The last week was all about small-size motorcycles and scooters. With a new variant, a new colour scheme, and an updated model, manufacturers refreshed their portfolios in different ways. For those who want to keep a track of it all, here’s a quick round-up of the top five bike updates of the last week.
KTM finally announced the official launch of the 2022 390 Adventure, after the bike started reaching showrooms a few weeks back. The motorcycle now gets two modes for traction control (street and off-road), new five-spoke alloy wheels, and new colour options with updated graphics. The price of the motorcycle has gone up by Rs 7,000 over the previous iteration and it costs Rs 3.35 lakh now.
TVS brought in a new variant to the Ntroq 125 which is called the XT. Unlike the existing versions which get a single LCD dash, the new XT trim comes equipped with dual screens with one of them being a colour TFT display. Besides the SmartXonnect function, it also gets two new features called the SmartXtalk and SmartXtrack. What are these features exactly? Click on the story link for an elaborated explanation.
Bajaj Auto updated the colour palette for the Pulsar F250 and Pulsar N250 with the addition of the Caribbean Blue paint option. This new colourway is available at the same price tag as the existing models. Thus, the Pulsar F250 Caribbean Blue is priced at Rs 1,44,979 while the Pulsar N250 Caribbean Blue is available at Rs 1,43,680.
Ahead of the official launch of the 2022 RC 390, KTM India has listed the price for the motorcycle on its website. The motorcycle carries a significant price increase over its predecessor, and it has been listed at Rs 3,13,922 as against the outgoing version’s Rs 2,77,635 tag. Surprisingly, the motorcycle is likely to get an adjustable suspension setup as standard, besides other updates.
Royal Enfield has slashed the prices of the Meteor 350 and the Himalayan. The price cut comes into play because Royal Enfield will now sell both bikes without its Tripper Navigation system. Until now, the aforementioned feature was a standard fitment whereas it’ll be offered as an accessory going forward. So, the bikes without the Tripper Navigation cost about Rs 5,000 less.
