    @back to civic.

    i think you should not wear helmet so often you need air.

    dear i am not saying that our bikes are best. i am not comparing as there is no need to compare.

    i know its hard for you people to understand what i am actually trying to say.

    becasue those who have habbit to get impressed with such things cant understand.

    enjoy your rides dear.

    but remove your helmet when you dont
    Fish only feels tasty when you catch it by your own and journey is only adventurous when you do it in a tough condition.

    ^^im telling u that "our" bikes are not even ours....

    most of the important parts on these bikes are not manufactured by us, they are simply imported....

    aur jahan tak quality ka taluq hai, to why dont u tell us how they lack quality? are their materials inferior? have u tested them in a lab?

    ( take that helmet thing as a joke.. )

    It's not launched here as of now.Launch is expected this year in 150 - 200 cc category.AFAIK you can't import directly from India but via Dubai or SriLanka or Bangladesh it is possible.

    no need for emotions here....

    And for ur information Russia, India and Iran are COMPLETELY independent economies. They manufacture each and every thing themselves.

    And these pakistani bikes ur so proud of, more than half of the parts in these bikes COME FROM CHINA!!!
    None of the bikes we have in pakistan have been fully built here!!

    And the way you've insulted the russians....its not fair. They have the most advanced technologies in the world in terms of manufacturing. They were once even ahead of the americans....

    That's a sensible and unbiased post. kudos bro

    indian bikes are no doubt better than our CD's, CG's.... our companies are copying the same 70cc & 125cc Honda which is a fake copy and they suck at it too... what we need is something new, something more attractive and something economical...... these are the things which Honda must cover... look, style, milage too

    What's new | India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd.

    Yamaha zips ahead with the launch of the YZF-R15 version 2.0



    New Delhi, 6th September, 2011: Cementing its foothold in the premium segment, India Yamaha Motor today launched the YZF-R15 version 2.0 – a 150cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke fuel injected bike. The YZF-R15 version 2.0 is a new model that has been developed under the concept of a “Graded Up R15.” While maintaining the proven ease of handling of the existing R15, the R15 version 2.0 boasts of spruced up looks and better performance in circuit riding. The design elements are borrowed from the supersport model YZF-R1 that is adapted from YZR-M1 MotoGP race machine. The new bike is priced at Rs. 1,07,000 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) and will be available in Racing Blue, Midnight Black & Sunset Red colors.
    The R15 version 2.0 has undergone changes as compared to the present YZF-R15 in the specs of the Engine Control unit (ECU), drivetrain unit, a long aluminum swing arm, wider front and rear tires (radial tire for the rear), split seat, LED taillights and new-design middle cowl & tail cowl.
    Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Hiroyuki Suzuki, CEO & Managing Director, India Yamaha Motor, said, “Having witnessed the tremendous fan following received by the existing YZF-R15, we are very excited about the launch of the YZF-R15 version 2.0 which promises to deliver greater performance and enhanced features. Seeing the trend, the market for premium bikes in India offers immense scope as this segment consists of people who are looking for performance characteristics.”
    “The YZF-R15 version 2.0 is an upgraded version of our flagship bike YZF-R15 and is designed keeping in mind the comfort as well as the thrill of a sports ride. The YZF-R15 has been continuously gaining ranks in the hotly contested premium segment since its launch 3 years ago and we are sure to repeat the same feat for the new version too. With the festive season round the corner, we expect the new model to be an instant hit amongst biking enthusiasts”, he added.
    Based on the “Graded Up R15” concept, the development focused on the two main areas of body styling and sporty performance, and an array of optimum features were adopted throughout the machine to make sure that customers enjoy the thrill of a refined and impressive body styling in the supersport image with the newly designed middle cowl, tail cowl, split seat, LED taillights, new exhaust pipe & silencer specs. The newly designed middle cowl features improved aerodynamic performance at higher speeds - the aerodynamic resistance value is 4% better than that of the existing YZF-R15.
    The R15 version 2.0 also sports the first aluminum swing arm in the 150cc segment in the Indian market and has a truss structure that enables greater rigidity while improving handling in the turns. The new seat design enables a better feeling of seat grip in sporty riding. Also, “low front, high tail” design enables a riding posture that is well suited to both sporty riding and everyday riding around town.
    The new ECU control and drivetrain unit specs ensure that riders enjoy improved off-the-line acceleration and high speed performance. The silencer protector has also been newly designed in a way that adds cadence to overall styling. It adopts a carbon-look pattern on the surface as well as a model nameplate to add to the high-performance image and the feeling of quality. To improve the feeling of clutch operation, a more rigid clutch axle shaft than the existing type has been adopted. Furthermore, the pulley that serves as a medium between the throttle wire and throttle valve has been changed to a perfect circular type to improve the linearity of the throttle action and thereby achieve better response. The wider 130mm radial rear tire and 90 mm front tire impart reduced roll resistance, high-speed cornering stability and improved handling performance. A larger 220mm diameter rear disc brake has been adopted to achieve a better balance with the new rear tire size and ensure good braking power.
    Another interesting aspect of the bike is the mud guard and sari guard attached to the swing arm which enhances the exterior design product value. The new design of 5-spoke cast wheels achieves the necessary strength balance while creating a sense of lightness at the same time.

