The motorcycle, which has always remained as one of the one of the most user-friendly and equally precise-to-use supersport in the world, received a thorough upgrade in each aspect, be its design, performance, mechanicals and set of electronics.

Within a year of its official launch, Kawasaki has mildly updated the motorcycle by giving in a few more equipment and mild changes to its powertrain.

Here’s a quick look at what all changes do the new Ninja ZX-10RR is adorned with, over the standard ZX-10R:-

Now according to the recent reports they will also soon be launching the updated 2017 Pulsar RS200 as well. Recently a You Tuber Aditya’s Vworld has uploaded a walkaround video of this soon to be launched fully faired motorcycle.

In this clip you can clearly watch that the updated Pulsar RS 200 will be available with two new colour options including grey-black mix and a white-blue scheme about which we have reported recently. At present the RS 200 is available with three colour schemes. We definitely like the new Blue and White duel tone paint scheme on the motorcycle.

Apart from the addition of two new colour options we actually don’t notice any other cosmetic updates on the motorcycle.

The motorcycle still is powered by the same 199.5 cc, single cylinder, triple spark unit, paired to a 6 speed gearbox this unit is producing about 24.5 PS of peak power at 9,750 rpm and 18.6 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm.

The Austrian Orange launched the RC editions of the Duke series in 2014 and gave it full fairings and a different riding dynamics to their Duke counterparts. It handled much sharper and gave the rider better confidence due to the more sporty riding position than the upright in the Duke.

For 2017, KTM updated their RC range, both the 390 and the 200, giving them an edge from the other contenders in the segment. While the 390 received better visual cues and better mechanical equipment, the RC 200, however, was updated with only new liveries and a paint job.

Finally, it is here folks. Giving an end to all the renderings, spy shots and speculations, Yamaha launched the latest edition of the famed R15 globally in Indonesia and called it the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R15 V 3.0.

The launch happened at the Sentul Circuit and the bike was revealed amidst the brand’s WSBK 9-time world champion Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales and the CEO Yamaha Motor Corp Japan, Yanagi.

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 received 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, including myself, were not very impressed with the V2.0. Yamaha somehow managed to screw up the maturity with regards to visuals on the V2.0 to make it look more toy-like. Luckily, the launch has the answer and we couldn’t have been much happier.

There is hardly any fault regarding the overall packaging of KTM with their RC and its approach towards performance-oriented segments of motorcycles. But, KTM believes in remaining at the top of the podium. Which is why KTM has given their RC series yet another update for 2017, which now has better visual cues and better mechanical equipment, thus making it compliant to Euro-4 and BS-IV norms.

The brand launched the RC editions of the Duke series in 2014 and gave it full fairings and different riding dynamics to their Duke counterparts. It handled much sharper and gave the rider better confidence due to the more sporty riding position than the upright in the Duke.

KTM is having a ball in the Indian two-wheeler industry with all its products smashing the competition right out of the ballpark. They have been the epitome of thrill and fun being experienced on two wheels, especially for the young riders entering the arena.
