At long last, the wait is over for the 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 enthusiasts. The iconic dug-dug sound will resonate once again as the beloved Bullet 350 is set to make its grand return, but this time in a fresh and exciting new avatar. The highly anticipated J-series Bullet 350 is scheduled to be unveiled in just a little over a month from now, on August 30.
Hero Karizma XMR 210 Patent Leaked
Hero had some intriguing surprises in the works too. Among them, a design patent for the upcoming Karizma XMR 210 caught attention, revealing that Hero's Karizma is about to break new ground with a series of firsts for the company.
The highly anticipated Karizma will not only boast a liquid-cooled engine, a first in Hero's production bikes, but also feature a cutting-edge trellis frame, another first for the brand.
Following its previous announcements, the world's largest two-wheeler manufacturer was all set to introduce the refreshed version of the Xtreme 200S. The updated model boasts a powerful 4-valve engine, and that's not all – it received several additional enhancements, transforming it into a more comprehensive and well-rounded product compared to its predecessor. Despite the improvements, the price increase remains reasonable.
Okinawa recently revealed an upgraded edition of its flagship electric scooter, the Okhi90, and it comes with a significant price tag of Rs 1,86,006 – a substantial increase from its original launch price of Rs 1.22 lakh last year. The absence of FAME 2 incentives in its pricing has contributed to this sharp rise.
To put things into perspective, this revamped electric scooter is now priced even higher than the stunning Yamaha R15 V4 Intensity White colorway, which costs Rs 1,86,700 (ex-showroom Delhi). The price difference certainly reflects the changing dynamics in the electric scooter market.
