1 year back, if one asks to any random guy in India of which bike he/she is waiting for, the answer was a skeptical Yamaha’s 250 cc bike or Pulsar’s 400 cc bike. Google saw huge amount of searches for the keywords like ‘Pulsar 400’ and some even outnumbered any of the current releases.
2014 Auto Expo held at Delhi showcased the bikes India had been waiting for, well at lest we got a name for whats to be expected. Experts suggested that mostly all of the bikes featured in the Auto Expo may be up for a launch by the year end, but no luck was seen on that. Yamaha too was expected to bring in the market an upgrade to its R15 but instead Yamaha FZ-S FI was released.
So taking a gist of what happened over the last year and putting into frame what people are expecting, we present the TOP 7 Killer Bikes that will probably be seen on the streets this year:
1. Pulsar 400 CS
Literally everyone in India was waiting for these 400 cc Bajaj bikes since many years. Pulsar 400 CS has a Naked Frame with engine details similar to that of its SS variant. Bajaj showcased their twin pulsars Pulsar CS400 and SS400 at the 2014 Auto Show. Everyone has high expectations on them and both are suspected to release this year.
Take a look on the Bajaj CS400 here.
2. Yamaha R25
Auto makers in India were going to 150 cc, 200 cc, 250 cc and even higher for the mid-sports class bikes available under 200,000 Rs. While people were intrigued of when are we going to have a Yamaha Bike with larger displacement, an interview with Yamaha India chairman indicated plans to launch a bike with larger displacement, most supposedly the Yamaha R25. Take a look at its Review Here.

3. Mahindra Mojo 300
Mahindra Mojo 300 surprised us all with its killer looks and promising engine specs. Specs have been released but we haven’t had the pleasure of hearing its released. Mahindra astounded everyone with its 295 cc Mojo with 6-speed gearbox and unique styling. Take a look over review here.