    Desert Storm

    Indian bikes vs Pakistani bikes - desert storm

    Classic Chrome

    Indian bikes vs Pakistani bikes - Royal Enfield UCE500 Classic Chrome 3

    Royal Enfield launches the Desert Storm and the Classic Chrome at Rs. 1,50,659 and Rs. 1,43,967 (Ex-Showroom Mumbai)
    Royal Enfield’s (RE) offering of motorcycles just got bigger and classier with the launch of two new models; the Desert Storm and the Classic 500 Chrome editions.

    Earlier this year, Royal Enfield showed a glimpse of the Classic Chrome on their website and tagged it as ‘coming soon’. The wait for the new launch seemed never ending but finally RE added the two new bikes to their range.

    Under its freshly painted skin both bikes hide the same specifications as the original Classic 500 model, which boasted of a 500cc TwinSpark engine, an Electronic Fuel Injection system and a power output of 27.2bhp. The design of the Desert Storm Edition has been inspired from the World War era, especially with the matt finish paint job, the RE monogram on the tank and the tank pads.

    The two new Classic 500 versions carry the same single spring saddle seat and look identical to the old classic except for their colour scheme. The ECU of the new bikes has also been revamped for smoother power delivery. Among other notable changes are the wheel sizes of the bikes that will now be 19-inch in the front while the rear maintains its 18-inch rim, but now sports a slightly wider profile of 120/80-18 in place of the previous 110/90-18. Also, the front wheel mount on the fork tube has been changed on both the bikes to accommodate the new larger front wheel.

    Speaking on the occasion, Dr Venkatesh Padmanabhan, CEO of Royal Enfield said, “When we launched the Classic in November 2009, we had not imagined in our wildest dreams that this new product would occupy almost 40% of our total sales within a year of its launch. During this time we have feverishly engaged ourselves in burnishing this gem. The fruits of this labour are now manifested in the Classic Chrome and Desert Storm.”

    The Classic Chrome will be priced at Rs. 1, 50,659 (Ex-showroom Mumbai) while the Desert Storm will cost Rs. 1, 43,967 (Ex-showroom Mumbai) while the on road prices will be Rs. 1,65,400 and Rs. 1,58,200 respectively.

The initials MV stand for Meccanica (mechanic in Italian), Verghera, the Italian city where the very first MV Agusta bikes were built, and this distinguished company ranks amongst the world’s foremost makers of seductively styled, premium superbikes.
    MV Agusta acknowledges the growing potential of the Indian two-wheeler market, with CEO, Giovanni Castiglioni (son of biking legend Claudio Castiglioni) and Commercial Director, Umberto Uccelli being firmly committed from the helm of their company to commencing sales in India soon, being aware that several rival European manufacturers like BMW Motorrad, KTM (with Bajaj) and Ducati already have head-starts and are on their way to establishing Indian foundations. The heavyweight Italian bike maker foresees the Indian premium bike market as set for sizeable growth over the next few years.
    Having recently entered other markets, including Australia, Canada, Brazil as well as China, MV Agusta are already well on their way to setting up shop in India. Various options are on the table, but MV Agusta is likely to grab their initial toe-hold here by commencing direct import of bikes as CBU’s (Completely Built Units) in 2012, while pondering ways to leverage the lower duty structure offered to manufacturers willing to explore motorcycle assembly on our shores.
    No, MV Agusta is unfortunately not confirmed to be showing its motorcycles at the Indian Auto Expo in January 2012, but we can find cheer in the announcement they have already performed an in-depth evaluation of our market and realize their 4-cylinder as well as 3-cylinder bikes have great potential, so Indian enthusiasts can expect to see no less than the complete MV Agusta model line-up when sales begin.
    Expect the handsome, naked bike Brutale family including the Brutale 920, Brutale R 1090, Brutale RR 1090, and spanking new Brutale 675 (numbers denoting engine capacity), apart from the sleek four-cylinder, 998cc F4 (192bhp) and F4 RR (198bhp), as well as three-cylinder, 675cc F3 superbikes.
    As around the globe, MV Agusta motorcycles can be expected to sport premium price tags in India, but being able to see these exclusive European sportsbikes, and hear their glorious exhaust tones is certain to tempt an elite few Indian bike enthusiasts, who will already know that MV Agusta are for superbikes, what Ferrari is to supercars.
    Stay tuned.

