With 2020 now behind us there is plenty to look forward to, and that includes a whole bunch of new two wheelers. In this story, we’re going to list out what new bikes and scooters you can expect to see go on sale this year, and we’ll start alphabetically with Aprilia.
The last big launch of 2020 was the Aprilia SXR 160 and the company plans to follow this up with the smaller SRX125 this year. The SXR 125 will run the same chassis and bodywork as its bigger sibling, but with a smaller motor from the Aprilia SR and Storm 125 scooters.
Aprilia will also be bringing in its brand-new middleweight sport motorcycles to India next year, the RS 660 and the Tuono 660. These bikes should be here by mid-year and they will be coming in as CBUs.
Moving on to Bajaj, two years ago we broke the news that the company was working on the next generation Pulsar and we believe this bike could be ready for launch this year. Details are scarce at the moment, but this is probably the most exciting thing we’re going to see from Bajaj in 2021.
Benelli has been expanding its dealer network over the last year or two and the company has announced that it will be launching 7 motorcycles in India this year. Most of these are BS6 compliant versions of bikes that were already sold here like the TRK 502, the TRK 502X, the Leoncino 500, the 302 S, the 302 R and the Leoncino 250. Benelli will also be launching its popular TNT 600i in India this year.
Moving onto another Italian brand, 2020 was a tough year for Ducati
