Market Segment

The year 2017 will prove to be a treat for bike enthusiasts with the much-awaited upcoming bike launches not only in the segment of high-end performance and super bikes but also everyday commuter bikes. The recent new bikes launched in India already prove that this year can sure bring a storm in the two-wheeler industry.

Electric vehicles are expected to make it big in next 5 to 10 years. New electric scooter making companies are also expected to enter the Indian market in next few years. We can expect brands like Kawasaki to expand their market presence and launch new products in the Indian market. Brands like Hero and Honda will continue to dominate the mass segment. We can expect Bajaj to re-launch its iconic Chetak series of scooters as the scooter market is sprouting at a very high rate.

Expected price

Manufacturers like Bajaj are looking to enter high-end performance motorcycle segment and hence they will be launching new high-end products very soon, which will lie in the price range of Rs. 1.4 to Rs. 1.8 Lakh. The brand Hero will also be playing in the big bike market with new high capacity bikes, which will stand in a niche segment of Rs. 1.2 to Rs. 1.5 Lakh.

Expected Features

The two-wheeler manufacturing companies will be introducing features such as ABS and fuel injection technology in the upcoming bikes in the power commuter segment. These features will not just stay restricted to the higher segment bikes, and low and middle segment bikes will be seen with these features very soon.

Two-wheeler manufacturers like Hero and Bajaj are working towards electric two-wheelers and hence they will soon be launching new battery-powered vehicles that will stay independent of any kind of fuel need.

Expected Transmission and Mileage

All upcoming power commuters are expected to have 6-speed transmission, while everyday commuters will carry on with 4-speed and 5-speed transmission options. The mileage figures will range at 50-60 kmpl for everyday commuters, 30-35 kmpl for power commuters and around 20 kmpl for superbikes.
