New spy shots have surfaced of the soon to be launched Royal Enfield Hunter 350 in Chennai.

The Hunter 350 gets a round headlamp, tail-lamp and indicators. The rearview mirrors are also round and seem to be mounted on sturdy handlebars. The test unit was sporting a single-piece seat and disc brakes at the fore and aft. The motorcycle is poised to get the tried and tested 349 cc motor from the Meteor 350.

Yesterday, we had covered the unveiling of Husqvarna’s first electric mobility concept – the MY2022 E-Pilen; slated to be the first in a long line-up of fully electric-powered two-wheelers (PTW) options.

Developed under the aegis of Pierer Mobility Group, the E-Pilen will sport a power output of 8 kW and a range of 100 km with its modular swappable battery system.

Additional information about the E-mobility range should be divulged close to the launch of the production model. The Husqvarna E-Pilen has certainly piqued our curiosity at motorad gears.

While we eagerly wait for the production model to be shown at EICMA 2021, here are a bunch of high-resolution images for your eyes to feast on till then!

Honda to launch four electric two wheelers by 2024

Posted on Leave a comment

Honda recently announced a target to become 100% electric by 2040. Knowing how motorcycles constitute a sizeable component of Honda’s global sales, the timing could not have been appropriate to announce a slew of electric models.

The first three models to be launched by 2024 include two electric scooters and a small-sized electric motorcycle. These are squarely aimed for personal mobility in an urban setting.

We have already seen a patent application by Honda last year in which a CB125R type model can be deciphered. There is no concrete information on the larger electric motorcycle that Honda is yet to unveil, although Honda had filed a patent for an electric motorcycle with a drone built into the rear subframe.

Which model would you like to see in India first? Let us know in the comment section below.

Developed under the aegis of Pierer Mobility Group, the E-Pilen will sport a power output of 8 kW and a range of 100 km with its modular swappable battery system.

Bajaj Auto and Pierer Mobility are jointly developing a common 48-volt eletric two-wheeler platform in the power range of 3 kW to 10 kW. The first product to be launched out of this partnership is the Bajaj Chetak electric scooter.

Additional information about the E-mobility range should be divulged close to the launch of the production model. The Husqvarna E-Pilen has certainly piqued our curiosity at motorad gears.
