Talking from an average Indian bike buyer’s perspective, the new Apache RTR 160 could be of the most important new launches at the Auto Expo 2018. Not just this, it will also become of the most significant TVS bikes at Auto Expo 2018. The next Apache RTR 160 will be an all-new model with a fresh styling, new features, re-tuned engine and many new cycle parts. Expect prices to start around Rs 80,000. The new 2018 TVS Apache RTR 160 will become a direct rival to the new Bajaj Pulsar NS 160.

SpecificationsCarbureted, single-cylinder, 177.4cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018

2017 tvs apache rtr 160 images headlight

Now that it’s for sure that a new Apache RTR 160 is in the pipeline, it also gets fairly possible that even a new RTR 180 is headed our way. Akin to the 2018 TVS Apache RTR 160, the new RTR 180 will get fresh new styling, more features and a bump in power. One of the biggest updates will be the rear monoshock suspension. Other than this, the bike could also get a fully-digital speedo console and more features. ABS should be made available, too.

The engine will be carried over from the current model. That said, it’s sure to get some tweaks for added power and mileage. Currently, the 177.4cc single-cylinder engine outputs 17.3 BHP and 15.50 Nm. It comes mated to a 5-speed Manual Transmission.

TVS Apache RR 310-based Racer

Estimated Price
SpecificationsFuel-injected single-cylinder, 313cc
Launch Date

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - TVS Apache RTR 310S

With the RR 310 going on sale recently, TVS is likely to come up with an interesting variation of the full-fairing motorcycle at the Auto Expo 2018. This bike will be a race-ready version of the production model. 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.

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V FI

Estimated PriceRs. 1.20 lakh – 1.26 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 197.7cc
Launch DateMarch 2018

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 - TVS Apache RTR 200 4V FI

Some time has passed since the Apache RTR 200 4V was launched in India. Yet, till date, we do not have the fuel-injected version of the bike on sale in India. This may change at the Auto Expo 2018, where TVS is likely to display the fuel-injected RTR 200 4V. Bosch has developed the FI system of the bike. Also, the fuel-injected bike, as per TVS, has a 1PS higher output than its carbureted twin. This results in a slightly-higher claimed top-speed and five-tenths of a second faster 0-60kmph timing for the fuel-injected bike.

TVS Graphite Scooter

Estimated PriceRs 70000-75000
Launch DateH1, 2018

tvs graphite india images

TVS will likely unveil the production version of the Graphite automatic scooter at the 2018 Auto Expo. The Graphite made its public debut at the 2014 Auto Expo in its concept avatar. The new model looks really modern, has many features like Bluetooth and Satellite Navigation, and even an AMT with paddle shifters. Specifications are not clear at the moment but it will get either a 125cc fuel-injected or a 150cc carburetted engine.

TVS Electric Scooter

Estimated PriceRs 60000
Launch DateAuto Expo 2018
EngineElectric motor

2017 tvs jupiter `125cc images mystic gold

tvs rockz india spy image 2

TVS Motor Co, the popular South India-based two-wheeler manufacturer, could be planning to launch the TVS Rockz 125cc automatic scooter in India. Powering the TVS Rockz 125cc automatic scooter is a single-cylinder engine that outputs a maximum power of 10.5 BHP at 7,500 RPM along with a peak torque of 10 Nm at 7,500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a CVT automatic gearbox.

Honda Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Honda CBR300R

Estimated PriceRs. 2-2.2 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 286cc
Launch DateApril 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 PriceRs. 1.8-2.1 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 249.7cc
Launch DateJuly/August 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 PriceRs. 4 – 6 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, four-cylinder, 649cc
Launch DateMay 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?

Honda PCX 150

Estimated PriceRs 80,000 – 85,000
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 153cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018

honda pcx 150 india launch date images

The PCX 150 has to be one of the most important scooters at Auto Expo 2018. The upcoming Honda automatic scooter in India made its India debut at the 2014 edition of Delhi Auto Expo. The PCX 150 is a full-size scooter that should open gates to an altogether new segment of Indian scooter market. The upcoming model is powered by a 153cc, single-cylinder, SOHC liquid-cooled engine that benefits from PGM-FI fuel injection system. It comes mated to a CVT. Features include a anti-theft system and a smart navigation unit amongst others. Certainly one model to watch out for among all the Honda bikes at Auto Expo 2018.

