The next bike in our list of upcoming bikes in India 2019 is going to be a treat to all the cruiser fans out there. The new Honda Rebel 300 will be manufactured in Inia and will compete with the other cruisers available. The rebel 300 is a handsome cruiser with style written all over it. It will be powered by a 286 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine which produces an output of 27 PS, the transmission will 6 speed to ensure smooth highway cruising. In the international markets, Honda also offers a lot of touring accessories along with the Rebel. The Rebel will be equipped with fat tires for stability and there’s the safety net of ABS too. As of now, there’s no announcement as to when Honda will launch the Rebel 300 in India, but we are sure, whenever it is, the Rebel is going to give a serious completion to bikes like the Royal Enfield’s Bullet and Thunderbird, Bajaj’s Avenger and Dominar considering that the Rebel 300 is going to be priced competitively by Honda. These were a few new upcoming bikes in India 2019 which we think you should wait for before buying a new bike.
5) Royal Enfield Continental GT 650
Now, this is the Royal Enfield India is waiting. The bigger Continental GT 650 is powered by a 648cc parallel twin motor that produces 47 BHP. One of the big problems on the Enfields was that there was no ABS, even in their top of the line models. But times are changing, this upcoming bike by Royal Enfield gets an ABS as standard.
6) Hero Xpulse
Now we know that when Hero announces a motorcycle, it takes years for them to finally launch it. But this time, Hero claims that the Xplulse, bigger brother of Impulse is going to be launched in India in 2019. The Hero Xpulse will be an adventure-ready motorcycle powered by a 200 cc engine and ABS. We think that this motorcycle is going to be perfect for our Indian streets and mini adventures on the weekend. But it’s too early to claim anything.
7) Aprilia RS 150 & Tuono 150
Aprillia dropped two bombs at the Auto Expo 2018 by showcasing their RS & Tuono 150. These Italian beauties are smaller variants of their bigger 1000cc versions. Every Indian rider is waiting for these two upcoming 150 cc motorcycles. They are definitely worth waiting. The RS is a fully faired 150 cc motorcycle, whereas the Tuono is a semi-faired motorcycle with the same 150 cc engine.
8) KTM Duke 125
After witnessing the success of its naked lineup in India, KTM and Bajaj are all set to launch their smallest motorcycle, the KTM Duke 125. Considering the size of the population who still ride smaller motorcycles in India, the Duke 125 can be a hit machine for the Indian roads. It is also being said that the motorcycle will be priced fairly well, we can expect the Duke 125 to be priced around 1.25 lakhs to 1.50 lakhs.