    It may be nearly the end of the year, but the Triumph Motorcycles Group has released its financials for the first half of 2011 (Q1 2011 & Q2 2011). Selling 48,684 units worldwide, Triumph saw a 7% increase in unit sales when compared to the first half of 2010. This sales increase brought an 11% boost in revenue, which totaled £312.4 million. Triumph attributes the sales and revenue boost to the incremental models that have been added to the range, like the Triumph Tiger 800/800XC and Triumph Daytona 675R.
    The company’s operating profit also grew over the same time period, with earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) growing from £15.1 million to £22.3 million. This 47% gain in income is quite the coup for the small British brand, which is showing strong performance in an otherwise horrible market. With the 500cc motorcycle market down nearly 50% from where it was before the recession, 2011 has similarly been doom and gloom, down nearly 7% worldwide, though the turbulent sales numbers do appear to be bottoming out.
    The Hinckley-based company hopes that the Triumph Tiger Explorer, Triumph Speed Triple R, and Triumph Steve McQueen Special will continue to push sales in 2012, but the British company is looking abroad as well. Set to release seven more models in India, Triumph will also be setting up production in the long-ago British colony. Triumph says the models will be large-displacement machines, likely models already in the Triumph line, rather than India-market specific bikes.
    Before we get a gluttony of remarks in the comments section, we’ll remind readers that because of India’s extremely high import tariffs, virtually the only way OEMs can price their motorcycles competitively in India is by having local assembly/production facilities. Triumph’s announcement that it will setup a production facility in India is more about the British brand hoping to tap into the growing economy and motorcycle market in India, rather than outsourcing production across British borders.
    Of course, we still expect those who don’t understand international sales tariffs to cry the sky is falling and that the Triumph name will be ruined by foreign production. C’est la vie

    KTM 200 Duke to get its India entry in Jan

    KTM 200 Duke to get its India entry in Jan

    Updated on Saturday, December 10, 2011, 157


    New Delhi: Bajaj Auto is planning for a sensational New Year gift for Indian bike lovers. Come January 2012, Bajaj will launch KTM 200 Duke motorcycle in India.

    Austrian bike maker KTM has reportedly tied up with Bajaj as its official Indian partner. The KTM Bajaj 200 Duke will be locally produced at Bajaj Auto Chakan facility near Pune and will be sold through Bajaj’s pro-biking showrooms initially.

    KTM 200 Duke was unveiled at the 2011 EICMA Motorcycle Exhibition held in Milan. According to reports, the motorcycle will get its India launch most probably during the New Delhi Auto Expo in January.

    When it comes to its pricing Duke is likely to give a tough competition to both Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR250R. According to industry sources, the Duke 200 will be priced at Rs 1.25 to 1.31 Lakhs (ex-showroom price).

    The 200cc bike will be powered by a single cylinder, liquid cooled, DOHC, four valve engine.

    Duke 200 will come with 25 horses and a dry weight of just 125kg giving it best-in-class power-to weight ratio of 200PS/tonne.

    The brakes are from Brembo's sub-brand Bybre with a radial four-piston brake caliper biting on to a 300mm brake disc on the front, while a 230mm disc with a single caliper takes care of the rear brake.

    The international spec sheet for the Duke 200 though presents very attractive power and torque figures for the KTM Duke 200, with a peak power of 26 Bhp at 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 20 Nm at 8,000 rpm.

    The bike is sure to set the motorcycle enthusiasts’ pulse racing and will be one of the few attractions at the Delhi Auto Expo.
