Entry level Regal Raptor models that are expected to make volume sales for FAB Motors (Joint Venture partner) are DD 350E 9B, Daytona 350 and Bobber. All three models host the same powertrain with no apparent difference in tune. The engine is a twin-cylinder 320 cc fuel-injected & water-cooled unit, with Delphi ECU, capable of pushing 22.8 bhp max power @ 8,500 rpm and 22 Nm peak torque @ 6,500 rpm. Transmission duty is handled by 5-speed gearbox.
Dr. M.G. Jeelani, Fab Motors Chairman says once the manufacturing unit opertaional in Telegana by year end, production capacity will stand at 500 units a month. the development provides employment (directly and indirectly) to about 25,000 people. Bikes would be available in the price range of 2.96 lakhs to 3.33 lakhs. Fab Motors holds rights for Regal Raptor bike sales in eight countries, including India.
Regal Raptor DD 350E 9B is the entry level model that weighs 180 kg and carries a 14 litre fuel tank. To be offered in three colours, black, white and red, the DD 350E 9B will wear price tag of Rs. 2.96 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Regal Raptor Daytona 350 is a chopper-like model with 15 litre fuel tank but weighs the same as the former. Priced at Rs. 3.23 lakhs, the Daytona 350 manages 0-60 kmph sprint in 3.5 seconds and goes all the way up to 130 kmph.
Regal Raptor Bobber is also priced at Rs. 3.23 lakhs and has the same performance specs as Daytona 350. But it weighs only 170 kg with the tiny fuel tank that can hold just 8 litres. The minimalist styling of Bobber would certainly attract eyeballs on road, increasing the chances of selling more than the other two models.
