Ever since its entry into the Indian market, Harley-Davidson has become a cult name and has carved a niche among all the motorcycle lovers who ride for the pure passion of motorcycling. Within the portfolio of Harley Davidson in India, though all the motorcycles have been accepted with open arms irrespective of their high price tags and few obvious shortcomings, the most recognised motorcycle among all happens to be the Street 750. It made its debut in India at the Auto Expo 2014 and became an instant success, for the fact that it was (and still is) the most affordable way to lay your hands on a motorcycle from the iconic brand Harley-Davidson is.

The craze of the mid-weight naked is becoming more and more alive in the Indian subcontinent, and Harley-Davidson is looking at getting a bigger piece of this market segment too. To try out their luck, the iconic American brand has launched the third member of its Street family. It had more aggressive styling and improved handling above all of the Streets. That is the all new Harley-Davidson Street Rod. A little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. The most sport-oriented version of the Street 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’.

This strategy has been already undertaken by the British and Italian powerhouses, and each has launched their 21st-century machines to rope in the new generation of riders early on. We are talking about the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer and the Triumph Street Cup, which too are based on their retro-themed versions – the Ducati Scrambler and Triumph Street Twin. Here’s a comprehensive comparison to find out if Harley’s new baby accomplishes to stand out from Ducati and Triumph to be the most lucrative motorcycle to own. Here you go:-

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.

Motorcycle racing took shape the minute the second motorcycle was made. Then came the madness of setting speed records. Being the fastest man or building the fastest machine on the planet gave a new sense of high and want. It is intoxication indeed. Setting records for the whole world to know became a fascination and people spent all time and money into this pursuit of speed.

The oldest British manufacturer of motorcycles, Triumph, is no less. Following a successful practice session at the Bonneville Salt Flats, achieving a speed of 441 kph to become the world’s fastest ever Triumph, Triumph Motorcycles has confirmed the attempt to set a new outright motorcycle Land Speed World Record in 2017.

Triumph launched the much awaited Bonneville Bobber in India

Over the past twelve months, Triumph has been sweating it out on the arena and treating us with exceptionally new modern classics over and over again. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and just when you thought it’s time for them to take a well-deserved breather, they just pushed themselves into uncharted territory.

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)

There is ‘motorcycle’ and then there is ‘motorcycle racing’. Each of them has a different meaning for every manufacturer. And being associated with the latter is a form of prestige to them. The term ‘motorcycle racing’ was coined the day the second motorcycle was ever made and since then, the world of racing has seen a great deal of competition and rivalry amongst manufacturers and builders, all vying for the glory of unadulterated use of power and the pride of being at the top of their game.

The FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix is the premier class of motorcycle road racing held since 1949. The Grand Prix is categorised into three formats - MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3. All manufacturers put all their resources into running the best of their machines on the world stage and claim for the ultimate crown.

The year 2016 is coming towards an end and what a year it has been for the automotive industry in India. If statistics are to be believed, India is in the highest rankings in terms of growing economy. People have started investing in higher range of motorcycles that are lauded in the performance and engineering arena. More and more players started entering the Indian subcontinent to showcase their entry level performance machines. It just didn’t stop there. Players in India also fired all their pistons to go head to head with their foreign counterparts.

Since 1955, the year when the first batch of motorcycles in India were manufactured by Royal Enfield of United Kingdom, put together in Madras (Chennai), the motorcycle industry in the country has grown mountains with its own share of valleys. And somewhere in between promising players emerged within and managed to live up to the expectations and more. Today they are capable of producing motorcycles that beam innovation and technology acumen at the highest standards giving the competition a run for their money.

The CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards have been one of the few coveted award ceremonies where every manufacturer wants to grab top honours. This has been the way since the beginning of this century and is the only one held in association with all the apex industry bodies (CII, SIAM and ACMA). Every year these awards recognise achievements in multiple categories across the automotive galaxy. For things having two wheels, there are six categories of awards and the process of identifying these awards includes a jury consisting of members of the media house and experts in their respective fields.

When we talk about the Indian two wheeler market in person, this fastest growing market in the world for two wheelers, which perhaps will become the biggest as well in the upcoming years surpassing the markets positioned above it, has shown a tremendous shift in terms of customer preferences. Within this market, if we talk about the performance oriented segments as well, the category of 200-250cc motorcycles has become the range starting class, unlike that of the 150cc commuters as before.

