The implementation of BS6 emission norms is just a couple of days away, which means brands need to clear out BS4 stocks as soon as possible. That has resulted in various manufacturers rolling out attractive offers on their BS4 models and we tried to cover each one of them in the last week. Also, Bajaj added a new touring bike to its line-up. In case you missed out on keeping a track of such important updates, we bring you a quick round up of top five of them.
Bajaj has made the Dominar brand more accessible for the riders by launching its 250cc model. The Dominar 250 borrows its styling and a majority of cycle parts from its larger sibling, with certain tweaks to match its character and for cost effectiveness. Meanwhile, the 250cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine is a differently-tuned derivative of the KTM 250 Duke’s motor. On the pricing front, the motorcycle is Rs 30,000 cheaper than the Dominar 400, with a price tag of Rs 1.60 lakhs.
After launching the BS6 Classic 350 in India, Royal Enfield is all set to introduce the updated model of the Bullet 350. Ahead of its official launch, our dealer sources have revealed the prices of the bike. To be available in standard and X trims as its BS4 version, the prices of the BS6 Bullet 350 start at Rs 1.22 lakhs and go up to Rs 1.37 lakhs, depending on the variant. The 350cc, carbureted motor of the bike will be replaced by a fuel-injected unit, power figures of which have not been disclosed yet.
Despite the Honda Activa 6G being already on sale across India, a few dealers still have its predecessor, the 5G model in stock. For clearing it out, dealers have introduced several offers on the Activa 5G. The benefits include cash discount of around Rs 2,000-7,000 along with free accessories, free helmet, easy finance schemes and Paytm discounts. Notably, the amount of cash discount and availability of other offers are subject to change depending on the dealer.
Suzuki dealers are also offering several benefits on the BS4 model of the quarter-litre offering, the Gixxer SF 250. The buyers can avail a cash discount of Rs 10,000-15,000 along with free insurance worth up to Rs 12,000. Also, there are easy finance options with zero down payment and zero processing fee. For those who want to exchange an old two-wheeler for a new Gixxer, the dealers are giving exchange bonus of up to Rs 7,000.
Bajaj launched the Husqvarna twins, the Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250, last month priced at Rs 1.80 lakhs. Both bikes are already on sale through select KTM dealerships in India who have now begun the deliveries of the motorcycles. Bookings for the Huskies can be done at a token amount of Rs 5,000. Featuring an eye-catchy café racer and scrambler design, the Vitpilen and Svartpilen are powered by the same engine as the KTM 250 Duke. This engine produces 29.6bhp and 24Nm and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
