Vespa Racing Sixties launched:
Vespa launched the delightfully retro-looking Racing Sixties in the country. The Italian brand surprised us with not just one but two variants, catering to both the 125cc and 150cc segments. But the only grinch is their high asking price.
Suzuki Burgman Street new colour introduced:
Suzuki launched a new colour variant for its popular maxi-styled scooter, the Burgman Street BS6. This new blue colour variant looks smart and the best bit is that it doesn’t come at a premium over the other colour variants.
Euro 5 Honda 500cc bikes unveiled:
Honda unveiled the Euro 5 compliant CB500X, CB500F and CBR500R for the European market. Since Euro 5 norms are equivalent to BS6 emission regulations, their launch here in India isn’t all that far. You can check out what’s changed in the CB500F here. To know what’s different in the adventure tourer, the CB500X, head here. As for the CBR500R, check this out for all the details.
Aprilia SXR 160 launch delayed:
The coronavirus pandemic seems to have a greater impact on Aprilia, as its launch has been delayed again from its earlier planned launch in September. Here’s when you can expect the scooter to hit the showrooms.
BS6 BMW G310 twins bookings open:
BMW Motorrad is all set to launch the BS6-compliant versions of the G 310 R as well as the G 310 GS real soon. In fact, the brand has already commenced official bookings for both the bikes. The even better news is that the bikes are expected to be considerably less expensive compared to their BS4-compliant counterparts.
