We’ve updated this list for 2018:

Kawasaki Ninja 250SL

In 2016, Kawasaki hopes to debut in a more affordable motorcycle segment, with their single cylinder Ninja 250SL. The bike looks similar to the twin cylinder Ninja 300, but gets single headlamp set up.

Expected launch date : Not confirmed but Kawasaki is currently working on increasing localisation of existing bikes and thus reducing cost.

Kawasaki Z250SL

The Kawasaki Z250SL is a naked version of the Ninja 250SL and is powered by the same engine

Expected launch date : Not confirmed

Expected price : above 2 lakhs

Yamaha MT-03

With the Yamaha R3’s sales going slower than expected, it is heard that the manufacture will be pushing back the launch of  their MT-03 to somewhere late 2017. The Yamaha MT-03 is the naked version of the YZF-R3

Expected launch date: May not launch in India, Yamaha is concentrating on the FZ-Fazer 250

Expected price: 2.8 lakhs

Suzuki Gixxer 250/ Gixxer 300 (Twin cylinder)

A twin cylinder Gixxer 250 or Gixxer 300 was seen in full production form abroad, and this bike may make its way into India. Other details are still sketchy.

Ducati Scramble Sixty2

The most affordable Ducati currently available, The Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 will be a great way for people to get in to the Scrambler/Ducati lifestyle. It looks identical to the scrambler currently available in the market, but comes powered by a 399cc L-Twin engine.

Expected launch date: Mid-Late 2017

Expected Price: 4.5-5 Lakhs (could be priced higher)

update: TVS Akula 310 showcased at Auto Expo 2016

Expected launch date : Mid 2017

Expected Price : Less than 2 lakhs (wrong list)

TVS RTR 450 FX based motorcycle

TVS RTR 450 FX enduro

Though this isn’t confirmed, with the rising popularity of Adventure motorcycles in India, we may get to see something based on the RTR 450 FX in the country . The bike has already competed and completed the Dakar rally, which is in no mean feat.

Powering the bike is a 449.40cc mill producing clos to 55 bhp of power.

Bajaj Pulsar 400SS/400CS

Bajaj is expected to launch their most powerful motorcycle- The 400SS and the 400CS in 2017. They were first showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo, and served as a base for the 200SS (and the upcoming 200CS).

update: The Bajaj 400CS may reach dealerships in 2016 itself, and is heard to be Bajaj’s next-in-line bike.

-Dominar 400 launched

Expected launch date: 2016

Expected Price: near 2 lakhs

Hero Hastur

The Hastur is definitely not in Hero’s immediate project list and we will be lucky if it is ready by late 2017 or 2018

Honda CBR300R/ 250R

The Honda CBR300r was fist showcased in 2013, and went on sale in most markets shortly there after. But Honda has kept away bringing the bike to India, even though it is a very important market to them.

In 2015 the manufacturer brought out new colour schemes for the existing CBR250r, which can only be seen as a method to clear out stock. So we are hoping that the new version- either the CBR300r or the CBR250r will be launched in 2016.

Update-Honda will not launch these bikes in India

Expected launch date: No launch

Expected price: from 1.8 lakhs- 2.3 lakhs

Hyosung GD250r

The Hyosung GD250r is certainly one of the most hotly anticipated bikes in the country. It has an aggressive, sharp design, and should be available at an affordable price.

Benelli Tornado 302 (Tornado 300)

Benelli tornado 302 india

Benelli Tornado 302 is a fully faired motorcycle from the Italian manufacturer, and was showcased at the Auto Expo 2016.
