The Auto Expo 2018 is still a bit away in future. However, as it is a once-in-two-years affair, auto enthusiasts eagerly await its arrival.

Yes, the Delhi auto show 2018 holds a lot of promise for everyone. With that in mind, here is a list of all the upcoming new bikes at Auto Expo 2018 along with details on their launch date, price and specifications. Do take a look and do not forget to visit our Cars at Auto Expo 2018 piece, too. Enjoy!

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

 

Bajaj Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Bajaj Pulsar 150NS

Estimated Price Rs. 60,000-75,000
Specifications Carbureted single cylinder 150cc
Launch Date H1 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Pulsar 150NS

The Pulsar 150NS follows in the footsteps of the 200NS. Hence, expect it to have the same trellis frame as the bigger bike. However, with a smaller engine onboard, expect it to handle more nimbly than the 200NS. Chances are that this bike will come with projector headlamps, backlit switchgear and other features that are a staple of Bajaj Pulsar motorcycles.

Bajaj Pulsar RS400

Estimated Price Rs. 1.6 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 373cc
Launch Date H1 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Bajaj Pulsar RS400

Finally, the time comes to see the KTM’s 373cc engine in the Pulsar RS range. The RS400 borrows the engine from the Austrian company and drops it in an edgy bike (look-wise). This should satiate the enthusiasts who were waiting for Puslar RS200 to gain more power but not much in terms of price.

Bajaj Dominar 200

Estimated Price Rs. 80,000 – 90,000
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 200cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

The Dominar 400 has been pretty successful for Bajaj. Not only does it offer the KTM 390 engine at a lower cost than Duke/RC bikes, it offers it in a comfier ergonomical package. However, even though its cost is not as much as the Duke/RC bikes, it offers a number of first-in-class features. Expect the Dominar 200 to borrow KTM’s RC200/ 200 Duke engine and leave the rest of the bike unchanged.

Royal Enfield Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Royal Enfield Himalayan 750cc

Estimated Price Rs. 3.5 – 4 Lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected twin cylinder 750cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Royal Enfield Himalayan 750cc

Royal Enfield’s first foray in big-bike territory may start with a 750cc Himalayan. Why? The Himalayan is the most recent bike the company makes. Hence, tweaking it for a bigger engine will be easier than any other bike. Also, this may be the first time Royal Enfield uses a two-cylinder configuration on its bikes than a single Thumper.

TVS Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

TVS Apache RR 310S

Estimated Price Rs. 1.7-1.9 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 310cc
Launch Date Q1 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - TVS Apache RTR 310S

This is one of the most eagerly awaited bikes in recent memory. Sporting the same engine as the BMW G 310 R, this bike represents the pinnacle of TVS Motors’ bike development which started with the Apache 160. Yes, its pricing may not be to everyone’s liking. However, for this special bike, its estimated price is a bargain. If the bike comes with a slight premium over that, it will still be a hot seller for TVS.

Honda Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Honda CBR300R

Estimated Price Rs. 2-2.2 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 300cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

bikes at auto expo 2018 - honda cbr300r

This is the bike that finally replaces the aged CBR250R. By bringing a fresh new bike in the sub-500cc range, Honda may be able to rekindle public interest in the brand. After all, the CBR250R has been outgunned and outclassed by better players such as the R3 and Ninja 300. Yes, they are all costlier than CBR250R, but they are much better too. Let’s see how they fare against the CBR300R.

Honda CBR250RR

Estimated Price Rs. 1.8-2.1 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 250cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

bikes at auto expo 2018 - honda cbr250rr

This is the bike most people will be waiting for with bated breath. A full-blown race replica motorcycle from Honda is a prospect few people can keep at bay. With more people coming down to low-displacement motorcycles, this is the bike that will make Honda relevant beyond measure. After all, this is the bike that can really take on the RC 390 and not the CBR300R.

2018 Honda CBR650F

Estimated Price Rs. 4 – 6 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected four cylinder 650cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Honda CBR650F

This middleweight sportbike from Honda is a derivative of the CB650F naked bike. However, as it is not a full-blown supersport bike, it sports fairly comfortable ergonomics and that makes this bike a better daily driver than most bikes out there. Who needs a litrebike when you can have a middleweight  that has comfortable seating position and usable power for city and highway riding conditions?

Yamaha Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0

Estimated Price Rs. 1.2 – 1.4 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 150cc
Launch Date Q2/Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0

Finally, the R15 will get an upgrade worthy of its reputation as a small-displacement supersport bike. With a 150cc engine, the Version 3.0 will give the bike an all-new look, new features, new colour options and some new-found edginess. Now, not only will it be a great look but a nimble handler too, something previous bikes lacked in.

