The last week was all about new products with some of them already been launched while others being on their way to break cover. And apart from conventional two-wheelers, we also witnessed the electric bike segment receiving new entrants. For those who missed important bike updates in the last week, here are the top five of them.
Honda launched the sportier-looking version of the Hness CB350 in India. It is called the CB350RS and has been priced at a slight premium over the standard CB350. What you get for the extra money is a different paint scheme, blacked-out components, chunkier tyres, a different tail section and a revised positioning of footpegs and handlebar.
After discontinuing the Pulsar 180 naked bike for a long time, Bajaj has re-launched the motorcycle in India. It has been priced at Rs 1,04,768 which makes it slightly cheaper than its semi-faired F sibling. Apart from a different styling, the hardware and 180cc engine of naked Pulsar 180 remains identical to its faired version.
Benelli introduced the BS6-compliant iteration of its middle-weight scrambler-styled offering, the Leoncino 500. Surprisingly, it has been priced Rs 10,000 lesser than its previous BS4 counterpart. The only change it has received is in the engine for cleaner emissions but it continues to produce 46.8bhp and 46Nm. Meanwhile, the Leoncino 500 has remained unchanged in all other aspects.
Kabira Mobility, a Goa-based startup has launched its first set of electric motorcycles called the KM 3000 and KM 4000 in India. While the former is a fully-faired offering, the latter is a naked electric bike. The KM 3000 is priced at Rs 1,26,990 and it is powered by a 6kW motor. Meanwhile, the KM 4000 is priced higher at Rs 1,36,990 and it also features a larger 8kW motor. For complete details of both these electric motorcycles, click on the story link.
Ahead of its official launch, CFMoto has revealed the BS6 model of its naked street bike, the 300NK. As can be interpreted from the image posted by CFMoto on its social media handles, the 300NK will remain untouched in terms of styling, features and cycle parts. Perhaps, the only revision has been executed in its 292cc engine. The BS4 300NK makes 33.5bhp and 20.5Nm which is likely to remain the same.
