Brixton Motorcycles To Launch 4 Bikes In India: Crossfire 500X, Crossfire 500XC, Cromwell 1200 And Cromwell 1200X

Austrian bikemaker Brixton Motorcycles has partnered with Kolhapur-based KAW Veloce Motors to launch four new premium bikes in India including the Crossfire 500X, Crossfire 500XC, Cromwell 1200 and Cromwell 1200X. All four bikes will be launched this festive season, around October 2024.

The Austrian manufacturer is also planning to set up a manufacturing facility in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, with an annual production capacity of over 40,000 bikes.

Brixton Crossfire 500X & Crossfire 500XC

Brixton Crossfire 500X

The Brixton Crossfire 500X is a rugged and muscular cafe racer. It has a round LED headlight, a boxy and sharp fuel tank, a single-piece seat that extends on top of the tank, 17-inch spoke wheels and an upswept exhaust. The Crossfire 500XC, on the other hand, is a true scrambler and is more off-road focused than the 500X. It shares many parts including the chassis, headlight, fuel tank, and seat with its sibling, but looks a lot more off-road ready with a headlight grille, a small flyscreen, an off-road front fender and block pattern tyres. . Both bikes have a negatively-lit LCD console and all-LED lights.

The Crossfire 500X and Crossfire 500XC share the same 486cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine that produces 47.85PS at 8500rpm and 43Nm at 6750rpm, paired with a 6-speed gearbox.

Both bikes are equipped with a preload-adjustable inverted fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking is managed by 320mm front and 240mm rear disc brakes, with dual-channel ABS. The Crossfire 500X has 17-inch spoke wheels, with 120-section front and 160-section rear tubeless road tyres. On the other hand, the Crossfire 500XC has a suspension travel of 150mm up front and 120mm at the rear. The bike gets 19-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheels wrapped with 110-section front and 150-section rear block-pattern tyres. 

The Crossfire 500X is priced equivalent to Rs 6.28 lakh in Europe whereas the Crossfire 500XC costs similar to Rs 6.91 lakh in Europe. However, we expect a slightly higher pricing for both bikes in India.

Brixton Cromwell 1200 & Cromwell 1200X

The Brixton Cromwell 1200 is a neo-retro roadster. It gets a round LED headlight, a sculpted tank, a flat single-piece seat and twin peashooter exhausts. The Cromwell 1200X is a scrambler-style version of the roadster. It comes with a headlight grille, a ribbed seat, block pattern tyres and fork gaiters. The Cromwell 1200 & Cromwell 1200X come with negatively-lit round LCD instrument consoles. It also gets cruise control and two riding modes: Eco and Sport. Both get all LED lighting setups.

Both bikes are powered by a 1222cc liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine that delivers 83PS at 6550rpm and 108Nm at 3100rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Both bikes come with a 16-litre fuel tank capacity.

The Cromwell 1200 and 1200X get a preload-adjustable telescopic fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock, both from KYB. Both bikes have 18-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheels. The Cromwell 1200 gets tubeless road tyres whereas the Cromwell 1200X comes with tubeless block pattern tyres.

The Cromwell 1200 costs around Rs 9.99 lakh in Europe, while the Cromwell 1200X is priced about Rs 10.32 lakh. However, they are likely to be priced slightly on the higher side in India.

All four bikes will be launched as CKD (Completely Knocked Down) units and will be assembled in the KAW Motors’ manufacturing facility in Kolhapur, Maharashtra. 

At first, Brixton Motorcycles will be available in cities including Pune, Mumbai, Nashik, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Cochin, Coimbatore, Ahmedabad, Surat, Vapi, and Panjim. The manufacturer has also announced that the Storr 500 adventure bike will be unveiled globally in November, likely at EICMA 2024, and will be launched in India later.