Yamaha Fazer 250

Estimated Price Rs. 1.3 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 250cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Yamaha Fazer 250

The Fazer 250 is a derivative of the FZ-25. As such, it is almost the same as the latter bike save for the bikini fairing it wears. We just wish Yamaha has finally understood what it needs to do to make a touring bike. Unlike the Fazer, which was a disaster, this bike should fair much better in the Indian market.

Yamaha YZF-R3

Estimated Price Rs. 3.4 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 310cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Yamaha YZF-R3

The YZF-R3 is a great bike but has been pulled from the market as it has a BSIII engine. However, it has some crucial bits missing such as ABS that make it a friendlier bike to use on a daily basis. Moreover, it ergonomics give it the feeling of a sport tourer than a full-blow low-displacement race bike. Come Auto Expo 2018, let’s see if Yamaha is able to fix all those issues or not.

Yamaha MT-03

Estimated Price Rs. 3.2 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 310cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018- Yamaha MT-03

The MT-03 is the naked version of the YZF-R3. To that end, it has similar ergonomics, similar engine specs and similar styling too (sans fairing, that is). Speculation about the bike coming to India was at a high. However, what we got instead was the FZ-25. Let’s see if Yamaha will correct this mistake or not.

Hero Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Hero HX250R

Estimated Price Rs 1.5 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 250cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Hero HX250R

Now that Honda is not its partner, Hero has to stand up in the market on its own. To do so, it has to launch new products in the market. For that reason, there is the HX250R that may show face at Auto Expo 2018. After all, the market for small displacement sport bikes is growing and missing out on it means losing relevance for Hero. This, it cannot afford to do.

Hero Hastur

Estimated Price Rs. 3 – 5 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected twin cylinder 620cc
Launch Date Q4 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Hero Hastur

This bike, the last time we saw it, was in its concept form. Looking at its image, you will be reminded a lot of the Yamaha’s big-displacement FZ bikes. However, it is a mean machine in its own right, coming with a 620cc engine. If Hero is able to keep this bike’s costs in check, it may have a winner on its hands with Hastur.

Ducati Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Ducati SuperSport

Estimated Price Rs. 10 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected V-Twin 937cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Ducati SuperSport

Ducati SuperSport is not a full-blow supersport bike like the 1299 Panigale. However, it is not as tame as the Scrambler either. Hence, Ducati had to give this bike a middle-of-the-road treatment in engine department. However, in proper hands,  it is powerful and capable enough to shame more powerful bikes than itself. The fact that it does not sacrifice daily usability for that is a commendable aspect of this bike.

MV Agusta Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

MV Agusta F3 675

Estimated Price Rs. 15 – 18 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected three-cylinder 675cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - MV Agusta F3 675

MV Agusta bikes are deeply desirable machines. The F3 takes after one of the most desirable two-wheelers on the planet, the F4. The only changes it makes to that package is opting for a three-cylinder engine and a different paint scheme. Oh, there is also the triple organ pipe exhaust tha gives this bike away as the ‘lesser’ MV.

Husqvarna Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Husqvarna Vitpilen 401

Estimated Price Rs. 2 – 2.3 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 373cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Husqvarna Vitpilen 401

Husqvarna is owned by KTM. So, while the Vitpilen 401 sounds like a new bike, it will make use of the same 373cc engine as on the 390 Duke /RC 390. However, that is not a bad thing as this bike looks quite modern. This bike has been spotted testing in the past, which means its launch cannot be too far off in the future.

KTM Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

KTM 390 Adventure

Estimated Price Rs. 2.3 Lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 373cc
Launch Date Q1 2018

KTM 390 Adventure will be a mini 1190

The highly anticipated 390 Adventure is likely to make its debut at the 2018 edition of Auto Show in Delhi NCR. The 390 Adventure is based on the 390 Duke but carries several updates to become a worthy adventure tourer. Prices could start around Rs 2.3 lakh.

KTM RC250

Estimated Price Rs. 1.9 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 250cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - KTM RC250

The RC250 is to 250 Duke what the RC200 and RC 390 are to 200 Duke and 390 Duke, respectively. Now that you can buy the 250 Duke in India, the only thing left for KTM to do now is offer its RC twin too. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for such a happening to take place.

Kawasaki Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Kawasaki ZX-10RR

Estimated Price Rs. 30 – 33 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected four-cylinder 999cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Kawasaki ZX-10RR

The Kawasaki ZX-10RR is a limited-edition version of the ZX-10R. Hence, it is more costly than the regular bike. This bike’s specs include Showa’s Balance Free Suspension and Brembo M50 brakes and that is just the tip of the iceberg. It is a real mean machine.

