Five Enfield mods your eyes will thank you for

Sugar, spice and everything nice.

Any ardent biker always rides for the passion and craftsmanship that goes to rock his world between his legs. And with Royal Enfield fulfilling most of those, it only makes blind sense that they become the right weapon for those who live to get their wild imaginations etched.

Royal Enfield entered the motorcycle industry more than 115 years back in the UK which makes it the world’s oldest motorcycling company in continuous production. Since then, they have been giving us with simple and resilient machines that are ridden across some of the world’s most exciting terrains. Then there came a wave of this breed of custom builders who turned these spirited machines into a beacon of beauty, simplicity, class and definition.

Royal Enfield will get two models in its upcoming 750cc range.

Royal Enfield will get two models in its upcoming 750cc range.

Apart from the Cafe-Racer styled, there will be a classic retro motorcycle running on the 750cc unit.

In a bid to create a niche market for themselves, the post-British Royal Enfield has a newfound interest in having multiple cylinders under its hood with added capacities. As we have been speculating about it ever since it was caught testing in Spain last year, fresh new spied shots of the bike has been surfacing the internet for a while now.

With these latest image snapped by enthusiasts on a social media platform, we now have proof of not one, but two 750cc motorcycles will be joining the bandwagon for 2018. Although there is minimal camouflaging, I think I’ve already fallen for this Classic 750 sprouting in all vibrant colours.

2017 Moto guzzi V7 III

2017 Moto guzzi V7 III

A tribute to 50 years of passion and craftsmanship.

Celebrating 95 years for a company is a big thing, and to have survived against all the odds was a mountainous task for Moto Guzzi. Even after having such a rich racing history of winning almost 3000 races and a couple dozen world championships, the name Moto Guzzi had eerily vanished from the motorcycle scene, until now. The calm before the storm.

Paying tribute to their past, MG headed to a major revival plan and launched the new range of V9 platform that angles towards the cruiser style rather than the V7’s roadster theme. And now, the brand is getting the third iteration of their most celebrated model, the V7 which is also the first model created by MG. Celebrating the 50th year of the first, the brand is launching the V7 III which will have four editions to it: Stone, Special, Racer and a celebratory entrant Anniversario.

Manufacturers and now foraying into the current wave of enthusiasts wanting custom and classic motorbikes. And for Moto Guzzi, it has its own deep roots to draw upon for inspiration from which the ‘V7s have been prepped up for the consciousness of the new generation of motorcycling. The V7 models will be the same breed of bikes that differ slightly to imprint different characters carrying the same soul.

Triumph Bonneville Bobber vs Harley Davidson Roadster

Triumph Bonneville Bobber vs Harley Davidson Roadster

The tale of a British Legend and an American Blockbuster.

The influence both these people have on us is simply a matter of a little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. We just love it when we see either of them on our streets, and without a doubt being some of the world’s oldest motorcycle manufacturers, they’ve become the jack of their trades. Both Harley-Davidson and Triumph have ever been at the neck of each other and giving us products of exclusivity at its best.

For 2017, they take the game up a notch and have sounded all bells and whistles. Having a rich heritage to back them up with their newfound designs, both Harley and Triumph have created pieces of modern art that look too good to be true. They may have in some way or the other taken inspiration from each other to give birth to what could be some of the best looking iterations of their iconic brands vis-à-vis the Sportster series and the Bonneville range.

Both these machines have been launched on our soil, both of them cost the same, both of them have similar engine sizes, and both of them are the next big thing for their family lineage. Here is our extensive though on how these two modern machines live up to their iconic silhouettes.

Triumph launched the much awaited Bonneville Bobber in India

Nothing else will look more retro and authentic on our roads.

Today, the Brit launched this beast of a looker called the Bonneville Bobber onto the Indian streets for a price tag much less than what we expected. Based on the Triumph T120, this modern classic can be yours for a price tag of ₹9.09 lakh (ex-showroom). (Much lesser than what we expected it to be at around ₹12 lakh)

Bajaj V22 has been rendered

Bajaj V22 has been rendered

Roadster, Cafe Racer and Scrambler editions have been imagined

Over the last 15 years, Bajaj has improvised itself a lot in making motorcycles, so much that it has ditched its roots as a manufacturer of India’s first popular scooter and becoming a motorcycle only maker, just like Harley Davidson and Royal Enfield. Some feel that this is actually a huge risk by Bajaj by not existing in the booming scooter market, but Bajaj strongly feels that its motorcycles are capable enough to keep it in the game.

And somewhat it manages to stay true to its belief, as the manufacturer is constantly working on upgrading its product portfolio. Bajaj knows that the market is actually shifting from puny commuters, and to be in the game, it is now expanding its lineup of powerful commuters.

The latest additions of its lineage has been the V15 and the V12 motorcycles that has been successful in striking the chords of hearts of motorcycle enthusiasts and patriots with its INS Vikrant connection. A true marketing masterstroke, the motorcycle’s fuel tank contains the invincible metal of the now decommissioned warship INS Vikrant, which somewhat raises its hype and market value.

An Italian artist who goes by the name Oberdan Bezzi and is also famously called as OBIBOI, has sketched some impressive looks of concepts which might be expected from the Bajaj V stable in the future. They include Roadster, Cafe Racer and Scrambler concepts and all of them have a bigger displacement engine.

2017 Kawasaki W800

A Classic looking motorcycle with all the modern features

When the name of Kawasaki strikes in our minds, we have always drooled over the flashy supersports under the ‘Ninja’ brand and the ‘Z’ range of naked streetfighters. These motorcycles from Kawasaki offer a perfect amalgamation of sharp looks, sharp performance and sharp riding dynamics, making them modern by all means which are stuffed with cutting-edge technologies as well.

Though, there’s another side of the story of Kawasaki, which most of the Indians are unaware of. Much like its European rivals, Kawasaki also makes some motorcycles in off-beat segments, with that of the retro roadsters being one of them. In the European markets, Kawasaki has been highly successful with the W800, a retro roadster which is high on retro design ethos and make you feel astonished that it comes from the same factory of Kawasaki which makes one of the most futuristic looking and high performing motorcycles of current times.

As we all know that how serious is Kawasaki for the Indian market, so much that it is contemplating to bring in the W800 to the Indian shores, which is quite understandable considering the amount of success other retro roadsters in its segment such as Triumph Bonneville range as well as Ducati Scrambler range are tasting in the middleweight segment of India.

2016 Yamaha MT-09 Sport Tracker

2016 Yamaha MT-09 Sport Tracker

When we hear about the word Yamaha, the first thing which comes to our mind is the very capable lineup of supersports which the folks from triple tuning forks do make. Right from the entry level YZF R15 to the mighty YZF R1, Yamaha simply makes the best lineup of supersports, which make the knees enthusiasts go weak after them.

Having an unshakable reputation in the field of supersports and a renowned name in the fields of naked roaddsters, Yamaha had a glaring absence from the world of adventure motorcycles, including semi-faired tourers and supermotos. To be specific, Yamaha never had a supermoto, as it focused only on supersports and cruisers mostly till date.

Now, after launching a range of new generation MT roadsters, Yamaha has started working on different versions on the platform of its existing MT-range, one of which is the all new MT-09 Sport Tracker. As the name goes, the MT-09 Sport Tracker is a road-ready tracker or urban scrambler version of the MT-09 roadster, which comes with a host of minute alterations and additions to make it look different from the standard MT-09. Here’s our quick overlook on the all new Yamaha MT-09 Sport Tracker.
