From EVs to the much-awaited 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa, February is surely an exciting month for two-wheeler enthusiasts.
The first few months of 2021 are turning out to be pretty busy and we’re not complaining. After witnessing several two-wheeler launches in January, we’re ready for round two. Here are all the two-wheelers we expect to see in February:
Triumph Trident 660
After its global unveiling in October 2020, the Triumph Trident is all set to make its way to Indian shores. The Trident is powered by a 660cc, inline-three motor, and the brand claims it is very friendly especially for beginners. It is one of the most anticipated offerings by the British brand and it will be the most affordable triple-cylinder offering in India. Triumph India had also started accepting its bookings in November 2020. We did a full story on the Trident revealing all details which you can check out here.
2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan
One of the most bang-for-buck ADV motorcycles in India, the Royal Enfield Himalayan is receiving an update for 2021. Royal Enfield has several things planned for the 2021 model as seen in various test sightings and leaked photos. It will see the addition of tripper navigation, improved ergonomics, and new colour options. Deliveries of the Himalayan were recently suspended and will resume once the 2021 variant is officially out.
Honda CB350X Scrambler
It seems Honda has been doing its homework because it’s set to launch a new motorcycle on February 16, 2021. What seems like a scrambler from the teaser, could actually take inspiration from the H’ness CB350 and use its underpinning. Not a lot is known, but we’re excited to see what Honda has in store for us. Perhaps, a CB350X Scrambler?
2021 Jawa 42
In Jawa’s comeback story, the 42 probably plays the protagonist. It’s set to receive a modern touch for 2021. Recently spotted with blacked out elements, the Jawa 42 might be getting a new variant soon loaded with alloy wheels and other accessories. Considering it already abides by the BS6 norms, no mechanical updates are expected. In other news, Jawa recently hiked the prices of its entire range.
Triumph Tiger 850 Sport
Another triple-cylinder motorcycle expected to hit our shores is the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport. This is the first time Triumph will launch the entry-level Tiger in India and it will be the most affordable Tiger. It’s powered by the same 888cc inline-three motor as seen in the Tiger 900 but in a slightly detuned state. Top-spec Brembos, adjustable suspension, and a TFT display come as standard. Be sure to check out its full details.
Earth Energy India
Indigenous manufacturer, Earth Energy will be launch its lineup of electric commercial and non-commercial vehicles on February 3, 2021. They recently teased three electric offerings: one scooter, a naked motorcycle, and India’s only electric cruiser bike. All the offerings are expected to be loaded with modern features and have a minimum range of around 100km.
Benelli Leoncino 500
Following the launch of the BS6 TRK 502, Benelli is all set to launch its third BS6 offering in India, the 2021 Leoncino 500. While there’s no official news, we expect the Leoncino to feature new backlit switchgear, revised instrument cluster, and redesigned rear view mirrors, similar to its ADV counterpart. Also, just like in the BS4 times, the Leoncino’s engine specifications will be the same as the TRK 502. Benelli recently revealed that it plans to launch a new motorcycle every 1.5 months, meaning we have many more Benelli’s are coming.
Kabira KM 4000
After unveiling the KM 3000 during the Auto Expo 2020, Kabira Mobility will now launch its naked counterpart, the KM 4000 very soon. The 4000 draws inspiration from the Yamaha FZ-S and will boast performance figures similar to a 110cc motorcycle. Top-notch features like an anti-theft system, LED lighting, and power modes, all accessible by a digital instrument cluster will come standard.

2021 Suzuki Hayabusa Global Unveil
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know about Suzuki Hayabusa’s comeback. You can read about it here. The 2021 Hayabusa will get a new instrument cluster with a TFT display, more sophisticated electronics, and a few aesthetic changes, along with a Euro-5/BS6 compliant motor. Expect its India-arrival by the second half of 2021.
Husqvarna Global Unveil
Husqvarna recently teased an all-new motorcycle, and it’s coming out on February 3, 2021. Very little is known about it but we expect it to be either the Husqvarna 125’s or the much-awaited Norden 901. One thing we know for sure is that it will be nothing less than an eye-candy, just like all other Husky’s.
