The last week was a mixed bag of stories making headlines such as new launches, price hikes, teasers and leaks. While we covered every two-wheeler update in detail, here are the top five amongst these which grabbed our attention the most.
Benelli launched its second BS6-compliant model, the 2021 TRK 502, in India. The motorcycle has been priced at Rs 4,79,900 for the Metallic Dark Grey colour while the Pure White and Benelli Red paint schemes cost Rs 4,89,900. Surprisingly, these prices are lesser than that of the BS4 iteration of the TRK. Besides the changes in its 499cc, parallel-twin engine, it has received new features and a few other tweaks for better comfort.
Triumph has launched the new Speed Triple RS 1200 in India. The motorcycle has made a comeback after being discontinued for a few years in India and it sits above the highly popular Street Triple RS.

Suzuki is all set to bring back its legendary sportsbike, the Hayabusa, as the Japanese brand has teased its arrival on 5 February. Not much has been revealed in the teaser, except for its new instrument cluster which has the same layout as before but it comprises of a TFT screen now. It is also shown being ridden at the speed of 290kmph which means it will be nearly as powerful as before. Interestingly, the upcoming Hayabusa is also rumored to come with a DCT option.
Ahead of its official launch, the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan has been leaked via pictures which reveal its new colour options. The images show that it will be available in three new colours including Mirage Silver, Granite Black and Pine Green.
