We are back with our weekly round-up of bike updates to make your Sunday even more special. The last week didn’t witness many new launches but it still threw a few surprises at us with exciting new developments. Having said that, let’s take a quick look at the top five two-wheeler news from the last week.
CFMoto launched the BS6-compliant models of its 650cc motorcycles – the 650NK, 650MT and 650GT. The BS4 models of these bikes were discontinued a few days before the BS6 emission norms kicked in last year. All three motorcycles have been revised only in terms of the engine while the rest of the aspects have remained unchanged. The prices of these bikes start from Rs 4.29 lakh.
TVS Motor Company has recently introduced its electric scooter, the iQube, in Pune with an on-road price of Rs 1.11 lakh. Similar to many other electric two-wheelers, the iQube too has benefitted from the revisions in the FAME II subsidy and has become substantially cheaper than before. Until now, it was available only in Delhi and Bengaluru but TVS will now introduce it in many more cities in a phased manner.
Ever since Yamaha launched the new FZ-X in India, a lot of netizens want to know how it differs from its sportier sibling, the FZ S FI. For such people, we recently released a video explaining the details of the FZ-X and how is it different from the FZ S FI. Furthermore, we’ll soon be publishing a detailed review of the motorcycle on our official YouTube channel.
Royal Enfield has rolled out a new service package called the Service Care 24. It is priced at Rs 2,499 and includes four general services and two oil changes. It’s evident from this move that the Chennai-based bike maker intends to improve its after-sales service ahead of launching a host of new motorcycles this year. The exact details of this new package are yet to be revealed by RE.
BMW Motorrad is all set to launch the new 2021 edition of its flagship adventure tourer, the R 1250 GS, on 8 July 2021 in India. This will be the BS6-compliant version of the bike with slight internal changes in its engine. The Euro5 model of the bike is already on sale abroad which runs on a 1,254cc flat-twin engine capable of producing 134bhp and 142Nm. Carrying a slight premium over its BS4 trim, expect the prices of the 2021 BMW R 1250 GS to start from Rs 18 lakh.
