Zontes Motorcycles prices are fairly competitive and it appears to be an interesting new addition in the mid-size bike segment in India…
So, Zontes Motorcycles have officially landed on our shores with not 1, but 5 motorcycles occupying 5 different motorcycle segments of the Indian market.
Just a few weeks back we shared the news that the Chinese-owned brand has begun accepting bookings for their offered models at the sum of Rs. 10,000/-; alongside their Italian cousins – Moto Morini – which are yet to launch their own 650 cc powered models.
Zontes Motorcycles have launched – 350R (Naked), 350X (Sports-tourer), GK350 (Cafe racer), 350T (Tourer) and 350T ADV (Adventure-tourer).
Zontes Motorcycles Prices – 5 Models
Zontes Motorcycles is a Chinese-owned brand that specialises in manufacturing motorcycles. The company boasts use of advanced industrial equipment in the production of their vehicles. They claim that their vehicles are manufactured using a fully robotised production line, low-pressure alloy casting, die casting and multi-axis welding among many other techniques.
Coming to the offerings –
Zontes 350R naked model is their most affordable model on offer, and has been priced at Rs. 3,25,000/- (ex-showroom). It is bing offered in 3 colours – Black, Blue & Silver.
The Zontes GK350 Cafe Racer and 350T tourer are priced identically at Rs. 3,47,000/- (ex-showroom). The GK 350 is offered in 3 colours – Black Blue, Black Gold & Silver Orange – while the 350T comes in 2 colourways – Champagne & Orange.
The 350X sports-tourer s offered at Rs. 3,35,000/- (ex-showroom) and is being offered in 3 colours – Black Blue, Black Gold & Silver Orange.
And lastly, the Zontes 350T ADV is the Adventure-touring motorcycle based on the 350T model, but with 19” front wheel and spoked rims, is the most expensive, priced at Rs. 3,67,000/- (ex-showroom). This means it is Rs. 30,000/- more than the segment-leader KTM 390 Adventure, which is an established global model with sales & support backing from Bajaj.
If you consider these prices in isolation, they appear to be higher than (established) rivals, however, when you factor in that these are CKD offerings (not confirmed), they are fairly decent specially from older times when such CKD models were priced insanely higher and hence, perished from the market.
All the 5 offerings from Zontes are poised to rival the various offerings from the brands – KTM, BMW & Royal Enfield. Can these new models actually offer more value than these big brands’ established models that have undergone multiple iterations & improvements over such a long time??
And what about the After-sales service & support for these models?? They will be occupying space alongside the Benellis & Keeways – that are being facilitated by Adishwar Auto Ride (who also brought Zontes) – and will probably be given priority after these brands.
There is a lot Zontes motorcycles have to prove in the Indian market as well as to the customer who is very particular where they are spending their paisa…
