This week in All About Bikes, we get straight to answering your questions. But, before we get started, we have good news for you. Our Group Editor - Vikrant Singh - will be back hosting All About Bikes next week.
We begin by giving more details about the upcoming KTM 490 Duke, which is expected to be launched in India by late 2022 or early 2023. We also give you more details on the impending launch of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 350 (expected name), which has generated tremendous buzz since it was spotted testing. When launched later this year, it should open greater avenues for Royal Enfield.
We continue by telling you, which is the better buy between the TVS Apache RTR and the Hero Xpulse 200. Then, we help you choose between the Honda Dio and the TVS Jupiter, especially for a 20-year-old, college-going student. Further, for a budget of under Rs 1.80 lakh (on-road), we tell you as to why the Honda Hornet 2.0 makes more sense over its rivals. Moving ahead, we also tell you, which is the better buy between the Yamaha MT 15 and the Hero Xpulse 200, especially when you are keen on a good handling motorcycle that's sharp around corners.
Buying a motorcycle for your father? We help you choose between the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and the Bajaj Dominar 400. We also tell you as to why the KTM 390 Adventure is the better buy, compared to the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, especially for someone looking a long-distance tourer with pillion comfort being the top priority.
Further, we tell you what are your options if you are upgrading from a Royal Enfield Classic 350, and looking for a more powerful motorcycle with a high focus on long-distance touring and mild off-roading. Then, we also reveal the expected launch timelines of the upcoming TVS Apache RTR 310 naked, and the Bajaj Pulsar 250. Finally, we help you choose between the TVS Ntorq 125 and the Suzuki Access 125. We also tell you the expected pricing of the KTM 490 Duke, and should you wait for the larger-capacity Hero Xpulse 300.
That's it for this week. If you have any feedback or need help in making your buying decisions, please send your questions in the comments section of next week's All About Bikes video on the BikeWale YouTube channel.
