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.

You know things are actually getting serious when stalwarts like the Harley Davidson are putting their money and testing out electricity to power their machines. And if you have been following the Marvel studio’s Avenger series, you might have caught the stunning Scarlett Johansson picking up things for the boys on a stealthy looking black widow’s electric motorcycle.

That very bike is the next major milestone for the Milwaukee company who have made a handful of the LiveWire bikes to bring it on the streets of the world and gain feedback from customers. What one might think of it as blasphemy, few were simply awestruck at what the engineers at Harley Davidson have come up with pulling off something that seem impossible by the brand.

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. So, let’s have a quick look on one of the most unique offerings from Kawasaki, the W800:-

And that line already includes Harley Davidson’s acclaimed Iron 883, 1200 Custom, Superlow and Forty-Eight. When such superhit blockbusters already rule the roads, you must have thought that Harley Davidson have done their job. You might be wrong and I am glad about it.

How do you create something to up the ante? Make it sporty and expensive with full performance package. The Harley Davidson way.

That is the Roadster model which is a little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. The most sport-oriented version of the Sportster series offering an alternative to more conventional cruiser variants. This young generation of a machine is a serious effort to reach customers outside the likes of the classic Harley Davidsons. Always something up their sleeves.

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.

There was a time in the Indian two wheeler market, when there were no roadsters or naked streetfighters available beyond a 150cc Bajaj Pulsar or Hero Honda CBZ. The enthusiasts were left with no other options but to pamper themselves with these two only viable options, which were a good amalgamation of performance and fuel efficiency, but were a far cry from being outright sporty.

A decade down the line, the tables have turned, and what we are having now is a bunch of performance motorcycles to choose from. The Indian market has now got everything, ranging from a quarter liter faired motorcycle to a middleweight roadster to a liter class adventure motorcycle. There are so many options available now, that the enthusiasts are confused which one to go for.

The first step of the ladder, however, is the segment of entry level 300cc motorcycles, out of which the roadsters happen to be the most fun to ride motorcycles. The segment got initiated with the debut of the KTM Duke 390, a single cylinder beast which is an epitome of value for money. But then, the mature enthusiasts started expecting more, about a twin cylinder motorcycle of the same demeanor as that of the Duke 390 – fast, fun to ride and easy on pocket.

Then, all of that changed with the arrival of Benelli in India, the range starting model of which was the TNT 300 – a twin cylinder naked roadster. The TNT 300 was the motorcycle which introduced the Indians the concept of twin cylinder roadsters, which are positioned lower to their fully faired counterparts, but are more engaging to ride in comparison. The segment to which the TNT 300 belongs to is niche and sales are limited, which explains its purity.

Currently, the segment of twin cylinder 300cc roadsters is limited to TNT 300, but the scenario will be changing in 2016, when the two most important motorcycles in this segment –Yamaha MT-03 and Kawasaki Z300 – will be reaching to Indian shores eventually one after the other. The game is going to get really serious, which brings us to the point of comparing all these three motorcycles head to head to find out which motorcycle will eventually become the benchmark in the segment of quarter liter/300cc twin cylinder roadsters. Let’s find out.

If there is one manufacturer which should be credited for taking the market of superbikes in India by storm, it should be Kawasaki. In recent times, Kawasaki has taken the Indian market seriously, which is why its newest of offerings are brought to the Indian shores in no time after its global unveil.

But that’s not all. Apart from the liter class or inline four superbikes, Kawasaki has also made a significant impact in the quarter liter and middle-weight performance segments. After making a sweet spot in the hearts of enthusiasts with its Ninja 300 and Z250, Kawasaki is now thinking of upping the game by bringing in the bigger Z300.

As the name suggests, the Z300 is a bigger version of the already on sale Z250, and is bound to replace the Z250 once it reaches the Indian shores. Designed and engineered on the lines of the bigger Z’s, the Z300 also promises to give the thrills of the Ninja 300 in a slightly more affordable package. Will the Z300 live up to the expectations it vows? Here’s a quick overview of the quarter liter naked streetfighter from Kawasaki.

Kawasaki has been trying hard to make a huge impact in the performance oriented segments of the Indian two wheeler market. The manufacturer, which has been on a roll in the last couple of years, has emerged as a champion among all the players when it comes to providing the best of Japanese engineering on two wheels.

After having multi-cylinder motorcycles of all sorts, ranging from twin cylinder quarter liter roadster Z250 to the mind-boggling inline four supercharged monster Ninja H2 on sale in India, the Indian arm of Kawasaki is now planning to make an even deeper dent on the sales of its rivals by introducing single cylinder performance motorcycles in the Indian market.

Out of its plans, the Z250 SL happens to be the first one to make an entry into the Indian two wheeler market. A single cylinder quarter liter roadster from Kawasaki surely seems much more promising and affordable for enthusiasts, given the fact that the twin cylinder Z250 is ridiculously pricey. Here’s our take on the all new Z250 SL which may make its way to the Indian shores anytime soon.