Honda XRE 300

Estimated PriceRs. 2 Lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 291.6 cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018

honda xre 300 india launch images

Regulars here would remember we were the first to break news of the XRE 300 being India-bound. Expected to become the first-ever dual-purpose motorcycle from Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI), the XRE 300 will be the second such model in the mass market (the first being the Hero Impulse). The XRE 300 gets a 291.6 cc, DOHC, single-cylinder engine that outputs 25.4 BHP @ 7,500 RPM and 27.6 Nm @ 6,000 RPM.

Honda CB Hornet 160R Full Fairing model

Estimated PriceRs. 95,000
SpecificationsCarbureted, Single-cylinder, 162.7cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018

honda cb hornet 160r full fairing model-imagesThis could be one of the most important new motorcycles among all Honda bikes at Auto Expo 2018. The full fairing version of the CB Hornet 160R will become a direct rival to the Suzuki Gixxer SF. It may be noted here that the Gixxer SF has been successful in gradually establishing a strong foothold in the market. The upcoming Hornet full fairing model will try to eat into the market share of the Gixxer SF. Specifications are expected to remain much the same. However, HMSI could still tweak the engine a bit for this bike. Prices could start at roughly Rs 95,000. This bike will get all the features that are available on its streetnaked sibling. This upcoming Honda bike will become the only fully-faired Honda motorcycle below Rs 1 lakh.

Honda Scoopy

Estimated PriceRs 60,000
SpecificationsCarbureted, single-cylinder 109.19cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018


honda bikes at auto expo 2018 scoopy

The Scoopy could become the second of the two new Honda scooters at Auto Expo 2018. The Scoopy is on sale in America as the ‘Metropolitan’. It’s also available in Indonesia, where it gets with features such as LED headlamp and theft alarm. However, it’s not sure if these features would make it to India. For India, this cutesy automatic scooter is likely to get the same engine that powers the Activa 4G. This engine comes mated to a CVT and outputs 8 BHP and 9 Nm. Upon its India launch, the Honda Scoopy scooter will rival the likes of Yamaha Fascino and Vespa LX.

Honda Grom

Estimated PriceRs 62,000 – Rs 70,000
SpecificationsCarbureted, single-cylinder 124.9cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018

honda grom india images

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India might decide to launch the Honda MSX 125 Grom mini-bike at the Auto Expo 2018. The Grom won’t come cheap as its prices are likely to start at roughly Rs 62,000. It will be powered by a 124.9cc engine that will output in tune of 9.7 BHP and 10.9 Nm. It looks like the Grom will be promoted as a sporty offering in India. It will weigh only about 101 KGs, which means that even with roughly 10 BHP of max. power, the new Grom will be considerably fun to ride. It will be aimed mainly at college-goers and teeny bloopers.

Honda Rebel 300

Estimated PriceRs 2,00,000 – Rs 2,20,000
Specifications286cc, Liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke
Launch DateFebruary 2019

honda bikes at auto expo 2018 - honda rebel 300

This is the bike that will finally enable HMSI to rival the Royal Enfield 350 models. It will sahre its engine and other bits with the Honda CBR300R. However, with a price of roughly Rs 2 lakh and decent power and torque outputs along with a cruiser-style look, it can take the fight straight to not just some REs but also the Bajaj Dominar 400.

Yamaha Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0

Estimated PriceRs. 1.2 – 1.4 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 149cc
Launch DateSeptember/October 2018

2017 yamaha r15 v3 led headlamp

Finally, the R15 will get an upgrade worthy of its reputation as a small-displacement supersport bike. Other than a new 155cc 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 nimbler handler too.

Yamaha Fazer 250

Estimated PriceRs. 1.3 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 249cc
Launch DateSeptember 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 full fairing it wears. Unlike the Fazer, which was a disaster, this bike should fair much better in the Indian market.

