As reported, 7 bikes from said brands are lined up for marking their presence at the Motoroyale outlets on October 11. Well, the time will tell, how many of these bikes launched on slated timeline.
Currently, the Motoroyale deals in brands like MV Agusta and Norton in India. All the activities from the import of motorcycles, their sales and after sales operations are managed by the Pune based manufacturer. Noted motoring forum, has confirmed the introduction of 3 new manufacturers with their lined up bikes on October 11. These are SWM, Hyosung and FB Mondial which will benefit one with a number of choices under the same roof.
Founded in 1971, the SWM is an Italian manfactuer that is popular for its enduro, trials and motocross motorcycles across the globe. Its arrival to Indian soil was announced last year. Here it will start its journey with its Superdual moniker. The brand consists of two variants-the Superdual T and X trims. Initially, the Superdual T that is a road focused motorcycle will be provided for Indian audience. Later on, the X version that is an off-roader will join its sibling in future.
Both bikes share identical powertrain, a 600cc, single-cylinder, four-valve DOHC liquid-cooled motor. In association with a six-speed gearbox, the mill is capable of developing 57hp along with 53.5Nm of torque. Altogether, in order to safeguard life of rider and pillion, the motorcycle is packed with disc brakes at both wheels with ABS as standard fitment.
The FB Mondial is a native brand of SWM, which also will rollout few of its bikes on retail on said date. In addition to this, the Hyosung is a south koren bikemaker, which earlier sold its products under the supervision of DSK MotoWheels. The later has gone bankrupt and left the Korean brand in the doldrums. Now under the leadership of MotoRoyale, Hyusong is getting ready for its second innings in Indian market. Also, we can see the re-introduction of monikers such as the Hyosung GT 650 and the Hyosung Aquila Pro 650 under the Motoroyale name.
Additionally, we could see a few launches from the existing MV Agusta and the Norton brands. It could be MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR, a streetfighter alonside an adventure tourer the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800. While, the Norton Commando and Dominator which were subjected to launch earlier will eventually hit the outlet.

Will, it be in need of expanding its dealership network in coming future to serve a larger space of audience across the country. The initial customer response will tell the complete story. Till then, just wait and watch.
