Next bike from BAL

Was reading the June 2007 edition of Overdrive BSMotoring Auto Magazine. For those who don’t know this already, they listed out that BAL now got a bike with the following displacement’s:
100cc, 112cc, 115cc (There was a bike called Caliber115 but it had some 110/112cc engine in it), 125cc, 135cc, 150cc, 180cc, 200cc and 220cc.

Now they pointed out that though BAL has got all ranges covered, thay have left a big hole in the 150-180cc range. Now that New Apache 160 is positioned right there, how many of us think that BAL will let this happen? Atleast, I don’t think BAL will let this happen.

So what will they do? Simple, get a bike out in that segment.
How? With so many crank’s and piston’s in the arsenal, do a simple mix and match job. 😀

I did the same with some limited data I got with me.
Discover 135 got a Stroke of 50.8mm
P180 got a Bore of 63.5mm
So if this combination of Bore x Stroke can be mated, we will have a engine displacement of 160.9cc, Full 1.2cc more than what Apache 160 makes (159.7cc).

So when is this 161cc monster hitting roads? 🙂

  1. why should BAL release a 160/170 bike? The 180 is a perfect alternative to RTR at a competitive price. In fact I do not know why a power-seeker would consider rtr when 180 is within is reach as well.
