These companies have gathered a huge and a nice response from the biking enthusiasts in the country. With Auto-expos also picking up the pace in the country, each year there are numerous bikes that are launched in India.
Here we are going tell you about the upcoming bikes in India:
Bajaj Pulsar 150NS Bikes: The Bajaj Pulsar 150 DTS-I has been in the market for quite some time now and it is expected to be replaced by the new Pulsar 150NS. There has been no upgrade to the best selling pulsar in the past four years. This worked against the manufacturers as the competitors went ahead and made several changes to their models. The new Bajaj Pulsar 150NS aims to put back the bike in competition. The new 150NS will be built on the same lines as the Pulsar AS 150. The bike will be getting both an electric and a kick-start.
