The upcoming Auto Expo 2014, to be held in Delhi, will showcase an array of bikes including some concept bikes from manufacturers all over. Here's a list of bikes that you can look forward to at the upcoming Delhi Auto Expo.
Harley-Davidson Street 750
The new Harley-Davidson Street 750 was recently unveiled at the India Bike Week 2014 in Goa, and those of you who weren't present there, can witness what is probably the most awaited Harley Davidson in India, being launched at the Auto Expo 2014. The bike maker manufactured the Street 750 after conducting surveys across 11 countries and interviewing over 3,000 young consumers.
Hero MotoCorp HR250R
The HX250R sportsbike from Hero MotoCorp, featuring the trademark Hero lightning bolt design, will be making its way to Auto Expo. The fully-faired sportsbike packs a four-stroke, 249cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder and fuel-injected engine, with a six-speed gearbox. It looks the part as well, due to its sleek under-seat exhaust and a rear monoshock. Brakes comprise a 300mm front disc and a 220mm rear disc as standard, with Combined Braking System and ABS available as option.
Honda Activa 125
Honda is all set to launch its Activa 125 automatic scooter at the Auto Expo 2014. This new scooter will be powered by a four-stroke, 125cc, force air-cooled, single-cylinder engine, with variator-controlled automatic transmission. Expected to carry similar styling cues as its predecessors, the Activa 125 would be the first-ever 125cc scooter to go on sale from HMSI.
Honda will be showcasing the all-new CBR500R, a mid-level sportsbike, targeted not only at riders planning to move up the displacement class, but also at experienced riders looking for an alternative to larger sportsbikes. Powered by a four-stroke, 471cc, liquid-cooled and parallel-twin engine, it features a full fairing spawned from Honda’s well known sportsbikes, the CBR600RR and CBR1000RR.
Bajaj faired-in Pulsar 200
Bajaj’s upcoming new faired-in Pulsar 200, spotted testing for quite some time now, will be showcased at the Auto Expo 2014, alongside a cruiser concept which is still in its development stage. The soon-to-come Pulsar, in its latest faired-in avatar, should prove to be a strong competitor, being a feature-rich sportsbike offering good value-for-money, in trademark Bajaj fashion.
Moto Morini Scrambler 1200 and Granpasso 1200
Mumbai-based custom bike maker Vardenchi, along with its Italian partner Moto Morini, will launch their new all-terrain bike Scrambler, and the adventure bike Granpasso, at the Auto Expo 2014. Jointly developed by the two firms, both bikes will use Moto Morini’s 1187cc, V-twin powerplant and will be produced by Vardenchi at its Mumbai facility in limited numbers for sale in India and Europe.
Launching around April 2014, Hyosung GD250N which is assumed to be a competitor to KTM’s Duke, will be making its way to the Auto Expo, to give you an idea of Hyosung's future offerings for India. The Hyosung GD250N comes with a street naked design, accentuating the engine, rear suspension and chassis. The GD250N is powered by a four-stroke, liquid-cooled, 249cc single-cylinder engine with fuel injection, delivering 28bhp of power.
