Weekly Wrap-up: From Latest RE Bikes Spy Shots to 2024 Pulsar Range Launch to Ather, Vida Launch Announcements

News by Team Drivio | 4 Mar 2024

Engines purred last week as spy shots and launch news set pulses racing across the two-wheeler scene.

  • Royal Enfield hints at future models with spy shots of the Scrambler 650, Classic 650, and Hunter 450
  • Bajaj unveils 2024 Pulsar range updates while Husqvarna plans a new 250 launch
  • Ather and Vida charge ahead with new electric scooter announcements

The flurry of updates points to an exciting month ahead, while some spy shots whet the appetite for even more surprises before March is out. Now let's dive into the details on this week in two-wheelers.

Spy Shots Generate Royal Excitement

Last week brought spy shots galore from the Royal Enfield stable, warming hearts and revving engines across the land. The Scrambler 650 and Classic 650 exposed their underpinnings through clever clicks, hinting at features to come. Meanwhile, the Hunter 450 roared through, promising a liquid-cooled rival for the 390 Duke. This roadster could well mark a new chapter for the brand.

Small Machines, Big Updates

While Husqvarna’s 250s and 401s enjoy the Indian streets, homologation documents whisper of a 2024 Svartpilen 250 launch. At the same time, Bajaj’s stalwart Pulsars receive 2024 upgrades: the NS200 and 160 get digitized gauges and transformed faces, while the NS125 makes progress too, albeit with fewer whistles.

Electric Dreams Take Shape

The electric two-wheeler space saw milestones as Ather Energy’s Rizta scooter got its launch date. Promising family-friendly transport with design and battery to match, this could electrify households nationwide. Meanwhile, Vida reintroduced a more affordable V1 Plus variant with upgraded range, lowering the voltage for new riders.

Launching into March

As we accelerate into March, expectations are high after February’s flurry of two-wheelers. The next lap may feature Hero’s rugged Mavrick 440 mixing with Bajaj’s updated Pulsar N-range. But with Royal Enfield’s spy shots still fresh, who knows what prototypes may yet emerge as the chequered flag nears!
