The iconic British brand enters India via the CBU route for now and plans to commence local operations by 2018-end.

Design and Features
The Commando 961 Cafe Racer is inspired by classic British motorcycles featuring a round headlamp upfront, a tiny flyscreen, curved rear section and sculpted fuel tank with comforting leg recesses. For a sporty riding position, the bike gets aluminium clip-on handlebars. The flyscreen and the mudguard get carbon fibre treatment which adds to its looks.
The cafe racer draws power from a 961cc parallel-twin motor (slightly detuned for India) that develops 71.9 HP at 7500 RPM and 67 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. The powertrain comes paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The vehicle uses Ohlins 43 mm inverted forks up front and Ohlins twin shocks with remote reservoirs at the rear.
