The SWM SuperDual will be marketed by Kinetic-owned premium motorcycle initiative MotoRoyale, which also sells MV Agusta bikes in India. The MotoRoyale has also announced a partnership with British motorcycle brand Norton to assemble and sell Norton bikes in India and the rest of the South East Asia.
The SWM SuperDual will be launched within the next three to four months, Kinetic Group Managing Director Ajinkya Firodia has told.
The SWM SuperDual is a light-weight adventure bike powered by a four-stroke, single-cylinder 600 cc engine based on the old Husqvarna TE610 enduro bike. Also sourced from the Husky is the tubular steel chassis and the aluminium swingarm. The 600 cc engine makes around 54 bhp of power and 53.5 Nm of peak torque. There are no electronics to speak of though; no traction control, no riding modes, and no ride-by-wire. But what is offered is high-quality components – Brembo calipers, Sachs shock, Fast Ace forks, LED headlights and optional hard luggage, the SuperDual certainly promises a lot to the booming adventure bike market in India.
