Notable Price Drops Across Zontes 350 Range

The entry-level roadster Zontes 350R sees its price slashed by Rs 38,000, now starting at Rs 2.72 lakh instead of Rs 3.10 lakh earlier (ex-showroom). This makes it significantly more affordable than bikes like the KTM 390 Duke and BMW G310R.

Meanwhile, the fully-faired 350X inspired by the Ducati Panigale V4 gets a price cut of Rs 33,000. It is now tagged at Rs 3.07 lakh, down from Rs 3.40 lakh before. With supersport styling and a sub-3 lakh price, it offers great value.

As for the retro-classic styled Zontes 350T, its price has been reduced by Rs 25,000 to Rs 2.85 lakh from Rs 3.10 lakh. With its uniquely vintage design and lowered cost, it now competes with the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.

The most affordable model, the 350T ADV adventure tourer, sees the biggest price drop of Rs 48,000. It is now pegged at Rs 2.52 lakh, making it among the most affordable ADVs in India. This brings it into contention with bikes like the Honda CB350 RS.

No Changes in Specifications

Zontes has confirmed that the price cuts are not accompanied by any downgrade in equipment or mechanical specifications. All four bikes continue to be powered by the same 321cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected parallel-twin engine producing 37 hp and 32 Nm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The hardware including upside-down forks, radially mounted brakes, full-LED lighting and colored TFT displays have also been retained. The only change is an even more competitive pricing to attract sales in 2024.

With an attractive design, capable performance and the latest tech at lower prices, Zontes aims to disrupt the entry-level premium motorcycle segment in India. The brand is offering one of the most value-packed 350cc propositions to entice young enthusiasts.
