There was a review about it ins ome mag few months back. It looked very slim for a bull! It should be out early next year. RE is really doing a great job these days.

You mean the Aluminium engine designed by AVL?

Wow Bajaj has not even launched its 2500 cc bike and HH has already plans for 350 cc....this is really going to heat up the competition, and I am liking the sounds of it......

250cc is enough. For the Indian cities 350cc is overkill.

instead they must bring in a twin cylinder 250cc bike.

Lets not forget the fact that even if HH or Baja's gonna bring 250cc or even 350cc, teh price gonna be 90k+. So the sales numbers wont be a big. These big engines bikes only will cater to power hungry bikers who are a minority.

And about two cylinders... wont they be more costly than a sinlge cylinder and of course more powerful?

I think a single cylinder 350 will be cheaper than a twin 250.
Also they can price it compitatively.

Its not about price when talking about performance bikes. Its about driveability in the city.

If you are shelling out a lakh then you want the bike to be refined and driveable.

Hence a 250cc double though priced equal to a 350cc single makes more sense.
