The first week of March witnessed a slew of new motorcycles. From the launch of pocket-friendly commuters to news on some highly awaited motorcycles, a lot happened in the last seven days.

BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Launch

The Japanese brand’s most affordable bike was due for a comeback and we were the first to break the news to you. Now, that the 2021 Ninja 300 has been launched, it has left enthusiasts wanting more. After all, there aren’t many updates to justify the Rs 20,000 price hike. That said, the 296cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine hasn’t lost out on power. For pricing, bookings, and other details, head here.

CFMoto 300NK Launch and CFMoto 300SR Timeline

CFMoto had been laying low since the BS6 norms kicked in, but the brand is looking to make a strong comeback. The onslaught has already begun with the launch of its most affordable offering, the  300NK, in BS6 avatar. And unlike other brands, CFMoto has managed to retain its BS4 pricing.

That’s not the end of it, though. CFMoto is gearing up to bring its supersport, the 300SR, this year to take on the TVS Apache RR 310. For exclusive details on the bike’s pricing and availability, read this story.

Platina 100 ES and Platina 110 ABS Launch

Bajaj seems to be quite busy lately. Barely a week after the brand was spotted testing a new Pulsar, it has launched two bikes. The Indian two-wheeler giant has launched Platina 100 ES, touted to be the cheapest bike with electric start. Just a day later, Bajaj dropped the Platina 110 ABS, the first 110cc and the cheapest bike to come with single-channel ABS as standard.

Apache RTR 200 4V Single-channel ABS and Star City Plus Disc Variant Launch

TVS disrupted the market when it launched the 2021 Apache RTR 200 4V with riding modes and preload-adjustable front suspension. However, the goodies were restricted to the dual-channel ABS variant. Now, the brand has launched the single-channel ABS variant with the same updates, and it costs a whole Rs 5,000 less than the dual-channel ABS unit.
