After a lot of test-runs and speculations, Royal Enfield might finally launch the all new second generation Classic 350 in June 2021. The new Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be retaining its signature retro design theme, albeit with mildly redesigned body panels.
The current generation Royal Enfield Classic 350 is somehow bare bones for the price at which it is offered. However, the Indian motorcycle major will be equipping the new generation model with a couple of new generation features, including a part digital instrument console which will finally include a fuel gauge. There will also be a separate round housing for the ‘Tripper’ turn by turn navigation system, which first debuted on the Meteor and now also is there in the Himalayan.
The biggest change in the new generation Royal Enfield Classic 350, however, is the new J-platform under its skin, which will come mounted with an all new four stroke, single cylinder, air cooled, fuel injected, 349cc engine from the Meteor 350.

When Yamaha trademarked the name FZ-X in the Indian market a year ago, everyone was speculating that a dual purpose motorcycle from Yamaha is on its way. However, a few spy pictures of a mystery motorcycle from Yamaha surfaced on the internet, which clearly show the Yamaha FZ-X branding on it, but is an unexpectedly different motorcycle.
The new Yamaha FZ-X is expected to draw a neo-retro design on the lines of the Yamaha XSR155 sold overseas. The round headlamp and minimalist design make sure the Yamaha FZ-X has a completely different appeal from the motorcycle on which it is based, the Yamaha FZ.
The new Yamaha FZ-X will most possibly retain the four stroke, single cylinder, air cooled, fuel injected, 149cc engine from the Yamaha FZ, which is one of the least powered but most usable engines for urban conditions in its category.
Bajaj Pulsar 250

For a long time, Bajaj Auto has been silent when it comes to all new motorcycle launches, amidst the competition moving forward. However, this very silence is soon going to be disrupted by the all new Bajaj Pulsar 250, which is undergoing test runs for a long time now.
The Bajaj Pulsar 250 will wear an all new design theme, which will make it much more modern and aggressive looking than the current flagship model in Pulsar lineup, the NS200. The new Bajaj Pulsar 250 is expected to be showered upon with more modern features like a fully digital instrument console and an LED headlamp.
Bajaj already has a 250cc platform ready with it, which is present on a number of motorcycles including Bajaj Dominar 250, KTM Duke 250, KTM Adventure 250 and the 250cc twins from Husqvarna, the Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250. The same liquid cooled 250cc single cylinder engine is expected to power the Bajaj Pulsar 250, though with major changes to its tuning setup.
KTM RC 390

While the Duke lineup from KTM has received a major overhaul almost four years ago, the corresponding fully faired sibling of it, the RC, hasn’t seen much of a change in all these years apart from color schemes.
However, KTM is all set to change the game with the launch of the all new RC390 in June 2021. The all new KTM RC 390 will be completely different motorcycle from the model it will be replacing, sporting a much sharper bodywork and inclusion of a cople of new features like all LED headlamp setup and full TFT instrument console from the Duke 390.
The new KTM RC 390 will also retain the two-part trellis frame and single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected, 373cc engine from the Duke 390, with the latter one possibly in a slightly revised state of tune.
TVS Apache RR 310

In 2020 only, TVS relaunched its flagship model, the Apache RR 310, with major changes to its engine and features set list. It seems that TVS has got the knack of bettering itself, which is why the Indian homegrown two wheeler major is going to launch the Apache RR 310 with a couple of new updates again.
For starters, there will be no change to the overall design of the TVS Apache RR 310, save for new color schemes in the lineup. Secondly, while it will retain the fantastic and comprehensive equipment list comprising of Bluetooth enabled full TFT instrument console, bi-beam LED projector headlamps, LED tail lamp and ride modes, it will now also come with a fully adjustable suspension too. The single cylinder, liquid cooled, 313cc powertrain on the TVS Apache RR 310, though, is expected to be the same.
Ducati Panigale V4
Ducati will be expanding its BS6 motorcycle lineup by relaunching its flagship supersport motorcycle, the Panigale V4, in its BS6 iteration after a pause of over 1 year.
The new benchmark in Ducati’s supersport heritage, the Ducati Panigale is expected to retain the quintessentially beautiful Italian design without any single change. The same goes for the liquid cooled, V4, 1103cc engine, though it will be in BS6 guise this time around. This engine recently made its debut in the Streetfighter V4, however, for the Panigale V4, it will be in a different state of tune, with 214 PS of maximum power and 124 Nm of maximum torque.
Ducati Diavel 1260
Apart from the Panigale V4, Ducati will also bring down the Diavel 1260 to the Indian shores. The flagship version of its hyper naked-cum-cruiser motorcycle, the Ducati Diavel 1260 will come with an extrovert design language boasting of impeccable attention to detailing as well as healthy equipment list.
The Ducati Diavel 1260 comes fitted with the Italian brand’s currently biggest engine – a liquid cooled, L-twin, 1262cc engine, the power and torque outputs of which are rated at 164 PS and 129 Nm respectively.
