Upcoming Two-Wheeler Launches and Unveils In August 2022
August 2022 is all set to be a busy month in terms of car launches and unveils, but the same is not the case for two-wheelers. Though not many two-wheeler launches are scheduled for this month, there are still a few notable two-wheelers set to hit the market. Let’s take a look at what they are:
ROYAL ENFIELD HUNTER 350
Royal Enfield is all set to unveil its most accessible model- the Hunter- 350 in August’s first week. The motorcycle aims to offer people upgrading from the commuter segment an ideal entry point into the 350cc segment. While the motorcycle’s specifications are still to be officially revealed, it is expected that the bike will be the most minor, most significant, and most compact model in Royal Enfield’s range. The 350 cc J Series engine will be carried over from the Classic 350 & Meteor 30, and it is likely that it will develop an identical 20.2bhp and 27 Nm torque as it does in those models.
The Hunter 350 will go up against the likes of the Honda CB 350, TVS Robin, and Jawa 42. We expect prices to be in the region of Rs 1.70 Lakh (ex-showroom), making it the most affordable model in Royal Enfield’s lineup.
THE NEW HONDA BIGWING’S TWO-WHEELER
Honda is all set to unveil a new two-wheeler on August 8, 2022, and the Japanese manufacturer is bringing the model via its BigWing lineup, ruling out the launch of any small scooter or motorcycle. Honda has been tight-lipped about its upcoming product, and it used the word ‘Formidable’ while announcing the launch date, confirming almost no detail about the two-wheelers.
We expected that the new motorcycle would not be based on the Honda CB 350 motorcycles already on sale in India, and it is likely to be based on a new platform with an engine between 300-500 cc. The model is expected to be either the Forza 350 premium maxi-scooter, spotted testing in India earlier, or the Honda CRF300L adventure bike also spotted at the dealership. But these are only speculations, and we will have to wait until the following week to find out which model it is.
