5 Upcoming Adventure Bikes You Should Know About – RE To KTM – GaadiWaadi.com

The dual-purpose adventure touring segment has been increasingly popular in recent years courtesy of the good reception for the Hero Xpulse 200, RE Himalayan 411 and the KTM 390 and 250 Adv series. Building on the momentum, new adventure motorcycles are waiting to enter the market and here we have a complete list:
On November 24, Royal Enfield will announce the official prices of the new Himalayan 450 in India before its market launch elsewhere. The dual-purpose adventurer tourer is equipped with a 452 cc Sherpa engine developing 40.02 PS and 40 Nm and is paired with a six-speed transmission. Taking an evolutionary approach to design compared to the outgoing 411, it features USD front forks, monoshock rear suspension, LED lighting all around, ride-by-wire throttle, a TFT console with Google Maps integration, switchable ABS, etc.
Bajaj/Triumph has brought in two motorcycles in quick succession and is said to debut a brand new model every year. Considering the potential of the 398 cc liquid-cooled engine and the existing Scrambler 400X, we do expect to see a full-on adventure touring machine to directly compete against the KTM 390 Adventure X and the all-new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.
The 2024 MY 390 Adventure will more likely launch in the coming months with two new colour schemes and new graphics. No mechanical changes are expected as the 373 cc liquid-cooled engine will continue. The Austrian brand introduced the new-gen 390 Duke and 250 Duke just a while ago with big updates on the design and mechanical front and we will have to wait and see when the 390 Adv will get a similar treatment.
2024 Hero Xpulse 210 Spied 1
To take on the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 and KTM 390 Adventure, Hero MotoCorp appears to be working on a flagship Xpulse and it could be powered by a 420 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine or the same unit from X440. The road testing looks to have resumed recently and Hero is also developing the next-generation Xpulse.
A test prototype suggests that it could use the same 210 cc liquid-cooled engine as the Karizma XMR as it is more powerful and will address the top-end performance issues of the existing Xpulse 200.
