Delhi : In the coming year or two, the Indian motorcycle industry is preparing to welcome a slew of new models at various price points and body styles. As manufacturers are ready to introduce new products to capture greater market share, attention will be focused on the 200 to 450 cc sector. Here, we've discussed the three models that India will be introducing next month.

Karizma XMR 210, a New-Gen Hero

For years, the Hero Karizma nameplate stood for sportiness, affordability, and dependability, but it was unable to maintain its hegemony when new incarnations were introduced. The biggest two-wheeler manufacturer in the world is launching the next generation Karizma XMR 210 on August 29, 2023 in India, with the goal of reclaiming the lost glory.

It will have contemporary design components and underpinnings while drawing design inspiration from the original Karizma. In order to compete with the likes of the Yamaha R15 V4, Bajaj Pulsar RS 200, and Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, Hero will likely price the new-generation Karizma reasonably at roughly Rs. 1.75 lakh (ex-showroom). A brand-new 210 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with about 25 horsepower and 30 Nm of torque would power it. A six-speed gearbox will be mated to it.

Royal Enfield Bullet 350 New Generation

The unveiling of the new Royal Enfield Bullet 350, which will make its debut on August 30, has also been announced for later in the month. It will be powered by the well-known 349 cc air-and-oil-cooled SOHC engine featured in the Hunter 350, Classic 350, and Meteor 350 and will ride on a new double-cradle chassis. It shares a number of characteristics with the Classic and is anticipated to be the 350 cc series' entry-level model.

Honda SP 160

According to a story that surfaced online, Honda will introduce a brand-new 160 cc motorbike next month that will be based on the SP 125 in terms of styling. The Unicorn 160's powerplant, which generates over 13 horsepower, will be used in this vehicle. It might be priced reasonably between 150 and 160 cc and have smaller wheels than the Unicorn.
