As we enter the penultimate month of 2022, it’s already been a year full of some very exciting launches, but some of the biggest ones are still to come. And November could be the month when some of them take place. Here are all the new bikes and scooters expected to launch in India this month.
Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650
The biggest launch that’s likely to take place this month, and arguably also one of the biggest launches of the year, will be that of Royal Enfield’s long-awaited new 650cc model. The Super Meteor 650 has been spotted testing a great number of times now, and the most recent sighting shows it looking rather production-ready. With EICMA just around the corner, the stage is set for its official unveiling, and with Rider Mania 2022 scheduled for later in the month, it seems very likely that we could see it hit the Indian market in November.
Updated Hero Xpulse 200T
Another Indian manufacturer that’s likely to roll out a new product this month is Hero, which has just teased the updated Xpulse 200T. The teaser is rather symbolic, since we already brought you pictures of the updated bike back in August, highlighting the visual tweaks that Hero will be making to the Xpulse 200T. Expect a launch sooner rather than later, accompanied by a small price hike.
There’s action in the electric space, too, this month, with Ultraviolette slated to finally launch its F77 electric motorcycle. In the period of delay caused by COVID-19, the company has worked on fast-tracking many of the planned updates for the Gen 2 machine onto this first production version of the motorcycle. In the process, battery capacity has jumped up to a massive 10.5kWh and IDC range is a very impressive 307km. An official launch is scheduled for November 24.
Finally, there will be an all new brand entering the Indian market, in the form of QJMotor. This is a sister brand to Benelli - both companies are owned by the Chinese Qianjiang group. For India, QJMotor's debut lineup will comprise 4 new motorcycles, and you can read all about them here.
