Top upcoming bikes under 4 lakh: Royal Enfield, Yamaha, KTM, Harley
Delhi : The two-wheeler market in India is constantly evolving, and new models are occasionally introduced. The entry-level luxury class is now one of the most in-demand markets, and a plethora of new releases, from fully faired sports machines to adventure cycles, from both domestic and foreign manufacturers, are on the horizon. Let's look at several forthcoming bikes in India that cost less than Rs. 4 lakh.
Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 and Scrambler 650
Following the introduction of the Super Meteor 650, Royal Enfield is aiming to increase the market share of its 650cc lineup. With a number of modifications, including as an upright seating posture, mid-set foot pegs, and an overall athletic appeal in terms of style, the Shotgun 650 will be the sportier variant of the SM 650. The Scrambler 650, on the other hand, will be built on the present Interceptor 650 and may go by the moniker Interceptor Bear 650. It will also include some scrambler design elements.
New-Generation KTM Duke 390
The Duke 390, perhaps the most well-known nameplate in India, will shortly receive a significant makeover. It will be a whole new generation vehicle with several improvements to the chassis, engine, and external styling. The most recent test mule was seen without any coverings, exposing the bike in its entirety. The first half of 2024 will see the release of the brand-new KTM Duke 390.
Yamaha MT-03 and R3
Some media sources state that Yamaha R3 and MT-03 unofficial bookings have already started and that the products will be released in the upcoming months after recently being displayed at a dealer event. A 321cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine, capable of producing 42 bhp and 29.5 Nm of peak torque, would power both motorcycles. The MT-03 is the R3's naked equivalent, and the R3 is a completely faired sports bike.
New 450cc Roadster and New Generation Himalayan
A brand-new 450cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine will be the driving force behind the impending new-generation Himalayan 450. Additionally, we anticipate a variety of equipment updates, including 21-inch wire spoke front rims, USD forks, a more contemporary appearance with some classic features, and more. The Himalayan 450, a new motorbike with roadster styling that will share the drivetrain and components with the impending next-generation Himalayan, will be released after the debut in the following months.
New Triumph-Bajaj Bikes
Street Tracker, Adventure, and Hurricane are the three new names that have just been trademarked, which suggests that new bikes from the Bajaj-Triumph cooperation will be released very soon. The two-wheelers, which have been repeatedly spied in India, would be made at a Bajaj facility and will be propelled by a single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine.
Harley Davidson X440
The forthcoming two-wheeler produced by the Hero-Harley Davidson joint venture would have a 440 cc single-cylinder air/oil cooled engine. The bike will have classic roadster-like style in terms of design, and there will be a lot of localization in the parts. This is due to the HD X440 being produced domestically in India by Hero MotoCorp.
