Kinetic MotoRoyale has introduced the FB Mondial motorcycle brand in India and the first FB Mondial model to be launched in India is the HPS 300, priced at ₹ 3.37 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The FB Mondial HPS 300 is essentially a retro-scrambler which has a lovely minimalistic design and looks quite sexy. The HPS 300 gets a chiselled fuel tank along with a flat seat and knobby off-road that gives the bike proper old-school charm. The motorcycle was first showcased at the 2017 EICMA Show and is based on the FB Mondial's HPS 125. One way to look at it would be that the HPS 300 is the most affordable scrambler motorcycle that you can buy in India.

The bike weighs about 135 kg which theoretically should mean solid power-to-weight ratio.
