indian market based on the customer feedback. The Japanese manufacturer claims that there were many consumers who wanted to buy R15 version 2.0, but were put off because of the uncomfortable rear seat.

    After number of spy pictures doing the round of the internet, Bajaj Motorcycles has finally launched its first fully-faired motorcycle, the Pulsar RS 200 for the Indian market. Previously touted to be called as the SS200, this bike has been the most anticipated launch from the company.

    The YZF-R15 changed the 150cc segment in the Indian market the way the CBZ did when it was launched. It was an everyday motorcycle that could genuinely be used as a trackday tool. The second version of the R15 traded practicality for more focused performance, but the advent of the KTM RC200 meant that much better performance was available for the sportbike enthusiast at a similar price. The R15 V3 reduces that gap significantly with technology. On the list are an engine with a few more ccs, but variable valve timing takes the maximum power output to nearly 19bhp with a nominal decrease in maximum torque while spreading that torque over a wider rev range. It also gets all-LED lamps and an all-digital LCD instrument cluster that displays a wealth of information, including when the Variable Valve Actuation switches to the different camshaft profile. The global model also gets goodies like upside down forks, but the model in India gets regular forks. The pillion seat seems to be a little lower, at least visually, which should address some of the pillion complaints. The rear side panels also have a Ducati Panigale-style gap between them and the rear subframe, while also neatly integrating the grab handles for the pillion, which the V2 lacked. There is no ABS available even as an option, and will be available only when it becomes mandatory in 2019. On display at the 2018 Auto Expo also was a ‘Daytona’ kitted R15, suggesting that like the previous versions, more performance will be made available via a kit at a later date. For the moment, however, if your R15 isn’t sporty enough in blue or the matte black/scarlet paint schemes, you can opt for the MotoGP paint scheme for Rs 3000 more. The MotoGP Edition is a limited run and will have a total of 5000 units manufactured, and can be booked only through the company’s official website. Deliveries for this particular special edition will begin in September.