Suzuki Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Suzuki Gixxer 250

Estimated Price Rs. 1.2 lakh
Specifications Carbureted single cylinder 250cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Suzuki Gixxer 250

It seems the Gixxer 150 needs a big brother too. After having taken on its competitors successfuly for a few years, the Gixxer may just get a big brother next year in Gixxer 250. If it continues the same tradition as the Gixxer 150 (good looks and sweet engine), expect it to become as popular as its little brother.

Benelli Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Benelli Leoncino

Estimated Price Rs. 5 – 5.5 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected twin-cylinder 499cc
Launch Date Q2/Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Benelli Leoncino

If you thought Ducati Scrambler is the only bike of its kind, think again. The Benelli Leoncino is one bike that aims to trump the Scrambler by offering a similar packaghe for lower price tag than the Ducati bike. With looks quite similar to the Scrambler, it has two disc brakes up front to Ducati bike’s one. Which means it is an indication of Leoncino coming with more components than Scrambler. Let’s wait and watch.

Harley-Davidson Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic

Estimated Price Rs. 15 – 20 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected V-Twin 753cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic

Talk about a bagger with attitude. If you have to go on a cruise, the Electra Glide Ultra Classic is the only bike you need. Its 1753cc Milwaukee Eight makes 151Nm torque, more than what you will need for those two-up long hauls. Don’t worry about your entertainment. For a premium, a surround sound system on this bike that has Bluetooth supoort can be had. This and much more can be had on this bike with Harley-Davidson’s long options’ list.

Indian Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Indian Chieftain Limited

Estimated Price Rs 17 – 20 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected V-Twin 1811cc
Launch Date Q1 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Indian Chieftain Limited

This is among the few bikes Indian makes that come with dual disc brakes up front. After all, controlling a 1811cc monster is never easy. However, there is ABS too. Moreover with the press of a button you can lower and raise this bike’s windshield. Not just that, it has a sound system onboard as well as push-button start/stop. There is cruise control and touchscreen display that can help with navigation. What’s more? You can operate this screen with your gloves on.

Indian Chieftain Elite

Estimated Price Rs. 18 – 22 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected V-Twin 1811cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Indian Chieftain Elite

The Indian Chieftain Elite is the costliest motorcycle the company makes till date. This bagger sports a massive 1811cc engine (just like the Chieftain Limited) and some of the best paintwork you will ever see on a two-wheeler. Its four-into-two exhaust system makes it stand out while its hardbags can be opened or closed remotely via the keyfob. With onboard navigation, it is equal parts classic and modern inside out.

Tork Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Tork T6X

Estimated Price Rs 1.25 lakh
Specifications Battery-powered electric motor
Launch Date Q1 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Tork T6X

So, India gets its first electric bike. Coming from a new player in the market, the Tork T6X is the only electric bike on this list. This makes it more unique than all other two-wheelers on this list. Finally, we will be able to experience the power output of an electric bike minus all the pollution a conventional one causes.

BMW Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

BMW G 310 GS

Estimated Price Rs. 2 – 2.5 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 310cc
Launch Date Q2 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - BMW G 310 GS

If you thought the G 310 R is the only thing born from BMW-TVS partnership, think again. the G 310 GS is a dual-purpose bike based on the G 310 R. It makes a whole lot of more sense for BMW to bring it to India than anything else. Why? Firstly, the market for dual-purpose bikes is growing here and two, a bike like this makes more sense in India than a sport bike.

Hyosung Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Hyosung GD250R

Estimated Price Rs. 2 – 2.5 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 250cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Hyosung GD250R

The GD250R is Hyosung’s small-displacement sport bike sold in various markets around the world barring India. The reason this bike will come to India is because Hyosung is not doing well in the country. To rekindle its fortunes, the company will have to bring new offerings to India and replace the old ones. Hence, this bike will replace the GT250R in India.

Vespa Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Vespa Primavera 125

Estimated Price Rs. 2 – 3 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected single cylinder 125cc
Launch Date Q3 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Vespa Primavera 125

This scooter is Vespa’s claim to fame, claims the company on its official website. We can see why. It looks gorgeous in any shade of colour it is available in. With a disc brake up front, the Primavera 125 is sold in 5 colours internationally. Expect it to come to India unchanged, albeit with a big price tag.

Aprilia Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Aprilia Caponord 1200

Estimated Price Rs. 10 – 12 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected V-Twin 1197cc
Launch Date Q3/Q4 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - Aprilia Caponord 1200

The Caponord is Aprilia’s dual purpose bike. To go off road, it has long travel suspension. At 125HP power output from its 1197cc V-Twin engine, that is manageable power for a seasoned rider. To help newbies, the bike has traction control and ABS. Aprilia sells the bike internationally in two colour shades. Expect both to be on offer in India.
