Honda Unicorn BS6 launched:
On the saner spectrum of the motorcycle segment, Honda has launched the BS6-compliant version of the Unicorn.

Hero Super Splendor BS6 launched:
Hero MotoCorp revealed the BS6-compliant Super Splendor at the 2020 Hero World event last week. And this week, the brand launched the motorcycle at just Rs 6,500 more than the BS4-compliant model. For the added premium, you get a new fuel-injected motor with a 5-speed transmission and even a brand new chassis with improved underpinnings!
Bajaj Pulsar Dominar 250 launch confirmed:
The Dominar 400 has been Bajaj’s flagship product for quite some time now. In order to give enthusiasts a more affordable step into the company’s flagship sub-brand, Bajaj is finally all set to bring in the most affordable Dominar pretty soon!
