Mahindra is sketching a different course for its future.
The Mahindra Group is billed at USD 19 billion currently but their motorcycle division hasn’t seen a single buck as profit on any year ever since its inception. Except for the 2012 launch Mojo, the rest of its housemates never entered the competition seriously and have been a disaster.
In a bid to tap the newfound interests in the sports tourer segment, Mahindra Two Wheelers is on the path to growing its premium motorcycle brand, Mojo. Doing so, the motorcycle division has officially withdrawn from the domestic mass market segment, and are looking to enter into the unknown.

Fuel prices are set to break all previous records and you wouldn’t have even known about it.
Gone are the days when every fortnight you had to wait for, what felt like an eternity, to get your tank filled with petrol because it costs a rupee more. Stand in the queue for hours all just to save a couple of tens. That was the human psychology up till June 2017 when state-owned oil conglomerates chucked the 15-year-old practice where they revised fuel prices on the 1st and 16th of every month.
They instead opted to follow a dynamic daily price revisions that changed the fuel costs on a daily basis depending on the international crude oil market. A coup or not, it left the citizens in a daft about the price fluctuations as it happened every day and before we got any clue about it, petrol prices have reached a three year high.
Royal Enfield has fired up their third factory near Chennai spread across 50 acres.
When Eicher took over affairs of Royal Enfield into their strides, they revived the dying fire of the cult motorcycle manufacturer. Since then RE has been at the top of the game releasing products that got every motorcycle aphrodisiac’s blood racing. Right from the Classic 500 till the very recent Himalayan. These motorbikes spoke for themselves, and the sales figures are the proof of this.
To keep up with the demand, the Chennai based brand had purchased a 50-acre land back in 2014 and took a record 15 months to build their third production plant in the country.
This is the sound of a new era at Ducati. Listen to the V4 "big-bang"

Thanks to the guys of MaxxMoto, we have now heard what this piece of machinery sounds like much before Ducati intended us to.
Should you buy the Fazer 25 or something else?
When Kawasaki launched the Ninja 1000 last month, we called it “The most serious sports tourer on the face of this planet, or any planet for that matter.” That is the best of both worlds. Period.
Now, the Japanese Blue team has come up with the “all-new aggressive tourer” Fazer 25. All they’ve done is slap a fairing onto the naked FZ 25 and called it a tourer. Not that I’m saying it’s wrong because that is what the Kawa guys did too with the Z1000. So technically, Yamaha’s Fazer 25 is marketed rightfully as a sports tourer.
