Would anyone buy one? Specs & the price would be the answer for my question.

Styling looks a bit extreme, one might either like it, or absolutely hate it.

NO THANKS from me, to this.

That's a great looking bike!! Will wait and watch for the reviews. Moreover, Piaggio has been making engines for a long time, so am sure the engine isn't going to be a let down either. However the price owing to the CKD and branding is going to be big factor on whether it is at all going to make any inroads into the highly competitive two wheeler segment. Would be interesting to see how the kinetic story unfolds.

Styling is very similar to the likes of Triumph Street Scrambler.

Right. I think this was a good launch, if not for the confirmed Royal Enfield 650s. Those two are much ahead than this 250cc single, when it comes to performance classics around this price range.

The bike looks wow, ... but >3 lakhs for 250 cc 25 bhp?
Looks tough to achieve sales quota numbers

That is one well detailed bike. Can't say much on the spec. but looks very well made.

Again concerns of service and spares will be an issue.

A brilliant looking bike. So far - that's it!
The power figures are puny, but might be liveable if the torque curve is flat.
Pricing is just out-worldly.

But, leaving everything else aside, why would I NOT SUSPECT, them to be yet another fly-by-night operator who'll just dump some inventory on unsuspecting, gullible customers, and wind up and flee, leaving the same customers with unserviceable and unsupported machines?

Too early to say - but Kinetic MotoRoyale concept seems to be trying to avoid this - by bringing all such niche brands under one roof and mitigating risk.

FB Mondial will be sharing showroom and service space with other niche brands like MV Augusta, Hyosung, Norton and SWM.

Wow! This bike looks really great. I can actually buy it just for the looks of it. But having said that, I feel Royal Enfield Interceptor would be a better buy in all the other aspects. I have heard hearsay information that It'll be priced starting at 2.8lacs*

Looks smashing, just a lac costlier though. Buyers will have exclusivity though, as I don't see them selling in even high spectrum of triple digits in a year.

FB Mondial HPS 300 to be assembled locally

According to a media report, Motoroyale is set to commence CKD assembly of the FB Mondial HPS 300 at its Ahmednagar plant.

Motoroyale had launched the FB Mondial HPS 300 in India earlier this year. The scrambler-style bike is priced at Rs. 3.37 lakh (ex-showroom).

The FB Mondial HPS 300 features wire spoke wheels shod with off-road tyres, upside-down forks at the front and double shock absorbers at the rear. The bike has an oval headlamp and a circular instrument cluster. It has a fuel tank with knee recesses, a flat seat and twin side-mounted exhausts.

The HPS 300 is powered by a 249cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 25 BHP @ 9,000 rpm and 22 Nm of torque @ 7,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission.

Motoroyale has received 100 bookings for the HPS 300. Deliveries are expected to start from December 16, 2018.
