The list is long, but the bikes are smoking hot. 

The future holds a crazy lineup of motorcycles  from brands like KTM, Honda, Husqvarna, Benelli and many others. 

It seems like motorcycle manufacturers have realized that the Indian two wheeler market is ripe for the plucking.  

In 2018, BMW launched their 300 cc babies, Triumph came up their new Tiger, Jawa with their nostalgia and Royal Enfield with their best ever motorcycles. Looks like we’re headed in the right direction. Isn’t it? But if you think that’s all, you’re wrong. 

There are many more upcoming bikes in India which are yet to launch. As if that’s not enough, the list of upcoming bikes is diverse. From touring bikes to purebred racing bikes, there’s all. 

Here’s a list of all that is upcoming. 

Hasquvarna Vitpilen 401

KTM & Bajaj are all set to introduce the Huskies to the Indian market. The Vitpilen 401 is among the two upcoming bikes by Husqvarna that will be launched in the Indian market. The Vitpilen will share the engine with the Duke 390 but it will be tuned to match its cafe racing personality.

Honda Rebel 300

If you’re a fan of cruiser motorcycles, Honda has a treat for you in the form of Rebel 300. A heavy looking muscled cruiser which will appeal to the Avenger and Thunderbird fans. The handsome tank, round headlight and minimal silhouette make Rebel 300 stand apart from all other upcoming bikes in India.

Hero Xpluse 200

If you’re a little sceptical about the launch of Xpulse 200, I too am. We both know that Hero promises many upcoming bikes but doesn’t really launch them in the market. We can only hope that it’s not the same with the Xpulse 200, the bigger brother of Impulse. If this motorcycle is launched, we can expect many beginner tourers to consider buying it.

Aprilia RS 150

Aprilia shook India by showcasing the RS 150 at the Auto Expo 2018. The RS 150 is the smallest variant of the RSV4. While we don’t know when Aprilia is going to launch it in the Indian market, it is one of the highly anticipated upcoming bikes for Indian riders. I think the R15 V3 has started to smell competition already.

TVS Zepplin

Zeppelin is another upcoming motorcycle which stole the limelight at the Autoexpo 2018. TVS is working on two cruiser motorcycles which will be powered by a 220 cc engine. The Zepplin prototype showcased at the AutoExpo 2018 was appreciated by everyone who saw it in full flesh. If TVS makes the entry in the cruiser segment with Zepplin, we can expect some harm to the Avenger series.

KTM Duke 790

Guess who’s setting the market on fire in the upcoming days? It’s KTM, my friends. Their mid-sized rocket the Duke 790 is among the most awaited bikes in India, and it is set to launch sometime in 2019. I’m sure it’s going to be a mad motorcycle. Don’t trust me? Well, it weighs 168 kgs (wet) and pumps out a staggering 105 BHP. What do you think it’s going to be?

Yamaha MT 03

If you love the FZ16 as much as I do, and you’ve been wondering why the hell does Yamaha launch more motorcycle from their agile MT series, you’re going to drool after knowing that Yamaha will launch the MT 03 in India next year. The MT-03 comes with a 321 cc engine at heart which produces 42 horsepower. I’m sure that it’ll be a tractable motor with a lot of refinement. There are rumours about more upcoming bikes from the MT series in India, but there’s no confirmation about them

Benelli TRK 502 X

Are you obedient when the wild calls? If yes, Benelli has a machine planned for you. The TRK 502 X is an upcoming bike from the Italian manufacturer Benelli. There are two variants of this bike, the TRK 502 X which will get spoked wheels and the another misses an X, it’s the TRK 502. a more road oriented version with alloy wheels. Benelli is going to launch them in 2019, and I warn BMW GS 310 to buckle up for competition since there will not be much difference in the pricing. Apart from that, the TRK will be the one with a bigger engine and spoked wheels.

Before Bajaj launched the Dominar, everybody was expecting it to be named Pulsar. I think Bajaj decided to ditch the idea because they had something else in mind. The Pulsar RS 400. Bajaj’s latest upcoming bike in India after their Dominar.

Hero has confirmed the launch of Xpulse 200 T alongside the Xpluse. The Xpulse 200 T seems like a more road bias version of the Xpulse, but the uplifted exhaust, metal bash plate and windscreen state otherwise. We’re not yet sure what Hero is planning with these upcoming bikes, but it looks like hella interesting concept.

If you’re looking for an unfettered scrambling experience, the Scrambler 1200 is the motorcycle you should wait for. Equipped with the latest tech, it is the most advanced scrambler in the world.

It is a more road based version of the Tiger and promises a sporty performance.
