ZigSays

With the Aprilia RS 457’s launch, the sub-500cc multi-cylinder segment has gotten much more exciting. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 has been the segment’s lone flag-bearer for a while but now the RS 457 has arrived to give the Japanese motorcycle some healthy competition. That too at a much affordable price tag, which will surely make this segment more appealing and approachable for Indian buyers. And with the Yamaha R3 getting launched in less than a week’s time, things are just starting to heat up!
