For the record, Piaggio has also previously showcased the RS150 and the Tuono 150 at the Auto Expo 2018, but never announced the launch of these bikes as the company believes that the market has matured to higher capacity bikes (300 cc to 400 cc) now.

The company also revealed that the upcoming bikes will be designed by its team in Italy and will be set for manufacturing here in India. In terms of exteriors, the design and styling is said to be in-line with the bigger litre-class offerings - Tuono 1100 and RSV4.

Piaggio has also recently confirmed that it will launch the RS 660 in the Indian market by mid-2021. The bike will arrive in the country via CBU route and will lock horns with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.
