Production of the MV Agusta Superveloce 800 Serie Oro finally begins after the manufacturers have resumed their operations in Varese, Italy.
The production-ready Aprilia RS 660 has now been listed on the official international website of the manufacturer and is set to launch soon.
Two new additions to the Japanese manufacturer’s range of BS6 motorcycles set to launch in India soon will be the Yamaha FZ 25 and FZS 25.
The Aprilia Tuono 125 was recently spotted online on the Aprilia India website. The price of the bike has not been mentioned yet.
All the features and specifications of the bike have not yet been listed on the website but this is what we know. The Aprilia Tuono comes with a lightweight frame, 40mm USD forks at the front and mono-shock at the rear. The bike is equipped with ABS and a 14-litre fuel tank. The bike is powered by a Euro-4 124.2 cc single-cylinder engine with a four-valve and SOHC setup. The engine is said to give an output of 15 hp and 11 Nm of torque at 8,250 Rpm.
You could say the Aprilia Tuono 125 is a baby Tuono v4 1100. Both bikes are clearly cut from the same cloth in the looks department. The Tuono 125 offers a riding position which is not too aggressive but a bit more on the comfortable, relaxed side.
Aprilia showcased the RS 150 and Tuono 150 at Auto Expo 2018. Customers were hoping to see these two bikes enter the Indian market but Aprilia surely has different plans for now.
It is practically impossible that we get the Euro-4 Aprilia Tuono 125 here as mentioned on their website because of the new emission policies. When it does show up, the Tuono 125 will be a direct contender to the KTM RC 125. However, nothing is confirmed until Aprilia officially launch the bike.

Ralson India have launched the Ralco Ecoracer at Auto Expo 2020 in the popular 120/80-18 size. It is an innovative and eco-friendly tyre for motorcycles.
The new Ralco Ecoracer motorcycle tyre is an environment-friendly tyre. It uses a high content of silica, a natural product, to reduce the use of pollution-causing petroleum-based chemicals. The silica-based compound helps reduce CO2 emissions as well as enhance the performance of the engine because the the use of silica lowers rolling resistance for the tyre thereby increasing fuel efficiency of the vehicle. The Ralco Ecoracer has a cutting-edge tread design to strike a balance between fuel efficiency, safety and durability. Unlike the usual tyres that are made with high contents of synthetic rubber and petroleum based chemicals, Ralco Ecoracer is manufactured with a high proportion of Silica. Silica reduces the friction between the road &tyre enabling smooth movement due to low rolling resistance and thus enhances the performance of the vehicle.
Ralson is India’s largest producer and exporter of bicycle tyres and tubes and has 40 % market share and presence across 70 countries. With an annual turnover growing steadily during the past six years to upwards of 800 crores in 2019, the company is drawing up major capacity expansion plans to capture the 2 billion-dollar two-wheeler tyre market. Raco, a relatively new entrant into the two-wheeler tyre segment, already has a 5% market share and two states of the art factories in Ludhiana, Punjab. With the introduction of the Ralco Ecoracer, Ralson hopes to take on the Indian two-wheeler tyre market.
