We have heard about Indian bikes with imported engines and International bike manufacturers selling bikes in India. Now, the Vibgyor Group introduces Gallop to us as an all Indian bike manufactured, which is based in West Bengal. This is the first launch from the company, and this Indian bike looks cool with good design and aerodynamics. It is a fully loaded bike with high class components and standard technology employed in its manufacture.
Features included in the Vibgyor Gallop in India are multi-spoke wheels, self start, standard suspension, engine kill switch, a fuel gauge that is digital and broad headlights. The overall look of the bike gives it a mean and bold look with supporting features like headlamps that are wide and mask, side panels and fuel tank that are body coloured. The bike looks like a cross between Yamaha RX 100 and Hero MotoCorp bikes making it competitive enough to compete with the likes of Splendor, Yamaha YBR, TVS, and Bajajbikes in the same class.
Vibgyor Gallop in India is run by a four stroke, air cooled, single cylinder, SOHC (Single Over Head Camshaft) with a displacement of 97.2 cc, 50 mm bore length, 49 mm stroke length. Vibgyor Gallop engines have the capacity of churning a power of 6.7 bhp at 8500 rpm and 6.5 Nm of maximum torque at 6000 rpm. Transmission is four speed constant wired mesh gearbox. In case of an emergency, the bike is provided with a kill engine switch, which shuts down the engine without further damage done to any part of the bike.
Vibgyor Gallop in India has a mileage of 75 to 80 km per litre. Acceleration and pickup of the bike is moderate as 100 cc bikes usually have less capacity engines.
All in all, Vibgyor Gallop in India is a simple bike. It has a large mask compared to bikes in this category. Graphics are another feature that gives an appeal to the bike. The front panels are large with trapezoidal headlamps along with multifocal reflectors. The front mudguard is body coloured. The dashboard houses the instrumentation panel, which is semi digital with the fuel guage digitalized. All the other instruments are in analogue mode, which include a trip meter, gear indicators, tachometer and speedometer. When feeling the handlebar, we see engine kill switch, pass switch and self start switches respectively. The tank looks colourful with cool graphics added to it. Seating is comfortable for both the rider and pillion with long and wider seats. When viewing from the sides, we see a chain cover and the fork springs of the rear shocks painted red. When viewing from the rear side, we get to see the indicators, luggage carrier, rear fender and grab rails.
Vibgyor Gallop in India offers a variety of colours on its first launch. These include red, grey, black and blue with the fuel tank coloured with racing strips. The mask, side panels, fuel tank and mudguard are all body coloured. The sporty look of the bike is further highlighted by painting the rear shocks red.
The Vibgyor Gallop price in India is Rs. 30,000.
Again, Vibgyor Gallop in India is a simple bike that is affordable both in pricing as well as comfort one would expect in this category of bikes. The company has looked into what people want in a bike and provided the necessary luxury needed. The bike does reasonably well covering long distances at ease. Moreover, the kill engine switch is a good option provided in case of any emergency to pull off without damaging other parts of the bike by just shutting off the engine.
Suspensions, braking and gear systems are all of conventional type and offer good comfort while riding with wider seats making journeys enjoyable. To add, the bike also features a self start switch, which is very helpful in heavy traffic. The bike does not feature the tubeless tyre option, and the instrumentation panel is a semi-digital one with the only digitalized component being the fuel guage making it a more contemporary bike. All other instrument parts of the bike are in analogue mode.
The price of the bike is low and offers excellent mileage. If people want to explore this bike, they really have to come out of the brand loyalty thought and make this bike happen.
