OK, It’s really a long time until any new or flagship bike is launched by any manufacturer in India. But there at least some light of hope is remain for upcoming months of 2017. Lot of interesting projects got spied in India in last some days
Yamaha R15 v3.0
Interesting projects like Yamaha Fazer, R 15, TVS Apache 200 full fairing and many more are already in pipeline. Yamaha R15 v3.0 is already launched globally but Indian market is still waiting for this new avatar of previous full fairing segment market leader. Nowadays this bike will face a lot of competition from local manufacturer ‘Bajaj’. Bajaj Motorcycles have Pulsar 200 RS which can be a very tough competitor for Yamaha R15 v3.0. It will really interesting to see how this bike will perform in Indian market if this will launch in India.
Yamaha Fazer (Full fairing)
Yamaha Fazer v3.0 is again got spied on road for testing. Many Yamaha Fan Boy were complaining about its design and looks, this bike had very few fan for its looks in comparison of R15 and FZ. This spied version is more reliable design and hopefully, this time it will gather more no. of fans.
Apache 200 (Full fairing)
TVS Apache 200 full fairing variant is spied of road, and it’s such a proud moment for Apache fan boys. Because Apache RTR 200 were unable to beat or compete with RS 200. But now TVS has their plans to compete with their fellow country manufacturer. TVS has its negative point that they launch product very late or last, this is the main reason why this manufacturer has some least market percentage. Bajaj launched RS 200 approx. 5 years ago and, it become their flagship motorcycle. Now TVS is launching their first full fairing motorcycle and will try to compete with Bajaj RS 200, Yamaha R15, and Honda CBR 150. These bikes are market leader and have sold their motorcycle in no. of Lakhs. Now TVS is launching their first full fairing when other manufacturers have something new from scratch to launch in market.
TVS Akula is also a pending and much awaited project by TVS. Apache and TVS fans are waiting eagerly to grab the clutch and accelerator of Akula for a long time. After some months this may be launched because again got spied on Indian roads. TVS Draken was the concept bike which liked by most of the bike enthusiast, but practical variant of Draken (Apache 200) wasn’t that much affective. We are hoping Akula will launch as it looks in its conceptualize version.
One more much awaited bike in India is getting spied but still there is no sign of launch. In last months BMW Motorrad officially starts their operation in India. But this bike have some fans from last year. This bike is manufacturing in India and already launched in some corners of globe, all that are exported from India. People now start loosing interest in this bike, after-all there is lot of options they have.