2018 Yamaha YZF-R3

Estimated PriceRs. 3.4 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, parallel-twin, 321cc
Launch DateApril 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 PriceRs. 3.2 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, parallel-twin, 321cc
Launch DateJuly 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 finally bring the MT-03 to India now.

Yamaha Nozza Grande

Estimated PriceRs. 55,000
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 125 cc
Launch DateMay 2018


The Yamaha Nozza Grande will be another of the very few scooters at Auto Expo 2018. The Nozza Grande is Yamaha’s answer to the likes of Honda Activa 125. Yes, even this scooter is powered by an engine displacing 125-odd cc. Prices are expected to start around Rs 55,000. The Nozza Grande gets telescopic front suspension and an almost quirky styling.

Yamaha FZ-10 

Estimated PriceRs. 14,00,000
Specifications998cc, Four-cylinder, fuel-injected, DOHC
Launch DateFebruary 2018

yamaha fz 10 india launch imagesYamaha Motor India will finally launch the much awaited FZ 10, which is essentially a streetnaked version of the YZF-R1 supersports motorcycle, at the Auto Expo 2018. The FZ 10 will launch in India via CBU route and will cost north of Rs 14 lakh. It is powered by a 998cc four-cylinder, crossplane crankshaft engine that comes from the R1. The motorcycle has a top speed of 250 kmph and can go from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.4 seconds.

Hero Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Hero HX250R

Estimated PriceRs 1.5 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 249cc
Launch DateSeptember 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 PriceRs. 3 – 5 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, parallel-twin, 620cc
Launch DateDecember 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.

Hero Xtreme 200R

Estimated PriceRs. 90,000 – 95,000
SpecificationsCarbureted, single-cylinder, 223cc
Launch DateFebruary 2018


hero xtreme 200r images

The Hero Xtreme 200R is surely taking its own sweet time to launch in India. The Xtreme 200R will, however, officially launch in the market at the Auto Expo 2018. This upcoming Hero bike will become the biggest-ever motorcycle to wear the Xtreme moniker. It will get a 200cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which is likely to output around 18.4 PS at 8000 rpm and 17.1 Nm at 6500 rpm.

Hero ZIR 150

Estimated PriceRs. 70,000 – 75,000
SpecificationsCarbureted, single-cylinder, 157cc
Launch DateApril 2018

Hero Zir (1)

The Hero Zir will be another of the upcoming automatic scooters at Auto Expo 2018. The Zir will be to the Hero what the PCX 150 is to Honda. The Zir gets its juice from a liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that outputs 14 BHP and 12.7 Nm. The scooter has a top speed of 110 KMPL. It comes with a 9 litre fuel tank, which makes the Zir far more suitable for long rides than most other automatic scooters, which generally have a fuel tank capacity of up to 5-litre only.

Kawasaki Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Kawasaki ZX-10RR

Estimated PriceRs. 30 – 33 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, four-cylinder, 999cc
Launch DateAugust 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 PriceRs. 1.2 lakh
SpecificationsCarbureted, single-cylinder, 259.3cc
Launch DateAugust/September 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.

Suzuki V-Storm 250

Estimated PriceRs. 2 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, parallel-twin, 248cc
Launch DateSeptember 2018

Suzuki V Strom 250 India auto expo 2018

The Suzuki V-Storm 250 will be second of the two Suzuki bikes at Auto Expo 2018. The V-Storm 250 is an entry-level adventure motorcycle that is based on the Suzuki Inazuma. It may be noted here that the Inazuma 250 was earlier on sale in India but was taken off the shelves owing to poor demand. The India-bound bike should come in two trims- ABS and Non-ABS. The new motorcycle will go up against the likes of Kawasaki Versys 250. Powering this motorcycle is a 248cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, SOHC parallel-twin engine that outputs 25 BHP-23.40 Nm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed Manual Transmission.

BMW Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

BMW G 310 GS

Estimated PriceRs. 2 – 2.5 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single cylinder, 313cc
Launch DateMay 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.

