Brixton Motorcycles, the Austria-based brand, has taken the wraps off its four motorcycles with modern-retro styling – the Cromwell 1200X, Cromwell 1200, Crossfire 500X, and the Crossfire 500XC. The first two are bigger-capacity 1,200cc, twin-cylinder motorcycles, while the latter two are based on the 500cc platform. All four Brixton motorcycles, which will be brought to India as completely knocked-down units, are set to launch in the country during this festive season. They will be assembled at KAW Veloce Motors' factory in Kolhapur (Maharashtra), indicating that the bikes will likely be more expensive than their European counterparts. Now, let's delve into the details of each:

The first model on the list is a 1,200cc urban scrambler with a seat height of 800mm. Called the Brixton Cromwell 1200X, it uses a 1,222cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which develops 82bhp at 6,250rpm and 108Nm of peak torque at 3,100rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

For suspension, the Brixton Cromwell 1200X gets a telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock, both sourced from KYB. The bike rolls on 18-inch spoked wheels wrapped in tubeless block-pattern tyres. It tips the scales at 235kg (kerb). In the European market, it can be had at Rs 10.32 lakh in terms of pricing.

Next is the Brixton Cromwell 1200, a retro-roadster with the same mechanical components as the Cromwell 1200X. Even it gets the same spoked wheels, although with more road-focused tubeless tyres. This one is priced at Rs 9.99 lakh in Europe.

Coming to 500cc motorcycles, the Brixton Crossfire 500X is a cafe racer featuring a rugged setup. Powering the bike is a 486cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. Mated to a 6-speed gearbox, the engine produces 47bhp at 8,500rpm and 43Nm of peak torque at 6,750rpm. Hardware-wise, the Crossfire 500X employs a compression-adjustable upside-down front fork as well as a rear monoshock with preload and rebound adjustability. It comes with 120-section front and 160-section rear tyres wrapped around 17-inch wheels. Carrying a price tag of Rs 6.28 lakh in Europe, the bike weighs 190kg (kerb) and has a claimed mileage of 25km/l.

It has a seat height of 839mm and a kerb weight of 195kg. European buyers will have to shell out Rs 6.91 lakh for the bike.
