2016 KTM RC 390
When we talk about exciting bike the KTM line-up is the first one to come our mind. The bikes from the Australian manufacturer simply makes us happy. KTM at the EICMA 2015 has made us cheer with the new 2016 KTM RC 390. The bike when launched in India early this year became the choice of the enthusiast crowd very soon. The sales were in huge numbers. Coming, to the new RC 390, the fully faired bike doesn’t get much of styling tweaks but the engine has been upgraded vastly. The bike is powered by the the existing 373.2 cc engine that puts out 43.4 BHP @ 9,500 RPM and peak torque 35 NM @ 7,250 RPM. The new bike gets a slipper clutch to enhance down shift. It also gets a new aluminium exhaust to meet the Euro4 norms. The top speed of the new bike is increased by 10 km/hr. The bike is expected to make its Indian debut at the Indian Auto Show.

The bike is powered by a similar 321 cc, in-line, twin-cylinder engine that pumps out 41.6 BHP and a maximum torque of 29.6 NM. The new bike looks like a perfect street-fighter with its sharp looks and the minimal use of fairing. The seating position is more upright with a lowered seat height at 780 mm. The bike will take on the likes of the KTM Duke 390, Kawasaki Z250, Benelli TNT 300 and the TVS-BMW G310R. Expect this bike at the Indian Auto Show.
Ducati Scrambler Sixty2
Ducati has launched the much awaited small capacity Scrambler Sixty2 at the EICMA 2015. The new bike is the least powerful offering from Ducati. The bike, though small capacity, gets the same treatment the elder siblings get. The scrambler look or the retro theme are not compromised at all. The Scrambler Sixty2 is powered by a V-Twin, 300 cc engine that puts out 46 BHP and 34 NM of power and torque respectively. The bike will be offered to Indian buyers as a move to make foothold in the developing industry. This bike is also expected at the Indian Auto Expo. To know more click here.

UM motorcycle is finally here with its India-bound motorcycle with the launch of its new cruiser the UM Renegade Sport S.

The UM Renegade Sport S will not face much of competition in the Indian market due to the availability of only two bikes in its range, the Bajaj Avenger 220 and the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350. However, the Bajaj is a much under power bike against the Renegade Sport S but the Royal Enfield will give a tough fight. The bike will be launched at the Indian Auto Expo. To know more click here.
