Working on a somewhat similar frame as the KTM-Bajaj, TVS took the jump with BMW Motorrad, especially after their stunt with Suzuki did not quite hit the cord. Both TVS and BMW will be sharing and developing platforms together to distribute products locally and the global stage. This joint venture will benefit TVS by bringing in investments and expertise to further broaden their R&D capability to improve on existing projects and bring in new innovations across their product lineup. In fact, TVS has already showcased a concept, touted to be the flagship motorcycle for the company.

According to OTOMOTIFNET.COM, Mr Aditya Putra from Corporate Communication of PT TVS Motor Company, Indonesia, confirmed to them that TVS plans to bring a new sports product, to Indonesia in the first half of 2017. And we believe it is the Akula 310. The Akula 310 will, however, be christened as the Apache RTR 300 in India.

We have been following the development of the 2017 Yamaha YZF - R15 V3.0 since the first spy shot was seen making the rounds on the internet even since early 2016. Post that, various render artists have imagined the motorcycle and have been updating their work as and when new information spruces up.

When the YZF - R15 rolled in 2008, Yamaha gathered enough success as it managed to capture the market leader boards. It gave us a product that was like a gateway for riders to get into the motorsport arena with this fully faired motorcycle having a powerful 150 cc mill. A lot of young riders opted for this superbike looker having a decent engine with high levels of refinement Yamaha is known for.

It was updated with a facelift in 2011 and the R15 V2.0 received a lot of pomp and fair due to its striking design which now looked even sharper with very acute angles from every corner of the motorcycle. Off late, the R15 lost its lustre because of the insane amount of competition but that is about to change. Some were not very impressed with the YZF R15s either. Maybe they were hoping for the V3.0. Luckily for us, news, spy shots and renderings of the upcoming R15 touted as V3.0 is filling the internet and we couldn’t have been much happier.

During the final leg of 2016, Kawasaki made it official about bringing a fresh new outlook for its entry-level sports segment, the Ninja 300. A much loved motorcycle in India which gained a lot of respect and its own share of criticism.

The 300 had replaced the unanimous quarter-litre king back in 2013 with collaboration with Bajaj Auto. The new bike was sportier, more aggressive and more fun to ride than the lesser cubed 250 cc Ninja. The bike was also packed with enough alphabet-soup tech acronyms that were scarce in other motorcycles in the segment at that time, and this made it very entertaining and accessible to new riders.

For 2017, the Japanese Green team have given this machine brand new livery and a limited edition one too. Along with the original Ninja 300, 300 ABS and the KRT edition, there is now a Ninja 300 ABS Winter Test Edition that takes on the looks of the Kawasaki FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) team during their off-season test sessions.

As we all know, it was Bajaj Auto which recreated the performance oriented motorcycling scenario in India back in 2001 with the launch of two Pulsars, the Pulsar 150 and the Pulsar 180, with the numerical suffixes of theirs depicting the cubic capacity of the engines of the respective motorcycles. While both the versions of the motorcycle were launched with the intention of laying down the foundation of performance motorcycling in India, the character of both the motorcycles were quite different. The Pulsar 150 was on the perfect balance of performance and fuel economy, whereas the Pulsar 180 was the motorcycle to bring out the delirious side of the rider.

With a bigger engine on the board over the Pulsar 150, the Pulsar 180 clearly became the new favorite of motorcycling enthusiasts, as there was nothing in the market at that time which could overpass the Pulsar 180 in terms of displacement and performance. Over the years, the Pulsar 180 has been given a series of cosmetic and mechanical advancements, in parallel to the Pulsar 150. However, with the advent of more and more refined and powerful motorcycles in the space of 150-250cc category, the Pulsar 180 soon began to show its age and began to feel a bit dated and underpowered in front of its contemporary competition

For the year 2017, Bajaj has given a mild update to the Pulsar 180 in order to bring this once-a-game-changer back into the game of competition. The new Pulsar 180 now sports a few minute cosmetic and mechanical changes as well as a couple of equipment additions, which have made the motorcycle look a bit more premium than before, if not drastically. Here’s a brief review of the latest version of the Bajaj Pulsar 180:-

Could This Actually Be The New Generation Yamaha YZF R15 Version 3.0

The news of the next generation Yamaha R15 was going rounds on the internet for quite some time now. Yamaha updated the R15 back in the year 2011 and since then it has been almost 5 years that the motorcycle hasn’t received any major update. Now that the motorcycle is caught being tested it certainly gives us a hint that Yamaha will be launching the new motorcycle in the year 2017.

Now this spyshot reveals quite a number of interesting new details about this soon to be launched motorcycle. Some reports states that the motorcycle will get a completely new powertrain which will be a lot more powerful than the earlier motorcycle. Reports states that the Yamaha YZF R15 Version 3.0 will get a single cylinder, 155 cc engine which is expected to produce around 18-20 Bhp of peak power and an equally impressive 17-18 Nm of torque.

This spyshots also reveals that the motorcycle will get a restyled headlamp cluster, a completely new digital instrument cluster, upside down forks which will definitely be first in its segment, a lowered pillion seat, apart from a completely new exhaust system and wheel design. Unfortunately the motorcycle still hasn’t received any ABS system yet.

Expect the motorcycle to provide maximum value for money in its segment when it finally makes it to the Indian market and replaces the current model sometime next year.

The Korean manufacturer has been really trying hard with having a success in the Indian market for a long time. All their success stories, if any, have been very short lived and with six models in the country, they have not managed to make a mark at the leader boards due their sky rocket pricing and cut-throat competition.

But without giving up on their standing chance, Hyosung have been undergoing a rescue mission and developed a new platform for their smaller capacity motorcycles. And the first iteration from them is the GD250R. It features a single-cylinder motor and is aimed at a full faired sport segment.

We all had seen the GD250N that Hyosung showcased at the Auto Expo in Delhi a couple of years back and it generated considerable interest. But it failed to launch and we are still waiting for it. Some reported about the homologation process taking too long and then came the costing, which the authorities at DSK thought that it will eat up the Benelli’s TNT25 pie. The authorities were in talks about having a manufacturing unit setup in India apart from the assembly plant in Wai, Maharashtra, which also doubles up as the assembly plant for Benelli. But that was the last we heard about the GD series until we saw spy shots of the GD250R running on Indian streets. And looking at the motorcycle, faith seems to have gotten restored.
