When compared to other standard bikes on the market, adventure bikes in the Indian market are now attracting a fair number of buyers and offer better capabilities and strong looks. As the trend grows stronger, a number of bike manufacturers have already launched many adventure bikes in India, and here are the top new upcoming adventure bikes that are soon expected to hit Indian showrooms.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450
The new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 is one of the most anticipated adventure bikes in India right now, and it is expected to be powered by a new 450cc engine. This adventure bike’s test mules have been spotted on multiple occasions, revealing numerous details about the bike, including the new trellis frame on which the bike is based.
While the brand has yet to release official specifications, the new Himalayan 450 is expected to have a 6-speed manual transmission. The new 450cc liquid-cooled motor is expected to have a maximum power output of around 40 PS.
Hero Xpulse 400
The current Hero Xpulse 200 has received a positive response from buyers in India, and it comes with an affordable VFM package. The brand is expected to expand the Xpulse line-up in the country with the release of the Xpulse 400, which will not only have a larger engine but will also have improved capabilities. It will reportedly use a new 421 cc engine and will be available in H2 2023.
While more information is not yet available, we anticipate the Xpulse 400 to have a lightweight frame and a small footprint. Furthermore, the bike will retain its VFM price tag, making it a strong competitor to other bikes in the segment.

It will be available with a five-inch, full-color TFT dash, LED headlamps with DRLs, a tall windscreen, sporty tubeless spoked wheels, and other features. It is powered by a 348cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing approximately 38 hp and 32 Nm.
