The last week brought along just a handful of price hike stories. Instead, it was filled with new launches and spy shots which made the week quite cheerful. Of all these two-wheeler news stories, some truly grabbed our attention and we list down the top five amongst them.
Honda introduced the Sports edition model of its premium 125cc scooter, the Grazia. As the name suggests, it looks sportier than the standard trims with a few additional visual elements. It is available in black and red paint scheme with contrast coloured highlights. Priced at Rs 82,564, the Grazia Sports edition demands a minor premium over the standard and deluxe versions.
TVS introduced the new, cosmetically-fancier, Winner edition model of its moped, the XL 100, in India. It is priced at Rs 49,599 which makes it Rs 400 more expensive than the XL 100 i-Touch Special edition trim. For the extra money, you get the distinctive Delight Blue paint scheme, dual tone seats with a quilted design, dual tone footrest area along with chrome-finished mirrors and exhaust shield.
Okinawa has introduced a new B2B electric two-wheeler, the Dual, in India. It is aimed at businesses who want to infuse environment-friendly transportation in their last-mile logistics. With a step-through design, the Dual gets two carriers at the rear which are big enough to accommodate large items like gas cylinders. There’s a huge carrier at the front as well. Moreover, will offer a host of utility accessories for the Dual. It has been priced at Rs 58,998.
Royal Enfield was spotted testing the next-generation 2021 model of its most popular motorcycle, the Classic 350. It looks production-ready and the fact that it’s undergoing rigorous testing hints that the official launch might take place soon. The 2021 Classic 350 will be based on RE’s new J platform on which the new Meteor 350 is also based. It will also be more modern with LED lighting and perhaps, with a Tripper navigation system.
Apart from the 2021 Classic, RE was also sighted testing its upcoming 650cc cruiser offering. The new images show the rear section only, revealing an LED tail lamp, pillion seat with a back rest twin exhausts and a wide rear tyre. Previously, it was also spied with accessories like windscreen and crash bars. This motorcycle will most likely get the same engine as the existing RE 650cc twin but with revised cycle parts. The launch timeline of the bike is unknown but we believe its arrival isn’t too far.
