It was literally a two-wheeler bash in the Indian market last week as a bunch of new and interesting products were introduced. From premium scooters to full-blown ADVs, we got to see a variety of new entrants. Moreover, we also reviewed Suzuki’s new quarter-litre adventure tourer. Was it too much to keep up with your busy schedule? Here’s a quick round-up.
KTM India has announced the launch of the 2022 RC390. The latest iteration of the supersport model has been launched at an ex-showroom, Delhi price tag of Rs 3,13,922; a hike of about Rs 36,000 over the outgoing trim. The bookings for the motorcycle have commenced across India. The 2022 model gets several styling, feature and hardware-related updates over its predecessor.
Triumph Motorcycles India has announced the launch of the 2022 Tiger 1200 in our market with prices starting from Rs 19.19 lakh onwards.

Hungarian two-wheeler brand, Keeway has entered the Indian market with two premium scooters – Vieste 300 and Sixties 300i. While the former is a modern-looking sports maxi scooter, the latter is more of a neo-retro offering. Prices for both scooters are the same at Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom) while the 18.7bhp, 278.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor is also common. Where they are different is in the styling and features department.
Suzuki is touting the V-Strom SX 250 as a ‘sports adventure tourer’. The prefix ‘sports’ in its name and the prohibition imposed on us from taking the bike off-road during this ride clearly indicate that this is not an enduro by any stretch. So, is it any good on the road then? And how versatile is it? Find all the answers by reading the detailed review.
KTM was recently spotted testing a full-fledged enduro motorcycle which is said to be based on the brand’s next-gen 390 platform.
