BMW G310 R : Excepted price Rs 1.6 lakh (ex-showroom)
The G310 R will come armed with a 313cc, single-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts that puts down 33.6hp of power, and weighs just 158kg. Of course figure-wise, this doesn’t seem to stray into 390 Duke territory, except for the price point of Rs 2.2 lakh. the G310 R will come with a reversed-cylinder design that slopes towards the rear wheel, instead of the conventional engine layout. This would allow for a more compact motorcycle with more evenly distributed weight and a lower centre of gravity.

There will be one road-oriented model with 17-inch rims at the front and rear, and one model equipped with a 19-inch rim up front to assist in off-road duties. ABS will come as standard on both models.With its spacious ergonomics, on-/off- road tyres, generous suspension travel and capability of carrying luggage, the TRK 502 would be ideal for long-distance adventure-touring.

The Leoncino will come with a steel-trellis frame that houses an all-new 500cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that produces about 44hp of peak power and about 45Nm of torque.

Yamaha MT-03 : Expected price: Rs 2.80 lakh
The MT-03 will sport the same 321cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that is seen on the R3, that will churn out 41.4hp of power and 29.6Nm of torque. Essentially, most of the components from the R3 have been carried over, including the suspension, brakes, wheels and tyres.The MT-03 now has a wider and more upright handlebar.
TVS Akula 310: Expected price: Rs 2 lakh
The Akula 310 sports a powerplant that was jointly developed with BMW Motorrad. It’s the same 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 33.6hp of power, which will power the BMW G310 R. The G310 R will be launched first in India, followed by the Akula 310 soon after. The bike should come equipped with USD forks up front and a mono at the rear. The display model even sported a steering-damper but we are yet to see if this will make it to production.
