A lot has happened in the past week including new launches, exclusive statements, and much-awaited announcements. Couldn’t keep up with everything? Fret not, here are all the important developments from the two-wheeler world:
Royal Enfield 650 Twins Become Snazzier
Royal Enfield has launched the 2021 Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 in India. As part of the update, both bikes have received new paint options along with new blacked-out components, enhancing their aesthetic appeal. The Interceptor 650 is now available in seven colours, while the GT comes in five. Most paint jobs are brand new with the Interceptor retaining two previous colours and the Conti carrying forward one. More importantly, the 650s have received a significant price hike as well which isn’t really justified. To check out the price breakdown for each colour, read our story.

Yezdi Roadking Making A Comeback
An interesting test mule was recently spotted on Indian roads with a scrambler-type design. On close inspection, we found its engine casing to be similar to that of the legendary Yezdi Roadking, hinting that it could be a Yezdi Roadking-based scrambler. Not a lot was visible, but we noticed the test mule’s engine head and radiator were similar to the Jawas. The test mule also featured spoke wheels wrapped in dual-purpose MRF Kurve rubber, a chopped rear fender, and twin exhausts. Refer to our story for further details and more spy shots.
Bajaj Pulsar 220F Gets New Shades
In a not-so-surprising update, Bajaj has introduced new colour options for the Pulsar 220F, just like it did a while back with the smaller Pulsars. The 220F was spotted in two new colours: Moon White and Matt Black. In a desperate attempt to revive the models, Bajaj has also thrown in faux carbon-fibre taping on some panels. Another colour option is also expected to surface soon. For more photos, check our story.
Triumph Trident Launch Date Finally Confirmed
Four months after commencing its bookings, Triumph has finally decided to launch the Trident 660 in India on April 6, 2021. It is expected to be Triumph’s most affordable offering in India. There’s a lot to look forward to here since the bike packs premium Showa suspension, a fully digital instrument cluster, traction control, ride modes, and full-LED lighting. All this paired with its 660cc triple-cylinder engine churning out 81PS and 64Nm, makes the Trident hard to fault on the spec sheet. For more details and expected pricing, head here.
