The love for bikes in Nepal is insane. It’s the most practical and affordable traveling contraption for youths and the older generation! In this article, we present five new upcoming bikes in Nepal.
Some of these bikes are upgrades to already existing motorbikes, whereas some are just brand new! We are saying goodbye to the BS4 technology and welcoming the BS6 refinement!
Let’s look at the five new upcoming bikes destined to dominate the auto industry in Nepal for 2021!
New Upcoming Bikes in Nepal 
Hero Xtreme 160 R
The Hero Xtreme brand gets better and better with every new launch. You can clearly notice the refined design, style, and performance. The Hero Xtreme 160 R is a fuel-injected, BS6 compliant 160cc engine.
It delivers a power of 15 bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 14 Nm at 6500 rpm. In addition, you get a stylish fuel tank of 12 liters and a 5-speed gearbox.
Hero’s Xtreme 160 R is tilting towards an aggressive outlook. It glimmers as a streetfighter, and rightfully so! With a ground clearance of 170mm and a lightweight of 138Kg, you can easily maneuver this beast like a part of you.
Jawa Classic & Jawa Forty Two
We are already seeing the Jawa Motorcycles roar the streets of Kathmandu! You can find the Jawa motors in 2 variants in Nepal – the Jawa Classic and the Jawa Forty-two!
The Jawa Classic price in Nepal starts at Rs 6,48,500. Likewise, the Jawa Forty-two price in Nepal starts at Rs 6,20,000.
The two models of the Jawa do have their own identity, whereas they share similar technical aspects. These retro motorbikes spot a 293cc, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine.
They produce a 26.51 PS power and 27.05 Nm torque with a six-speed gearbox. Both these bikes have a fuel capacity of 14 liters and weight at 172Kg.

Yamaha XSR 155
For a very long time, Yamaha ruled the streets with its naked FZ series and a sports R15 series. For a fresh change, the upcoming Yamaha bike is the Yamaha XSR 155!
The Yamaha XSR 155 looks retro, has an inverted telescopic front fork, and rear mono-shock! It has a round LED headlamp and a dual-tone fuel tank. Something we are not used to seeing in Yamaha bikes in Nepal.
It will be interesting to witness the 155cc Yamaha engine whizz the 19 bhp of power and 14.7 Nm of torque.
This bike gets a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The Yamaha XSR 155 price in Nepal is estimated to be Rs 5,00,000.
Bajaj Pulsar 250
Yes, you read that right. The successor to the Bajaj NS 200 might be the Bajaj Pulsar 250! The 250cc motorcycle is in the process of production in India, and we may get to tootle this motor soon!
This upcoming Bajaj bike in Nepal shares the engine from the KTM Duke 250 which makes the Pulsar 250 all the more exciting!
So what are we expecting of this engine?
We guess that Bajaj will tone down the power output to 28 PS and torque to 23 Nm. The bike is likely to feature double disc brakes with dual-channel ABS and a triple spark oil cooling system.
KTM 250 Adventure
KTM knows no limit. Ever since its launch in Nepal, the brand has been marketing premium motorbikes. For better or for worse, KTM forces other motor brands to up their game!
The new upcoming KTM bike in Nepal is the 250 Adventure!
The 250 Adventure is powered by a 248.8cc single-cylinder engine. It borrows the same engine from the Duke 250 and the Husqvarna 250!
The bike borrows the styling of its elder sibling, the 390 Adventure. The sharp tank extensions, tall and flat seats, and long-tail sections resemble the 390 Adventure.
Sounds exciting, right? We are exuberated too.
These were the five new upcoming bikes in Nepal.
