It will be majorly targeted at the audience looking for an entry-level adventure offering in India. It will not have any direct rival in the entry ADV motorcycle space and will cost somewhere around 1.60 - 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom), making it costlier than the Hero Xpulse 200 range, but cheaper than the Royal Enfield Himalayan motorcycle.

As HT Auto reported last year, the bike will utilise the Hornet 2.0's engine and platform. Expect it to feature the familiar 184cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that develops 17 hp of power, backed by 16 Nm of torque. The engine could come coupled with a 5-speed transmission.

It is also likely to share its exterior looks with the existing roadster, although with some prominent updates to match its adventure credentials. As per details revealed in the previous official teaser video, the motorcycle will sport a mid-sized black-tinted windscreen on its Hornet-inspired front headlamp. There will also be knuckle guards on the handlebar to give it a rugged appearance. In addition, expect the upcoming ADV to feature a raised stance, wide handlebar, wired-spoke wheels, and LED lighting all around. It is also likely to feature Upside-Down front forks and a single mono-shock unit at the rear.
