Added in: Lists

Building a new motorcycle, straight from scratch is a very expensive affair. Apart from the millions and sometimes billions spent on research and development, bike makers also have to make changes to their assembly lines and train their staff to prepare for a new model. This is why, most manufacturers try to update their existing, ageing models with new and often better features to compete with the competitors. Here is a list of upcoming next-generation models of existing bikes And scooters in India.

TVS Wego

The TVS Wego has continued for quite some time with its ‘body balance’ feature. Although TVS did splash some new colour schemes, graphics and features, in comparison, its stablemates like the Jupiter and the N-Torq are being lapped up in great numbers. A next-generation TVS Wego is under development and will come out to replace the now dated looks and equipment of this 110cc scoot. The new model could feature things like LED illumination, a new instrument cluster, revised styling and minor mechanical updates.

Honda Activa 6G

The most popular scooter in the Indian market, the Activa has seen as many as 5 generations of productions till now.

Royal Enfield Classic

Apart from updating the Classic range with ABS, Royal Enfield is working on a BS – VI compliant engine to comply with the upcoming emission norms. Spy shots reveal that not only the engine but even the chassis and sub-frame have received some changes and along with that, the bike will also be styled slightly differently. We expect the build quality to get better and maybe RE could even equip these new-gen bikes with a much-needed fuel gauge.
