The FB Mondial HPS 125 won’t be making to the Indian shores, MotoRoyale has confirmed to IAB. The development was confirmed by Ajinkya Firodia, MD, MotoRoyale, at yesterday’s event where the company launched 7 new bikes and 3 new brands.
Replying to IAB’s query on the possibility of the launch of FB Mondial HPS 125 in India, Mr Ajinkya Firodia.
The FB Mondial HPS 125 is very similar to the HPS 300, with the only difference being the engine specifications. The HPS 125 was spied testing in India in August 2017. HPS stands for ‘hipster,’ and the design language is unique in its own right. The company claims the bike is neither a café racer, nor a scrambler, but a fusion of both.
Powering the FB Mondial HPS 125 is a 125 cc single-cylinder, DOHC motor with fuel injection. The liquid-cooled engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 13.59 PS at 9,750 rpm and 10.5 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm. A 6-speed transmission transfers drive to the wheel through a final chain drive.
The FB Mondial HPS 125 features the same suspension setup as on the HPS 300. The front is a 41 mm upside-down unit, while twin gas-charged shock absorbers do duty at the rear. Anchorage comes from petal disc brakes at both the ends with floating radial callipers. ABS is offered as standard. The bike has a dry weight of 135 kg.
