If you are planning to bring home a bike or gift it to someone in the new year or later in 2022, you can give yourself time waiting for some decent two-wheelers to launch. While it’s the time when the Indian automobile industry goes easy in announcing new models yet there is a handful of bikes to arrive. Not limited to the conventional petrol motorcycles but the new-gen electric bikes are also in the queue to cater the market demand. We have here listed upcoming two-wheelers including motorcycles, electric scooters, and e-bikes. Let’s have a look at them.
