KTM has been confirmed to be sold through the Bajaj Probiking dealers from next year. So they are likely to be displayed together.

I am not expecting anything from Autoexpo this time as my previous expectations never materialised. I am just hoping the ZMA FI shows up.

Hero Honda..

I think it'll display it's on goin models, somethin with the ZMA can be a possibility... An upgraded Pleasure can also be expected..

Bajaj

May be another variant of the Pulsars, the long awaited 2 stroke Di 100cc machines, KTM models, and if it buys some stake in Duke (distinctly possible) be prepared for a feast

Suzuki

Strong rumours of a 150cc machine being developed, just hope it is not another cheap Chinese counterpart

Yamaha

All their Superbikes, sad they don't have a Vale's motoGP winning bike for this time , and the agonisingly long awaited 150/165/250/(any more options??) bike to be supposedly launched. Also, rumours about a non geared Scooter for India may be coming...

TVS

The Flame, Scooty Teenz Electric, some concept bikes, may be a new StarCity Avatar, The Fuel Injected Apache, may be a 200+cc Apache...

Royal Enfield

New Fuel Injected REs, DTSi RE Engines??? What the...???

HMSI

New Younger Version of the Shine, Unicorn, a 100cc Made for India Commuter on the cards...

Hope this Auto Expo shimmers hope for the Indian Bikers...

You can expect a 125cc scooter & two bikes in the range of 125cc and 150cc from Honda this was from what the CEO told the press.

I dont think we are likely to see any groundbreaking 250s/400s from indian manufacturers. Maybe design studies like the 2004 TVS taurus and 2006 TVS Isotope.
Bajaj is the one to look out for .They have by far delivered what they show in auto expo and in swift time as well.
Am looking out for TVS this time. I hope they get us a 200cc fuel injected apache(keeping my fingers crossed).By the way TVS is going great guns with a new range of bikes and very good looking design theme(RTR,FLAME),So lets hope they get us some nice eye candy.

Dont expect anything from Suzuki .There wont be surprises.Suzuki would have a sad 150 and its complete international range(thats strictly eye candy) and maybe a commitment that it may bring in the gsxr1000 and BKing to india soon(take that as 1 year minimum.)

I loved the Yamaha stall in 2006.it was splendid.I spent an hour just watching Rossi's 2005 M1(Rossi is god) and i thought finally someone is taking the indian buyer seriously.ALAS all we got were sad libero and gladiator replicas. the R1 would be the big USP this year.

My point.WATCH OUT FOR TVS and BAJAJ.They gonna rock.