Vespa Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Vespa Primavera 125

Estimated PriceRs. 2 – 3 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single cylinder, 124.5cc
Launch DateJuly 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 PriceRs. 10 – 12 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, V-Twin, 1197cc
Launch DateNovember/December 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.

New Yezdi Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Yes, you read it right! Iconic bike manufacturer Yezdi will participate at the Auto Expo 2018 and bring a slew of new models for India. While details on this are scarce at the moment, it’s very likely that a new Yezdi 350 motorcycle will be present at the Expo. It may be noted that Jawa bikes is now under the control of Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd (MTWL). The manufacturer now plans to introduce the new generation of Cezch bikes under the Yezdi name. The new Yezdi bikes will launch later next year and will be positioned as a lifestyle brand.

New Yezdi 350

Estimated PriceRs. 1.5 lakh
Specifications4-stroke, 350cc
Launch DateH2, 2018

new yezdi 350 india launch

The new Yezdi 350 model will become the first new Yezdi bike to launch in India. The upcoming motorcycle will be a re-badged 2017 Jawa 350. It gets a 4-stroke 350cc engine with a max. power of 26 BHP. ABS will be available

UM Global Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

The company, which made its debut at the Auto Expo 2016, plans to come up with a handful of new products for the Indian market. Some of these are likely to be seen at the Auto Expo 2018. Here’s a quick lowdown at UM Global bikes at Auto Expo 2018 –

New Scrambler

UM Global is reportedly working on a scrambler version of the Renegade cruisers currently sold here. The bike will employ the Renegade frame which is expected to be strengthened for off-road use. It is expected to get long-travel front forks and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. The Scrambler is expected to get clip-on handlebars and a detachable pillion seat hump. Suspension travel is expected to be less on the cafe racer as well, owing to its primary on-road use.


UM’s other upcoming bike is a dual-purpose machine from its international lineup. The UM Hypersport test mules have been seen testing in India for a while now and UM has recently launched it in Nepal too. Now, having a plant in Pantnagar in Uttarakhand, closer to the Indo-Nepal border, it would make sense for UM to manufacture and export the Hypersport from here. The UM Hypersport is a mini supermoto with a lightweight body and road-spec suspension and tyres. The bike comes with disc brakes on both wheels and weighs a scant 144kg (dry).

UM Hypersport India Images

New Cruiser

The upcoming offering from UM is expected to be a cruiser. The bike will share the cycle parts with the existing models. Certain features like USB charging might be skipped in favour of a stricter price. The upcoming bike will carry the safety features like 360 degree LED lights and Disc brake. It will be targeted at a pocket-friendly model hence is expected to undercut the Bullet 350 Classic by a considerable margin. The bike is expected to launch at 2018 Auto Expo along with the new 230cc engine.

Renegade Duty 230

um global bikes at auto expo 2018 duty 230 images

The Renegade Duty 230 will make its India debut at the Auto Expo 2018. The upcoming UM Global motorcycle is a new 230cc variant in the Renegade range of cruisers. The new motorcycle has already started reaching dealership stockyards. In all probability, the market launch will happen soon after the Expo debut if not at the motor show itself. The Duty 230 will likely cost Rs 1.20 lakh (ex-showroom).

Renegade Electric

UM Global is also planning to come up with the Renegade Electric cruiser at the Delhi Auto Expo 2018. It’s still not sure if the UM Renegade Electric would launch in India in near future, the company could use the Expo to gauge the interest of the show-goers. UM unveiled the electric version of the Renegade cruiser motorcycle at the 2017 EICMA. Powering the UM Renegade Electric is a water-cooled electric motor that outputs a maximum power that is comparable to that of a typical 600cc internal combustion motorcycle engine.

Twenty Two Motors at Auto Expo 2018

Flow Electric Scooter

Twenty Two Motors is a Gurgaon-based start-up that plans to launch its Flow electric scooter in India. Powering the Flow is a 2.1 kW electric motor. The new scooter weighs just 85 KGs and boasts a payload capacity of 150 KGs. This EV has a range of 80 KMs on a single charge. The green scooter has a top speed of 60 kmph and its price is expected to be Rs 60,000.

