To be available in limited numbers, it is priced at Rs 2.03 lakh.
Honda Activa 125 Premium Edition
Honda has also updated its scooter portfolio with the launch of the Activa 125 Premium Edition in India. Priced at Rs 78,725 (drum brake) and Rs 82,280 (disc brake), the Premium Edition costs around Rs 2,000 more expensive than its corresponding standard versions. Along with the various paint schemes, minor cosmetic changes include a black engine, black telescopic forks, body-color grab bar, and new decals.
Benelli TRK 251 open pre-bookings
Benelli India has started pre-bookings for the TRK 251. The motorcycle will be the entry-level adventure touring vehicle in the company’s Indian portfolio. Interested buyers can reserve a unit of the bike through Benelli’s website for a symbolic fee of Rs 6,000. The quarter-liter adventure bike will take on models like the KTM 250 Adventure, the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the Hero XPulse 200 4V in the Indian market.
Ducat Desert X unveiled
Ducati has finally unveiled its most anticipated motorcycle: the Desert X. This adventure touring car was inspired by Ducati’s Paris-Dakar era. The Desert X will sit below the brand’s Multistrada lineup, but will be a true enduro instead of an adventure sport. The company claims that the brand has worked on many aspects to make the Desert X user-friendly on the road as well as off-road.
