Chinese-owned Italian motorbike marque, MBP, is building its foray into the Indian sector, & the model unveiled two styles in India – the M502N, & the C1002V. The manufacturer and its two bikes have been introduced at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023, and have been introduced to our shores by Adishwar Auto Journey India Private Constrained (AARIPL). The approaching MBP bikes will be sold alongside the Benelli & Keeway versions throughout India.

MBP M502N:

MBP’s initial bike in India will be the M502N. The bare motorcycle gets a very non-radical streetfighter styling, with angular system panels and delicate human body graphics. The motorcycle gets twin pod LED headlamps, a comparably small 4.2-inch TFT colour display screen, and quite a few other attributes. The bicycle is equipped with a KYB suspension with preload adjustability on equally ends, and rides on 17-incher Pirelli Angel GT tyres.

The MBP M502N receives a 486 cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin cylinder motor, which develops 46.3 bhp at 8,500 rpm, and 45 Nm torque at 6,750 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-pace gearbox. Stopping responsibilities on the other hand, are handled by J.Juan twin-disc brakes at the front, and a solitary disc at the rear. It also expectedly receives dual-channel Abdominal muscles. The bike has a reduced 790 mm seat peak, but the kerb fat is 198 kg (dry), which is on the better side.

MBP C1002V:

The C1002V’s V-twin motor places out 94 bhp & 102 Nm torque.

The MBP C1002V has the makings of a signature cruiser bike and will go up versus the likes of the Harley-Davidson Nightster and Ducati Diavel. The motorbike is driven by a 997 cc liquid-cooled V-twin mill earning 94 bhp and 102 Nm of torque, when mated to a 6-velocity gearbox. The bicycle also will get a 5-inch TFT screen that facilitates smartphone connectivity, navigation and a good deal additional.

The bike will come with 18-inch wheels wrapped with body fat 130- and 240-area tyres at the entrance and rear respectively, even though braking responsibilities are managed by two 320 mm disc brakes at the entrance and a single 300 mm disc at the rear with twin channel Stomach muscles. A 680 mm seat peak seems inviting and the ground clearance is also a nutritious 150mm. Even the 262kg kerb bodyweight is reasonably gentle for a cruiser of its ability.
