The Hero Xpulse 200T 4V is likely to be launched this month with the same four-valve engine that is currently doing duty on the Xpulse 200. Featuring a tweaked styling, a small fly screen and a grab rail, the adventure motorcycle might receive new colour options this time. The soon-to-be-launched Hero Xpulse 200T is likely to be positioned below the usual Xpulse 200 4V. Currently, the Hero Xpulse 200T is available at Rs 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom), and we expect that the upcoming Xpulse 200T 4V to cost a slight premium over the current model.
Expected to launch this month, the Ultraviolette F77 will receive numerous changes, including a new battery pack and increased range. The electric bike has been tested for 10,000 km, says Narayan Subaramaniam, Co Founder and CEO of Ultraviolette in an exclusive interview with us. Likely to launch in Bengaluru, the Ultraviolette F77 price is expected to range between Rs 3-3.5 lakh (on-road).
Kawasaki new bike
Kawasaki is gearing up to launch a new motorcycle in the last week of September. There is no clear information about the upcoming launch, however we expect that it might be the W175 which has been spotted testing many times. The Kawasaki W175 will be a retro-styled motorcycle that will likely make use of a 177 cc air-cooled two-valve SOHC engine, producing 13 hp power and 13.2 Nm torque.
The company will bring the BS6-spec motor with fuel injection for the Indian market in order to change the power figures a bit. According to various media reports, the Kawasaki W175 price in India might range from Rs 1.25-1.4 lakh when launched.
