Forgotten bikes…. (continued)

Bajaj SX Enduro

Bajaj SX Enduro

Bajaj used to sell a two stroke bike called the Kawasaki RTZ100. The SX Enduro was essentially an on-road bike based on the RTZ100. However, the Enduro just featured off road styling and didn’t really benefit from better suspension or a more power state of tune for the 100cc engine.

Royal Enfield Fury

Royal Enfield Fury

Royal Enfield’s short lived tie up with German bike maker Zundapp saw the Indian brand building the Fury, a 163 cc two stroke engined bike that was meant to compete with the Yamaha RX100. The Fury used a hydraulic disc brake, a 5 speed manual gearbox, and a hard chromed cylinder barrel.

Kinetic GF170 Laser

Kinetic GF170 Laser

The GF170 Laser was the most powerful bike that Kinetic ever built for the Indian market. The bike was powered by a 165 cc four stroke petrol engine with 14.8 Bhp-14.2 Nm. A five speed manual gearbox was standard on the bike, and so were 4 valves/cylinder.

LML Graptor

LML Graptor 150

Like the GF 170 was to Kinetic, the Graptor was to LML. A flagship bike from LML, the Graptor was a Bajaj Pulsar competitor that never really took off. Odd ball looks let the bike down. On the equipment front, the Graptor featured a 150cc four stroke engine with 13.4 Bhp-12.8 Nm, a 5 speed manual gearbox and a front disc brake.

Bajaj Boxer 150

Bajaj Boxer 150

Bajaj built the Boxer 150 to sell it mainly in the African markets. To see if India’s rural and semi-urban market will warm up to it, the Boxer 150 was launched here, but it never really took off. The bike still represented the best that the Boxer brand offered.
