Offers, new launches and other exciting news all in one place

This week was quite interesting in the two-wheeled world, with many offers being announced, new launches and other updates being released. Let’s take a look at the developments.


Royal Enfield: CEO rides the Himalayan 

This week has been quite eventful for Royal Enfield. The highly anticipated Himalayan 452 is currently undergoing the final rounds of testing and last week we saw YouTuber Itchy Boots riding the bike in Leh, Ladakh and this week it was none other than the CEO of Royal Enfield, B Govindrajan riding the Himalayan through the beautiful Umling Pass.

We also saw the launch of the Super Meteor 650 in the United States, quite a proud moment for Indian motorcycling as one of our own Make-In-India bikes will compete with the likes of Harley Davidson in their home turf.

Royal Enfield also released a teaser of the Himalayan 452 on their Instagram account giving us a glimpse of the machine.

Hero opens first premium dealership

Hero MotoCorp this week has been busy, with the opening of its first premium dealership in Calicut, Kerala known as Hero Premia. This dealership will serve customers who are interested in the more premium offerings Hero MotorCorp has, such as  the Karizma XMR, the Vida V1, and also the Harley Davidson X440, which is jointly developed by Hero and Harley-Davidson.

With the Premia dealership network, Hero intends to provide customers a more premium experience and with a professionally trained sales staff the idea is to give each customer a unique and personalised ownership experience.


Ather and Ola festive offers announced

This week marked the peak of festivities and Ola and Ather came out with different offers for customers who would like to switch to electric scooters for their daily commuting needs. 

Ola first came out with a ‘72 hour Electric Rush’ as part of its Bharat EV fest launched last week, the 72 hour electric fest offered customers the opportunity to save Rs 2000, in addition to the festive discounts that go up to Rs 24,500, when purchasing Ola Scooters from October 22 to 24, 2023.

Ather announced its offers to customers later this week, the main one being a deal where customers can exchange their old internal combustion engine two-wheelers and avail a discount of up to Rs 40,0000 when purchasing the Pro versions of Ather’s offerings, the 450X and the 450S

Yamaha XSR900 GP unveiled

Yamaha made headlines when it unveiled the all new XSR900 GP. The new bike brings design elements that invoke a sense of nostalgia of Yamaha’s Grand Prix racing legacy. The bike overall resembles Yamaha GP 500s from the 80s, ridden by legends of the sport like Eddie Lawson and Wayne Rainey.


The looks can be deceiving but the motorcycle packs a lot of modern features underneath like a 5-inch TFT instrument cluster, traction control and much more.


Scrambler 400X deliveries to begin in November

The Scrambler 400X, now Triumph’s cheapest offering in the scrambler segment, will start deliveries next week. The bike is priced at Rs 2,62,996(ex-showroom Delhi), and as far as competitors are concerned the Scrambler 400X competes with the Royal Enfield Scram 411 and Yezdi Scrambler.
