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.

Today, we see this partnership taking shape in the form these spy images surfacing the internet where the bike is undergoing dyno tests on the factory floor.

You know that it is a big deal when BMW themselves call it ‘the most exclusive BMW motorcycle of all time’. At this year’s EICMA, BMW Motorrad revealed to the world an initial glimpse of the most exclusive model in its history to date: the sinister looking BMW HP4 RACE. The Germans have now showcased the production version of the same at the ongoing Shanghai Auto Expo 2017.

It will be a purposefully limited edition hand built motorcycle by the blokes at BMW, which will itself be a notch higher than the brand’s superstar, the S 1000RR-HP4. With a full carbon fibre twin-spar main frame and rims that are made in the same factory that makes carbon fibre components for BMW’s iconic ‘i-series’ and 7 series of cars.

The Indian leg of the Japanese brand, Honda 2Wheelers, is targeting a 20% growth in volume and has reportedly invested a tune of ₹ 1600 crore in new capacities and 4 new models it plans to launch in FY-18. Doing so, the Japanese are gunning for the pole position, grabbing it from its erstwhile partner Hero MotoCorp.

Meanwhile, what we know so far is that Honda has taken off their faired commuters, the CBR 150R and the CBR 250R off their official websites too and have stopped selling them. This could be due to the BS-IV regulations and they might even be updated with BS-IV engines and AHO. Or is the brand launching new generations of the brands?

It has been over a month that the world has witnessed the start of the World Superbike Championship. But for many like me, the season has just begun with the opening race of the MotoGP in Qatar. The Losail International Circuit saw shimmering machines under floodlights vying to their limits. With the guys racing like it was their final race like always, we got to see some nail biting overtakes and spectacular riding. The talent and the knack of precision shown by these riders is no ordinary show and we are always in awe.

But what we tend to often forget is the fact that not only MotoGP, any kind of motorsports activity is dangerous. With MotoGP being the pinnacle of it, you can expect it to be one of the most vicious events that happen on the face of the planet.

TVS Motor Company is the third largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India, and the Apache has been the company’s flagship since its launch in 2006. The “Racing Throttle Response" was the brand’s foray into the naked sports segment which, similar to the Pulsars, is gaining a lot of momentum into increasing the sub- brand’s product portfolio.

An Italian artist who goes by the name Oberdan Bezzi, also famously called as OBIBOI, has sketched some impressive looking concepts which might be expected from the TVS Apache stable in the future. They include ten different versions of the same bike, and all of them are running on 180cc and 310cc engines.

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.

Say hello to the new 2017 Ninja ZX-10RR then, which promises to be sportier and more eager to roar than the standard ZX-10R. It was launched in India yesterday and ’extremely limited’ number of units coming this way.
