With the COVID-19 lockdown being lifted in most parts of the world including in Nepal, we witnessed several launches in the month of October across the world.

Here’s a complete list of launches in overseas and they will be launched in Nepal in coming months.

TVS has collaborated with Marvel and launched the NTorq SuperSquad edition. It comes in three superhero inspired liveries which get a lot of easter eggs for Marvel fans. TVS has plan of launching Marvel edition in upcoming months.
Bajaj Pulsar 125 SS Drum Brake Variant:
The Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat variant now gets more affordable. It costs very less than the Pulsar 125 SS disc brake variant and except for the front disc, remains cosmetically and mechanically unchanged. We are still uncleared about its launch in Nepal.

Triumph Trident 660:
The Triumph Trident sits below the Street Triple range and features a potent 660cc in-line triple motor. This retro-styled roadster features all-LED lighting, a colour TFT instrument console and a host of electronic riding aids. Despite undercutting the Street Triple range, this affordable naked has impressive underpinnings. For now there is no news about this bike to be launched in Nepal.

Hero’s new Splendor + Black and Accent Edition gets blacked out engine, wheels and exhausts. Customers can also choose between three graphics schemes or more opt for the whole special edition kit that includes the graphics, 3D Hero logo and rim tape.

BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS:
BMW launched the BS6 versions of its G 310 GS and G 310 R motorcycles. Besides a cleaner motor, both motorcycles get an LED headlamp and new liveries. The bigger news though is the massive price cut both bikes receive which bring them closer to their rivals and make them tempting propositions.
