The retro-styled F.B. Mondial HPS 125 motorcycle was recently spotted in Pune by the members of riding group Bikers Brotherhood Club. The motorcycle was wearing a red numberplate and was spotted near the ARAI facility in Pune, most likely going through the homologation process before it is launched in India. This specific model is the 125cc motorcycle and we’re not sure whether the quarter-litre version is heading our way.
The 125cc version is equipped with a single-cylinder, liquid cooled engine, tuned to deliver 13.4 PS of maximum power @ 9,750 rpm and 10.5 Nm of peak torque @ 8,000 rpm. Other features include wire-spoke wheels wrapped in dual purpose tyres, upside down telescopic suspension upfront and double shock absorber at the rear, a flat handlebar with bar-end mirrors and disc brakes on both ends. On the left side are a pair of tall-set Scrambler motorcycle style exhaust pipes.

It’d be too early to comment about the prices. The motorcycle, as aforementioned, is most likely going through homologation process and we expect to see the brand making official announcement about the India strategy and the possible launch date at the 2018 Auto Expo.