Due to this shift, sense of increased maturity and flow of money, the riders are now looking out for middleweight motorcycles more, while upgrading their riding skills from a 200-250cc motorcycle. This has resulted in an increased interest and sales numbers of middleweight category motorcycles. Since the liter class superbikes are a bit impractical for their upgrade and usage, the middleweight motorcycles are currently considered to be the best bet to be their next purchase. The middleweight segment of motorcycles consists of all kinds of motorcycles right now, with the segment of roadsters being the most practical and preferred ones, which is quite reflected in their sales numbers as well. Currently, the Indian market has four different motorcycles in this space of 600-800cc roadsters – Kawasaki ER-6n, Triumph Street Triple, Benelli TNT 600i and Hyosung GT 650N.

However, Kawasaki has recently announced that it will soon be replacing the aging and dated ER-6n with an all new generation motorcycle, the Z650, which is a roadster based on the new generation Ninja 650. Like the ER-6n, the Z650 will continue the rivalry of Kawasaki with its competitors – Triumph Street Triple, Benelli TNT 600i and Hyosung GT 650N, all of which have varying strengths of their own. All these four motorcycles are made here via the CKD route, which explains their affordable pricing as well. Which brings us to the quest that which one of the four emerges out to be the best bet for your money? Let’s find out:-

This is Triumph’s efforts to prove that they still can rule the popular scrambler category. Pulling wraps at the ongoing EICMA, Triumph revealed the much needed answer everyone were asking for when they had released their Street Twin. Meet the Triumph Street Scrambler. The other sibling for the Street Cup born out of the Bonneville family.

Bringing in a significant update in capability and style to the iconic British company, the Scrambler builds on the Street Twin’s position as the fun and accessible machine and vies for top honours at the crowded segment which every motorcycle manufacturer is going collectively mad over.

When Triumph, for the very first time, came out with the Thruxton café racer range, little did we all know that this very particular motorcycle will go into the history books to be recorded as one of the most beautiful motorcycles to have ever made its existence in the world of motorcycles. And why wouldn’t it be, as the motorcycle is a perfect combination of old school and retro stance with modern design cues.
However, with the passage of time, the new Thruxton has become a bit more inaccessible for the new-for-the middleweight-segment riders, as the new Thruxton range comes fitted with 1200cc powertrain, thus becoming a bit intimidating for new big bike riders. Triumph too understands this very fact, which is why, it has came up with an all new middleweight café racer based on its new smaller Street Twin lineup.

Say hello to the all new Street Cup, a café racer based on the new small middleweight ‘Street Twin’ lineup of Bonneville, which will remind you of the previous generation Thruxton. Here’s our comprehensive review of the all new Street Cup:-

We all love the very beautiful Triumph Bonneville, don’t we! Over the last many decades, the Triumph Bonneville has been able to make the motorcyclists feel the unadulterated essence of motorcycling with its simplistic design and smooth power delivery, making the rider fall in love with the Bonneville each and every time he sits on the saddle of it.

But with the changing times, it is necessary to move with those changes and be up to date with the latest trends. Triumph too feels the same, and in an intention of making the classic roadster even more desirable, it has worked on the Bonneville platform to make it slightly more contemporary and more powerful. Few months back, Triumph upped the game by replacing the erstwhile existing Bonneville T100 with the more powerful and bigger Bonneville T120. But owing to the demand, Triumph has brought back the Bonneville T100 with some noticeable and comprehensive changes. Here’s our latest version of the all new Bonneville T100.

Calling it a “pure Bonneville hot rod” the British manufacturer captured the American way of the ‘30s in this brutally beautiful factory custom bobber. This is enough proof that this company has the guts to look elsewhere for inspiration when designing new models. And by the looks of it, they might have just manage to pull one over the Harleys or the Indian. That folks, is a statement.

Triumph may have garnered a huge interest of the Indian enthusiasts for its adventure range of motorcycles, but as we all know, the British manufacturer has a wide variety of motorcycles on offer, amongst which is its range of naked roadsters. The triple cylinder beasts, with their characteristic styling and performance, have made them a bit distinctive and special in terms if character, which is different from that of the regular breed of twin or inline four cylinder motorcycles.

In this particular range of roadsters from Triumph, the Speed Triple happens to be the flagship motorcycle, which was given a substantial makeover at the EICMA 2015. Along with the standard version, which is now known as Speed Triple S, Triumph did introduce a more hardcore and focused version of the motorcycle by the name Speed Triple R, which comes with a number of cosmetic changes, feature additions and a major boost in performance, courtesy the changes carried out to the engine, which has made the motorcycle a choice hard to resist from.
