Upcoming Two-Wheelers In 2024

2023 was a good year for motorcycle fans, with a wide range of bikes entering the Indian market. We saw the Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X, the Harley-Davidson X440, the all-new Himalayan, the KTM 390 Duke, the TVS Apache RTR 310, and many more! But that is all in the past. The Indian automotive sector will have a fresh start in 2024, with bike makers planning a slew of releases throughout the year. Among all of the expected debuts, here are five Upcoming Two-Wheeler Launches In 2024 that have grabbed our interest.

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650

Upcoming Royal Enfield Bikes In India | Launching Soon

Earlier this month, Royal Enfield unveiled the all-new Shotgun 650. It’s the fourth model in the 650 Twins lineup, and it’s based on the SG650 Concept, which debuted at the EICMA 2021 show in Milan. The Shotgun 650 is a factory bespoke motorcycle that may be customized by anyone. The bike sports a bobber attitude, with a single broad flat handlebar, mid-set footpegs, and a floating single seat. The Shotgun 650 is powered by a 648 cc parallel-twin air/oil-cooled motor that debuted with the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT650 models. The engine, which has a 270-degree crank, produces 47bhp and 52 Nm and is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox.

Kawasaki Eliminator 450

We speculated that Kawasaki will unveil the Eliminator 450 during the 2023 India Bike Week event, but that never happened. Nonetheless, we anticipate that this bike will arrive in India in 2024, albeit this is not certain. The Eliminator 450 is already available in a number of different regions across the world, and it is powered by a 451 cc parallel-twin engine that is liquid-cooled and produces roughly 44 horsepower and 43 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Other features on the motorcycle include dual-channel ABS, smartphone connectivity, a circular digital instrument console, a slipper and assist clutch, and Kawasaki’s ergo-fit technology, which allows users to customize the seat height and footpeg location.

2024 Bajaj CT150X

Bajaj Auto has numerous new launches planned for both local and overseas markets, but the business appears to be concentrating its efforts on the commuter motorcycle category, which remains its mainstay. Spy pictures indicate that the company is developing a 150cc commuter for semi-urban and rural markets. While no specifics are available, speculations point to the new Bajaj CT150X. A closer look at the camouflaged test mule reveals a circular headlamp, a flat commuter-style handlebar with a brace, heavy-duty front forks, and a single-piece seat with a grab rail. The 149 cc single-cylinder engine from the Pulsar 150 could be used in the future Bajaj CT150X.

Hero Xoom 160

Hero plans to expand its scooter offering beyond 125 cc bikes, as shown at EICMA 2023. The Xoom 160 is powered by a 156 cc liquid-cooled engine, which differs from the engine found in the Xtreme 160R 4V. It produces 14 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 13.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm, which is sufficient for a maxi-scooter. Although the brand has not yet published the full specifications of the new scooter, we anticipate its release in India in the first half of 2024.

Kawasaki Ninja 500 and Z500

At EICMA 2023, Kawasaki unveiled two new middleweight vehicles. The new Kawasaki Ninja 500 and Z500 are powered by the same liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine but come in two alternative body styles. The Ninja 500 and Z500 will be powered by a newly built liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine, the displacement and other technical characteristics of which have yet to be officially revealed. It is also probable that the motorcycles will be equipped with the Eliminator 500’s 451 cc parallel-twin engine, which produces roughly 45 horsepower and 42 Nm of torque. However, it is safe to expect that the engine will be retuned to provide more power. The Ninja 500 features the same styling cues as many previous Ninja motorcycles, including a twin headlamp set up front, a complete fairing, and a sleek looking taillamp. The Z500, on the other hand, gets a completely redesigned headlamp unit that features a square LED projector flanked by aggressive-looking DRLs. The rest of the Z500 resembles the Ninja 500 in appearance.