Bikes at Auto Expo 2018 – List of Companies Yet to Confirm Participation

Bajaj Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Bajaj Pulsar 150NS

Estimated PriceRs. 60,000-75,000
SpecificationsCarbureted single cylinder 149.7cc
Launch DateMay 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 PriceRs. 1.6 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected single cylinder 373.2cc
Launch DateMay/June 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 PriceRs. 80,000 – 90,000
SpecificationsFuel-injected single cylinder 199.5cc
Launch DateAugust 2018

bikes at auto expo 2018 - bajaj dominar 200

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.

Bajaj Boxer X150

PriceRs 50,000 – 55,000
Launch DateMid 2018
EngineSingle-cylinder, carbureted, 144.8cc
Power12 BHP
Torque12.26 Nm
Transmission4-speed Manual

Upcoming Bajaj Bikes in India - bajaj boxer x150 imagesBajaj is likely to launch the Boxer X150 in India by mid-2018. The X150 is an adventure-styled motorcycle that gets bits like on-off road tires and a high-raised front mudguard. It also gets alloy wheels. Powering this motorcycle is the same 144.8cc single-cylinder engine that powers the Boxer BM150 and the Discover 150. The motor comes mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Prices are expected to start at roughly Rs 50,000.

Launch DateJune 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.

Continental GT 750cc

Estimated PriceRs. 3.5 Lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected twin cylinder 749.6cc
Launch DateJune 2018

Upcoming New Royal Enfield Bikes - Royal Enfield Continental GT 750cc

Another 750cc RE headed our way is the Continental GT 750. Currently, the Continental sports a 535cc single-cylinder engine. Sadly, the rather tasty-looking cafe racer hasn’t attained a very high popularity. However, all this could be set to change with the advent of the GT 750. The engine will benefit from fuel injection and output a max. power of 46 BHP and a peak torque of 62 Nm. Currently, the GT 535 outputs a max. power of 29.1 BHP and a peak torque of 44 Nm. The only change in the design will arise out of the twin exhaust setup. The bike has twinexhausts, each slung on either side of the bike.

New Bullet Electra

Estimated PriceRs. 1.40 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 346cc
Launch DateMarch 2018

The next generation Bullet Electra could be one of the most important Royal Enfield bikes at Auto Expo 2018. The new motorcycle will come with several updates whilst maintaining the evergreen charm of the original Electra. The most important update will be mechanical. The 2018 Electra could get a new fuel-injected engine. This 346cc engine is likely to output 22 BHP of max. power and 30 Nm of peak torque. While this will be only a small increase over the carburetred 346cc motor, the gains in refinement and fuel mileage could be tremendous. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

Ducati Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Ducati SuperSport

Estimated PriceRs. 10 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, V-Twin, 937cc
Launch DateJuly/August 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 PriceRs. 15 – 18 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, three-cylinder, 675cc
Launch DateAugust 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 PriceRs. 2 – 2.3 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single cylinder, 373.2cc
Launch DateSeptember 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 PriceRs. 2.3 Lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 373.2cc
Launch DateMarch 2018

Estimated PriceRs. 1.9 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, single-cylinder, 248.8cc
Launch DateMay 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.

KTM revealed the new 790 Duke at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. The new street-naked will soon get into production and launch in many markets worldwide. The company is promoting the new KTM Duke 790 as the ‘ultimate street weapon’. This is the first-ever motorcycle from the company to boast a parallel-twin engine. While there’s nothing official about the new motorcycle’s India launch prospects, the product is likely to rival the likes of Triumph Street Triple S and Kawasaki Z900. The D790 is still in a pre-production stage. However, a mid-2018 launch in European markets looks very likely. KTM Duke 790 India debut is likely to take place at the Auto Expo 2018.

Benelli Bikes at Auto Expo 2018

Benelli Leoncino

Estimated PriceRs. 5 – 5.5 lakh
SpecificationsFuel-injected, twin-cylinder, 499cc
Launch DateJune/July 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.

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.

Hence, this bike will replace the GT250R in India.
