While India has already seen the entry of some high profile premium cruisers by international brands, the entry and mid-entry level segment has a big vacuum due to lack of players. To capitalize on this void, Fab Motors has launched three motorcycles by Regal Raptor – Daytona 350, Spyder and Bobber in India. The company has officially inaugurated their first outlet in Hyderabad under the aegis of Md Mahmood Ali, Deputy Chief Minister, Telangana. Prices of these Regal Raptor motorcycles start at Rs 2.96 Lakhs ex-showroom, Hyderabad.
As we mentioned earlier, Regal Raptor is a 15 year old brand owned by a Chinese businessman Mr Horse Zhang, the proprietor of Lifeng Group Co Ltd. Fabulous and Beyond Motors India Pvt Ltd (FAB Motors) have attained the exclusive rights to make and market these motorcycles in India. The bikes are, for the time being, imported from their manufacturing base in Shanghai as CBUs.
Powering all the three bikes is a 320cc water cooled twin pot fuel injected mill which produces 22.79 bhp of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 22 Nm of maximum torque at 6,500 rpm. Mated to a 5 speed transmission unit, the bikes are capable of hitting 60 kmph in just 3.5 second and flat out at 130 kmph (claimed figures). Braking duties are performed by 300 mm discs upfront and 240 mm at the rear.
