From ICE bikes and scooters to an electric bike, September has something for everyone!

Upcoming Two-wheeler Launches In September 2022: Bajaj, Hero, Hop, Ultraviolette, Kawasaki

August was an exciting month with a few highly anticipated bikes and a couple of surprises too, and this momentum will carry on into September as well. So here’s what we can look forward to this month.

2022 Bajaj Pulsar N150

Expected Price - Rs 1.1 lakh (ex-showroom)

Bajaj Pulsar N150

We’ve been steadily spotting test bikes in near production-ready guise, which can only mean that the Pulsar N150 is just around the corner.

Bajaj Pulsar N150 Front

Viewed from the front, the Pulsar N150 maintains the look of the current Pulsar. However, the new bike’s side profile is sharper, and its tail section resembles that of the Pulsar N160 and Pulsar N250

The Pulsar 150’s frame and engine is also based on the N160, though its performance figures will be closer to that of the current Bajaj Pulsar 150, so as to maintain its USP of fuel efficiency. Moreover, the N150 will be available in both rear drum and rear disc variants, though ABS will be single-channel only.

Hero 125cc sporty scooter

Expected Price - Rs 90,000 (ex-showroom)

Hero Sporty Scooter

A series of spy shots suggest Hero Motocorp is all set to take the fight to the TVS NTorq 125, Yamaha RayZR 125 and Suzuki Avenis, with its own 125cc sporty scooter offering.

From what we can see, this new 125cc Hero scooter boasts all-new design elements like an apron-mounted headlight, with its rear indicators mounted on stalks, like a motorcycle. The layout of its digital console, too,  differs from that of all other Hero scooters. Additionally, though it will share its engine with the Hero Maestro Edge 125, it may be retuned for improved performance. 

We expect Hero to price its sporty 125cc scooter slightly below that of its main rival, the TVS NTorq 125

Ultraviolette F77

Expected Price - Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom)

Ultraviolette F77

Ultraviolette Automotive marked the 75th Independence day by offering test rides of the Ultraviolette F77 to Indian Air Force personnel and members of the aviation fraternity at Taneja Aerospace runway, Bengaluru. But more importantly, test rides for us average joes are set to start in this month, so the F77 may launch by this month. 

The Ultraviolette F77 packs enough performance to offer stiff competition to the current crop of 200cc bikes, though it’ll pack a significantly higher price tag.

Hero Xpulse 200T 4V

Expected Price - Rs 1.35 lakh (ex-showroom)

Hero XPulse 200T 4V

Along with a sporty scooter, Hero may also launch the road-biased version of the Xpulse 200 4V this month. 

Now, save for the four-valve treatment to the engine, the new Xpulse 200T will be quite similar to its predecessor. Hence, we’ll get the same 17-inch alloys front and rear, and single-tone paint schemes. That said, there will be subtle visual differences, like the flyscreen over the headlight, and fork gaiters. Check out more details in our spy shot analysis.

Kawasaki new bike

Some days ago we got a ‘block your date’ from Kawasaki… and that’s it. Hence, the new bike could be one of the two following options:

Kawasaki W175 expected price - Rs 2 lakh (ex-showroom)

Kawasaki W175

Our first choice is the W175 retro bike, which was seen testing in India, albeit a while back. Kawasaki’s first single-cylinder bike makes a meagre 13PS and 13.2Nm, and it’ll be the brand’s most affordable offering.

Kawasaki Z400 expected price - Rs 4.8 lakh (ex-showroom)

Kawasaki Z400

The other bike that Kawasaki could launch would be the Z400, essentially the naked version of the Ninja 400. This twin-cylinder streetbike would slot in below the Z650 in Kawasaki’s lineup, and would slug it out with the KTM 390 Duke and Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. 

Hop Oxo

Expected Price - Rs 1.2 lakh (ex-showroom)

Hop Oxo

Jaipur-based Hop Electric Mobility has opened bookings for its Oxo electric motorcycle, with the launch set for September 5. 

The Oxo will be Hop’s first electric motorcycle, though further details are scarce, save for the company’s claims of a 100kmph top speed. That said, the few visuals we spotted on the company website showcased an uncanny resemblance between the headlight of the Oxo and the Yamaha FZ-S V2. 

Before we leave…

Hero XPulse 200 4V Rally Edition

Following the recent deliveries of the first batch of the Xpulse 200 Rally Edition bikes, Hero will now open bookings for the second batch of bikes. The Rally Edition of the Xpulse boasts most of the hardware from the Rally kit, including the adjustable, long-travel suspension, handlebar risers, and lengthened gear and brake pedals. 

Hero XPulse 200 4V Rally Edition

However, it misses out on the flat, bench-type seat, and rally-spec knobby tyres. Moreover, it’s priced at Rs 1.52 lakh, which is just about Rs 16,000 costlier than the stock Xpulse 200 4V; an absolute steal, considering the rally kit costs about Rs 46,000. 

Simple One

The second bit of news is about the Simple One, deliveries for which are set to start in September as well.
