Recap: All two-wheeler launches in April 2022
Major two-wheeler manufacturers such as Hero, Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha launched new bikes and scooters in April 2022 to kick off the new fiscal year.
The start of the new fiscal year brought a series of new launches in the two-wheeler industry. While some were just simple expansions in terms of new variants, some OEMs have also rolled out entirely new models. Here’s a quick list of all the great two-wheelers launching in the month of April 2022.
Basic model Suzuki Avenis:
Suzuki launched the new base model of the Avenis scooter in India this month. This move made the 125 sport scooter slightly more affordable. However, it also reduced a few features in the process.
Suzuki V-Strom SX:
Besides the new Avenis, another Suzuki two-wheeler that stood out last month was the new Himalayan rival V-Strom SX adventure bike. The new bike costs ₹2,11,600 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and was introduced based on the same engine and platform as the Gixxer 250 range.
Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0:
Yamaha Motor India has released the updated 2.0 version of the MT-15 naked street bike with some notable changes such as a higher performance USD front fork and a new paint scheme and graphics. Apart from these details, the rest of the bike remains unchanged.
R15 V4 World GP 60th Anniversary Edition:
Besides the new MT-15 Ver 2.0 bike, Yamaha has also launched the new R15 V4 World GP 60th Anniversary Edition bike with a new, more attractive exterior paint scheme, while retaining all the basic features and mechanics.
Honda golden wing CDT:
The updated model year Gold Wing DCT was launched in India in April 2022. The new bike was sold at a huge price ₹39.20 lakh (old showroom). It is simply one of the most expensive bikes offered in the Indian market by any OEM. It also has enough premium features to justify the price, such as airbag, navigation system, auto-cancelling turn signals, 7.0-inch color TFT in-dash speakers with audio controls for the passenger, USB Type-C ports and an electronically adjustable windshield.
Destini Xtec Heroes:
Hero MotoCorp launched the new Destini Xtec at ₹79,990 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The scooter now comes with additional features.
Apart from these launches, BMW Motorrad has also rolled out its new F 900 XR Pro, F 850 GS and F 850 GS Adventure motorcycles in India.
