New bikes, updates, new electric scooters, and new big bikes - May was pretty hot-and-happening

May 2024 was packed with launches of new bikes, new electric scooters, and even some new big bikes in India. We give you an all-in-one lowdown on all two-wheelers launched in India this month. 

Bikes launched in India in May 2024 

Hero Splendor Plus Xtec 2.0

The Hero Splendor Plus Xtec 2.0 was launched at Rs 82,911 (ex-showroom, Delhi), which is just Rs 3000 more than the older model. The Xtec 2.0 gets a segment-first LED headlight with H-shaped DRLs, a hazard lamp function, and an H-shaped tail light. There are three new colours to choose from too. 

Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z

The Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is probably the hottest launch of the year so far. At Rs 1,85,000 (introductory, ex-showroom Delhi), it’s the cheapest 40PS bike in India. It gets the 373cc engine from the Dominar which continues to make 40PS and 35Nm. Some of its feature highlights include four riding modes (rain, road, off-road, sport), traction control, colour LCD instrument cluster with a dot matrix inset, and smartphone connectivity with turn-by-turn navigation. At 174kg (kerb), it is 19kg lighter than the Dominar. You can read more about the new Pulsar NS400Z in this launch story.

The Pulsar F250 is essentially a bikini-faired version of the new N250, without the inverted fork. At Rs 1,50,829 (ex-showroom, Delhi), it's just Rs 851 more expensive than before. It now comes equipped with an all-digital LCD instrument console, with smartphone connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, new petal disc brakes, wider tyres (110-section front, 140-section rear), and updated graphics.

Electric scooters launched in India in May 2024

Bounce Infinity E1X and E1+X

Bounce Infinity has launched swappable battery variants of its E1 range of scooters called the E1X and E1+X. And these are also the cheapest scooters in the range, costing Rs 55,000 and Rs 59,000 (ex-showroom, excluding battery), respectively. These scooters have an ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) claimed range of up to 90km, but with swappable batteries, you don’t need to worry about charging times. That said, the lack of a battery-swapping network in India is the only worry. When these networks are spread out well enough pan-India, the E1X and E1+X would make a very strong case for themselves. 

TVS iQube New Variants

The TVS iQube received a new base variant with a 2.2kWh battery pack, priced at Rs 94,999 (introductory). The top-of-the-line ST variant gets a new slightly more affordable 3.4kWh battery pack option priced at Rs 1,55,555, which will be available along with the more premium 5.1kWh battery pack which costs Rs 1,85,373 (all prices ex-showroom Bengaluru, including the EMPS or Electric Mobility Promotion Scheme 2024 subsidy).

iVoomi JeetX ZE

Pune-based startup iVoomi has launched the JeetX ZE electric scooter with three battery packs: 2.1kWh, 2.5kWh, and 3kWh.These are removable and can be charged at home or office.The claimed range is up to 170km and the JeetX ZE is priced from Rs 89,999 to Rs 99,999 (ex-showroom).

GT Force New Scooters

GT Force has launched their range of low-speed and high-speed electric scooters, starting from Rs 55,000. The range includes the GT Vegas, GT Ryd Plus, GT One Plus Pro, and GT Drive Pro.
