The second-generation Honda CB650R will make its way to India sometime in the second half of 2021. The new generation mid-size CB gets a 649cc liquid-cooled inline-four unit, which can produce 94bhp and 64Nm of torque. Honda has said that the new engine is a higher-revving motor, with a stronger mid-range. The CB650R will now come with a slipper clutch and other electronic aids, such as ABS and traction control. The CB650R gets Honda’s new neo cage racer design and will be a light and compact machine, with great handling.

Expected price: ₹8 lakh

Honda CB500X

2021 Honda CB500X

Over the past year or so, Honda has been focusing on the premium motorcycle segment. As part of its plan to expand its product portfolio, the company will bring in the CB500X adventure tourer to our shores. Powering the middle-weight offering is a 471cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled motor, which produces 46.3bhp and 43Nm and comes paired with a 6-speed transmission. Its features include LED headlights, an LCD instrument cluster, a slipper clutch, and more. If Honda brings in the CB500X via the CKD route, it will be priced at around ₹5 – 5.5 lakh. Considering that there are no ADVs in the ₹4 – 9 lakh price range, the CB500X should be able to generate some interest in the Indian market.

Ducati unveiled the all-new Monster recently. The new Monster comes with some major updates.
