Written by Ravi Kapoor

Whereas Honda has given us no clues as to what the upcoming mannequin could possibly be, our greatest guess is the Forza 350 maxi-scooter or a world 500cc twin-cylinder mannequin.

The approaching week is ready to be an enormous one for the motorcycling world. On August 7, we’ll first witness the launch of the eagerly anticipated Royal Enfield Hunter 350, and only a day later, Honda will launch a brand new BigWing mannequin in India. The Japanese producer has been teasing the upcoming launch, however with out freely giving too many clues as to what it could possibly be.

The buzzword surrounding the launch is ‘formidable’, which alludes to the truth that this could possibly be the Forza 350 maxi-scooter that Honda gives abroad. Very restricted portions of this scooter had been dropped at India some time in the past to showcase to sellers, and all of them had been quickly rapidly snapped up by consumers. That constructive reception may have prompted Honda to formally put the Forza on sale in India. The corporate will even have been inspired by latest large-capacity scooter launches in India, which embody the BMW C 400 GT, and the pair of 300cc scooters from Keeway.

One other chance is that this could possibly be one of many fashions from Honda’s world 500cc twin-cylinder line-up. At present, the CB500X is the one bike from this line-up on sale in India, and even it is a generation-older model than what’s bought abroad. Maybe Honda could possibly be bringing within the up to date CB500X, full with an upgraded entrance fork and entrance brakes. Or possibly the model is introducing one other one of many fashions within the line-up – one thing which it has expressed an curiosity in, previously. The candidates are the Insurgent 500 cruiser, the CBR500R sportbike and the CB500F bare.

Regardless of the case could also be, all will likely be revealed quickly sufficient. The launch is simply across the nook, and you’ll count on a number of extra teasers alongside the way in which, so we must always have extra readability quickly. Keep tuned!
