Just in case you’ve missed out, here are the top five two-wheeler news stories that made headlines this week.
Aprilia SXR 160
Sources suggest Aprilia will launch the SXR 160 in India in the early weeks of December. This will be the first maxi-style scooter from the brand for our country. Select dealerships have begun accepting unofficial bookings for the scooter for a token amount of Rs 5,000. Here's how much the scooter may cost you.
Kawasaki W175 Spied In India
Kawasaki pretty much dominates the mid-displacement segment in India. It's now cashing in on the growing retro motorcycle space by latching bikes like the Kawasaki W800 and possibly even a smaller entry-level 175cc motorcycle. What makes us think so? Kawasaki’s W175 test mule was recently spotted testing around Pune. Here's when you could expect to see the bike in India.
KTM 250 Adventure Launched:
Austrian bike maker KTM has finally launched the 250 Adventure in India. While it undercuts the 390 Adventure, it's still quite expensive if you ask us. However, it looks almost identical to its elder sibling except for its gloss paint finish, halogen headlight and an LCD instrument console. It misses out on a couple of other features too to keep costs in check. Head here to check it out.
Honda Hornet 2.0, Dio Repsol Editions Launched
Huge Honda MotoGP fans? You sure as hell will love this then. Honda has launched not one but two Repsol HRC edition two-wheelers: the Hornet 2.0 and Dio. Although, you would have to shell out to get your hands on these unique liveries. Head here for pricing.
Triumph Tiger 850 Sport
Triumph's Tiger lineup will soon become more accessible in India with the arrival of the 850 Sport, the new entry-level offering of the family. While it's based on the Tiger 900, it's slightly less intimidating in terms of performance and misses out on a couple of features to keep costs low. Click here for more details.
2021 BMW S 1000 R
The manic litre-class BMW S 1000 R has finally been revealed for the international market. The bike not only looks good, but also packs a new Euro5-compliant 999cc inline-four engine which makes 167PS and 114Nm. Additional updates include a sophisticated electronic package, a new 6.5 inch TFT display and LED lights all around. Not to mention, the bike is 6.5kg lighter than before.

Ducati has taken the wraps off the 2021 SuperSport 950 and the 2021 Panigale V4 range. The SuperSport has been thoroughly revised for the upcoming year with a new front fascia inspired by the Panigale V4, along with improved electronics.
