Vehicle manufacturers introduced some impressive four-wheelers, putting the show on fire, at the 15th edition of Auto Expo in Greater Noida. While many carmakers skipped the Indian motor show after a decline in sale due to economic slowdown, several other manufacturers like Maruti Suzuki India, Hyundai Motor India, MG Motor India, Kia Motors India, Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra, Volkswagen, Renault, and Mercedes-Benz decided to take part in the event.

However, most of the bike manufacturers decided to give the auto extravaganza a miss and only a handful of two-wheeler companies were present at the expo. Among those, Suzuki Katana, Aprilia SXR 160, and Hero AE-47 grabbed the attention of bike enthusiasts at the 2020 Auto Expo.

Suzuki Katana

Suzuki unveiled its Katana which is based on the Suzuki GSX-S1000 with 999cc, in-line four-cylinder engine. It pumps out 147 bhp of maximum power at 10,000rpm and 105Nm of peak torque at 9,500rpm. The new Suzuki Katana comes with radial callipers and ABS but the sculpted bodywork adds to the weight tipping it at 215 kg.
