The FB Mondial HPS 300 has been launched at Rs 3.37 lakh (ex-showroom). It was first showcased at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show and is based on the Hipster 125cc (HPS 125) motorcycle.
Powering the HPS 300 is a Piaggio-sourced 249cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine. It produces 25hp and 22Nm of torque. This motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
A 41mm, USD fork and dual shock absorbers handle suspension duties. Braking is taken care of by a four-piston radial calliper and 280mm single disc at the front, and a single-piston floating calliper with a 220mm disc at the rear. ABS is part of standard equipment.
The FB Mondial HPS 300 rides on spoke-wheels which are sized 18 inches at the front and 17 inches at the rear. The front and rear tyre sizes are 110/90 R18 and 130/70 R17, respectively. The bike has a claimed dry weight of 135kg and seat-height of 785mm.
The HPS 300 is undoubtedly an expensive proposition for the Indian market, considering its CKD assembly roots, but it does come with an air of exclusivity.
