Aprilia RS 457 deliveries finally begin!

Aprilia's plans to commence deliveries of the RS457 from the start of March hit an unexpected snag, as revealed through discussions with dealers. Now, the bikes are anticipated to arrive in showrooms shortly. Once PDIs and RTO formalities are completed, deliveries are slated to commence in April. Test rides for the Aprilia RS 457 will follow shortly after the bikes are displayed in showrooms.

Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini reaches India

Ducati India marked the delivery of the second Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini in India. Of the three units allocated to India, the first was delivered in Gurgaon, followed by the second in Mumbai, with the third unit still available for purchase in Delhi. This exclusive motorcycle comes with a hefty price tag of Rs. 72 lakh. Ducati plans to produce a total of 630 units of this ultra-exclusive model, with 63 units reserved for special Lamborghini clientele.

2024 Triumph Rocket 3 launched 

Triumph listed the 2024 Rocket 3 Storm R and Storm GT variants on its Indian website following their international unveiling. Both bikes' prices have been disclosed, with the Storm R priced at Rs. 21.99 lakh and the Storm GT at Rs. 22.59 lakh. Notably, these prices represent a nearly Rs. 2 lakh increase over their standard counterparts. Official announcements from the brand and the arrival of the bikes at Triumph dealerships are expected imminently. At present, the Triumph India line-up consist of Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400X.

Upcoming Yezdi bikes spotted

Jawa Yezdi Motorcycles has expanded its range with the development of several new models, including the Yezdi Adventure Rally Pro. A social media video suggests that the company has prepared a new iteration of their existing ADV, the Adventure. This new model, purportedly named the Adventure Rally Pro, appears to have shed weight and boasts enhanced off-road capabilities with longer-travel suspension, knobby tyres, and other modifications.

In addition to the Adventure Rally Pro, another model known as the Streetfighter was spotted at the same event. It seems to adopt the entire bodywork and styling from the current Yezdi Scrambler. However, a notable stylistic and functional change on the upcoming Streetfighter is the two-in-one canister exhaust setup on the right side. Whether it progresses to production will be revealed in the coming months.
