Auto Expo 2014: Vardenchi unveils T5, to launch in India soon
Vardenchi-Moto Morini has unveiled the ultra-premium Vardenchi T5 at the 2014 Auto Expo. Designed by Vardenchi in Navi Mumbai, the T5 is powered by Moto Morini's 1200cc V-Twin engine and will be launched in India soon.
While the model on display at the 2014 Auto Expo shows 19in/17in front/rear spoked wheels, the production T5 will get alloys as standard with the option of spoked wheels.
Twin exhaust one on each side of the underbelly, a trellis swingarm and digital instrumentation are some of the features that the T5 adorns, Vardenchi says.
The T5 will have Brembo discs dual in the front and single at the rear. The rear shock will be an Ohlins while the front is a Marzocchi upside down unit.
Since the Moto Morini engine is built for sports scramblers and sports tourers, its typical trellis frame has been blended into the one suited for a Vardenchi.
"It is a matter of great pride for us to put India on the map by launching India's first luxury motorcycle. Powered by the legendary high performance MotoMorini 1200cc V-Twin engine this motorcycle puts Vardenchi and India in the elite class of motorcycle manufacturer" says, Akshai Varde, founder-Vardenchi Motorcycles.
Other products unveiled by Vardenchi at the Auto Expo were the Moto Morini Scrambler and Granpasso.
Update: The Vardenchi T5 is not a concept but a production-ready model that will be launched in India soon.
Vardenchi T5 press release - 2014 Auto Expo
|Vardenchi-MotoMorini unveils Vardenchi T5- India's First Ultra Premium Motorcycle at Auto Expo, February 2014 Mumbai, Thursday, 06 February, 2014: Fuelling competition in the Indian luxury motorcycle market, Vardenchi Moto Morini, today unveiled Vardenchi T5-India's first ultra premium motorcycle at Auto Expo 2014. The motorcycle is designed and developed at Vardenchi's state-of-the- art facility in Navi Mumbai, while the engine is imported from Motomorinin in Italy. "It is a matter of great pride for us to put India on the map by launching India's first luxury motorcycle. Powered by the legendary high performance MotoMorini 1200cc vtwin engine this motorcycle puts Vardenchi and India in the elite class of motorcycle manufacturer" says, Akshai Varde, Founder-Vardenchi Motorcycles. About Vardenchi T5: Type" is the segmenting nomenclature at Vardenchi. So the fact that after a Type 1,2,3 and 4 Vardenchi is launching a Type 5(T5) its obviously revolutionary. The concept at Vardenchi has always been to create stunning motorcycles which have the highest design and aesthetic value along with supreme ride quality. With the T5 the idea was to introduce a ride with a lot more brute force and muscle. The obvious choice for the powerhouse was overseas and particularly Italy. MotoMorini' 1200cc Vtwin engine is one of the most desirable source of power and performance that a motorcyclist can dream of. Since the MotoMorini engine is built for sports scramblers and sports tourers a lot of work went into blending the typical trellis frame into one suited for a Vardenchi. Which is indeed more of a lifestyle ride stance. Keeping the drive train chain driven the rear tyre is a 200mm x 17" while the front is a 19" tyre. The first draft or concept that we have created has spoked wheels to bring out the classic aura however the production models will have the custom alloys with the option of spoked wheels. Twin exhaust one on each side of the underbelly and a trellis swingarm are some of the unique features that the T5 adorns.The T5 will have digital instrumentation and brembo discs dual in the front and single at the rear. The rear shock will be an Ohlins the front is a Marzocchi upside down units But features aside what we have tried to capture with this Vardenchi is the essence of a classic motorcycle in the body of a modern beast.|
