From price hikes to test sightings, we bring you all the updates from last week
The last week of February 2021 has been a rather busy one. Here’s all the two-wheeler news you may have missed from the last seven days:
BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Incoming
Our sources recently revealed that the launch of the BS6 Ninja 300 was right around the corner. Soon after, Kawasaki unveiled three new colour schemes for the baby Ninja via its social media handles. The colours include a new KRT livery and two striking options with all-new graphics! For full deets, expected pricing and tentative launch date, check out our full story.
Bullet 350 Sees Price Hike Again
Royal Enfield has finally started following modern trends but sadly, it’s the trend of price hikes. We saw a nominal price hike by RE in the first month of 2021, but for February 2021, it has introduced a 4-digit price hike for the Royal Enfield Bullet 350. The motorcycle, though, has remained exactly as it is, which makes the hike pretty hard to digest. Read our story for the updated prices.
2021 Bajaj Pulsar NS160 Spotted
Bajaj’s Pulsar NS range has been a game-changer for the brand in many ways. That’s why, even with minimal updates, it sells in heavy numbers. That said, Bajaj seems to be working on updating its Pulsar NS lineup. A Bajaj motorcycle was recently spotted testing covered in camouflage, but its alloy wheels and underpinnings suggest it’s a Pulsar NS160. Check out our article for a thorough breakdown and expected launch date.
